I just got the ping. I was leaning toward omnipod for a very long time, but I eventually decided that I didn't care for the large lump of the pod on my body. I tried the dummy pods that they'll send you if you ask, but they seemed too in the way for me. The insets lay flat against my skin and I can disconnect the tubing when I want to. I didn't like that I couldn't remove the pod or part of it from my skin without wasting it.
Today is my first day wearing my ping, and I just tucked the pump into my clothes (my bra, but I assume your choice will be pocket, lol). It's not in the way at all, so far. We'll see what happens when I try to go to sleep tonight...
Thanks for sharing this knittykat. I am waiting for my pump (Minimed 723 Revel) to arrive. I am wondering whether or not to attach the inset to the back of my arm and wear the pump in my bra or on my waistband. I use a computer all day for work and talk on the phone and I don't want it to be bothersome. I think attaching it to my abdomen or my upper buttocks will work too.
I've been wearing the pump in my bra. I don't have much space to hide it there, but I stick it kind of up in the corner of the cup, and it's not too noticeable. I feel like anyone who notices it is looking too hard at your boobs and should get the wag of your finger anyway! I like it there because when I put it in my pants pocket I have to be really careful when I pull my pants down in the bathroom. Not undoable, but annoying. I don't have to worry about it at all in my bra.
How are things going with the Ping? I just got an Omnipod and I also wore the dummy pods before I ordered the real thing but a dummy pod for 3 days didn't set me up for having it on forever. It's getting really annoying. I'm asking about switching but I always try to make the best decision possible so if you could tell me the pros and cons of switching for yourself it would be really helpful I think.
I wear my ping in my bra ALL the time. When I do any activity or anything I wear a normal bra with the pump clipped in the middle as usual but when I put a sports bra over top to keep the pump down & the ta ta's tamed. LOL!
