    I pump now, but I used to be on 32 in the morning and 56 in the evening, so 88 units a day of background...........

    now on the pump I am on 50-65 units of both basal and bolus.......amazing eh?

    it all depends on your size and insulin resistance [activity levels]....

    congratulations on the pregnancy.......
