Hello,

Just wonder how you ladies wear the sensor with the bump. I read in the manual that you should wear the sensor on your abdomen but wouldn't that be uncomfortable when you get to 2nd/3rd trimester?

am also concerned with the transmitter signals being so close to the baby..

Would you suggest wearing on the thighs, arms or maybe behind my hip, wonder if it'll be less accurate on these sites?

I also want to put a piece of Opsite Flex tape over the whole transmitter in case it falls off. Also read that I shouldn't do that but not sure why though??

thanks.

I wear mine on my upper arm, near my shoulder.. sort of where your pocket book strap hits. It's very accurate, out of the way.. and off my tummy. Having my pump there is plenty for me.

My son , Jesse.. although not planning on ever being pregnant,
has never worn the sensor on his abdomen...
always on his upper arm, on the outside area.
