"I use the bottom portion of the clip only. The pump stays in the clip and that's just one less piece I need. The case/clip is one of my biggest issues with the tslim. I switched from the Animas Ping and loved the slim clip. I have tons of…"

"That is so ridiculous! It would take them 2 seconds to do a blood test to put your mind at ease a little bit. Did you ever go to the ER? Were they able to help? I don't understand the resistance for dr's to see us early. They say that the…"

"Have any of you asked your endo if they have any recommendations for an OBGYN? They might have a good idea of someone who is experienced with diabetic pregnancies. Good luck!!"

"I'm on the same boat as you friend. T1, second pregnancy, (miscarried the first one) and you won't believe that these reasons are not enough for my HIGH RISK Drs to see me sooner than 8 weeks. Not even for a blood test to check if my…"

"With #1, I saw them around 6 weeks. With #2 (I'm 29 weeks now), I thought I was 7 weeks but turned out to be only 5. My current OB group also has only one secretary who handles their appointments, and she is quite often "away from her…"

First Appointment

Just wondering when everyone had their first appointment after having a positive home pregnancy test. I am pregnant with #2 but I have moved since my first was born so all new doctors and such. With my first one I had my first appointment and U/S at 6 weeks. I am currently almost 8 weeks and I am having such a hard time getting into the high risk OB/GYN. I have been on the phone with my PCP getting a referal and also with the high risk office for a week and a half. After MANY phone calls I…See More

"I definitely vote for the Clip over the Case, but the clip isn't actually very "clippy" (not nearly as strong and secure as the Med-T clip I used for years!) and on a semi-regular basis slips off my pocket when I'm pulling pants…"

Sarah K replied to Amy M's discussion 't:clip vs. t:case' in the group Tandem T:Slim Users
"Between the two, I definitely prefer the t:clip (the one that comes in colors). However, most of the time, I wear the pump without a clip and just put it in my pocket. I only really need the clip if I'm wearing certain dresses or for sleeping."
