I had my appointment this morning and it was really overwhelming, but awesome! I'm so excited to be pumping and i can't wait for lunch when I actually don't have to do a shot :)

Still feels a little weird with in my pocket and I have to figure out where to put it and stuff... but overall i'm happy! :)

Congrats. It may take a few days to figure out where to put it, but it will work out great. You using the holster or belt clip?

I use the leather holster and clip it to my pants. Ihave never put it in my pocket I feel as though it would get pulled out because the wire is hanging out. Which pump did you choose. If you have a minimed they have a store on their website www.minimed.com where you can get different pump packs or holsters for your bra, leg or thigh as well. If you have any questions you know where to find me!

thank guys :)

I have the MM Paradigm 522 (purple)

for now it's just in my pocket til I figure something out. I will play around with the belt clip or holster later today or tomorrow.

As far as the tubing, the MM rep just told me to push it in my pocket and not to worry about it.

Lunch was the most exciting! I felt more free not having to take a shot! :)

I'm going home this weekend to visit my parents so I'll talk to my mom about possilbiy buying different holders and stuff.

Thanks for the advice!

yay, you got your pump welcome to the world of pumping. :D if you really wanted to, you could put your tubing under the elastic of your underwear so that you don't have a huge problem when it falls out of your pocket. i do that more than anything especially when i have my sight on my thighs.

that's a great idea! thanks :)

it already feels apart of me... so exciting.

can't wait until 10 when I don't have to do a Lantus shot!

Melissa,

I wish I'd had a chance to write sooner- but mostly I just wanted to say:

WoooooooooHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! YAY!!!!

Congratulations and I am glad it is going well for you.  As you find different things that work for carrying it (and using it) please make sure you keep us up to date!

Cheers!
