Hi all, I just joined this group. I'm so happy that it exists! I'm thinking to start the pump again. During my pregnancy I had to use the pump, but I was glad to get rid of it once I could mainly due to my problem where to put/hide it. I like to wear skinny jeans, dresses, skirts so it was hard to find a good spot for it. Unfortunately in my bra doesn't work since I belong to the itty bitty club ;) But know I really feel that a pump is better to control my sugar levels and that is more important in the end.
I can really use information which pump and sensor you have experience with and where you 'hide' it.

I have had the Minimed Paradigm, the Animas 2020, & now on the Animas Ping. Ive never attempted to hide my pump, but I use universal cell cases to clip on my waist. I also cant use the bra trick, so when in a dress I have an elastic thigh strap to hide it. I guess because I was older when I was diagnosed & started on a pump, hiding it has never been a priority for me, but if it is attention that bothers you, most people dont notice. I have been asked why I have a pager but other than that people think it is a pager or cell phone, unless they are familiar with pumps, kinda like a secret club!

Thanks for your reply Kathy!
Today I got my pump so now I got to deal with it ;)

MJ, I'm just curious...why did u hate the pump??

I am apart of that same "COMMITTE" lol...I know its been a while but one thing that works are those bras that look like sports bras but are more comfortable! I love them especially when I want to wear something thats more straem line around the waist.
