After my shower this morning, I tried connecting my pump. When I did that, the little round plastic thing would not connect to my stomach. This has happened to me several times before and it's getting to be a hassle. I end up just getting a new set and injecting that to a new location. Does anybody know anything about this?

This happened to me one time before. I was away at a friends house and couldn't get the thing to connect. I didn't bring a backup set with me either. It took me about an hour to finally get it to work. Every since that day I always bring a backup with me, even if I have a full resevoir.
As to why it happened...I have no clue. Did you hit the site while you where in the shower? Or maybe the part dangeling from the pump got smushed?
Sorry I couldn't give you any real help.
