When asked what it's like being married to a woman with type 1 diabetes, Ginger's husband, Roger, says, "It's wonderful!" But his wife's diabetes weighs on his mind plenty -- especially now that Ginger is pregnant.
"I usually hear her CGM alarm during the night before she does--she can sleep through even the most 'attentive' setting on the alarm options. And I look at the screen while I'm getting ready for work at least 3 times when she's still asleep. Before pregnancy, I definitely looked at the screen at least once, maybe twice, while getting ready."
