    Did anyone wear their CGM in labour. I have a dexcom G4-it was invaluable in early pregnancy but a delay getting more sensors means I haven't worn it in a couple of months but birth plan for induction this week is for me/hubby to look after my own BS/insulin as much as poss. Not on a pump but have the CGM.
    Just wondering has anyone tried it on their arms? Or did you use it still in abdomen late pregnancy and if so where? Thanks in advance!

    I can't advise about a CGM I'm afraid but I was wearing a libre all through pregnancy and also labour and following emergency section and it was invaluable cos we could just quickly scan and knew what was going on. I'd recommend having your CGM on. It'll make it easier I think. Good luck! xx
