    In or out of bed levels are changing all the time A monitor reading is only an indication of what your levels are at that precise moment by the time you read the result it will have already changed even if you are still in bed

    We are trying to get pregnant at the moment so I'm always concerned with what could potentially be on my hands before taking my fasting BGL. Your comment really resonated with me and made me belly chuckle so loud that my doggie woke up with a start!
