But I got back on it and now have av 8 month old perfect baby girl. I'm not medically trained at all, but it seems to be that the insulin issue would be w much bigger problem with chronic missed doses than just one. Hugs to you. I didn't really stop being terrified until around 15 weeks. But I did stop. You will get there!
