Re: [IP] day 3, love it!!

Hi Barb:
 I have noticed that when I wear my tight jeans and sit, the tubing can get
blocked if it is down my leg and gets caught in a crease.Sometimes the jeans
don't even have to be that tight! What I do is make sure that the tubing is
tucked in my undies around my stomach. The snug material doesn't seem to block
it, just getting bent in a crease.

 By the way, I love the 43 inch tubing because it lets me place the pump on the
counter in the bathroom and move around a (very little) bit when I have nothing
to clip the pump to. You have to remember it though, or it can go flying.

I have been reading everyone's post's for sometime now, waiting to get
my pump and get started. I got it thursday, and started saline Friday.
Saturday I began using insulin. I am so happy! 35 years of MDI, and I
finally did it. Reading all your stories helped me make the move. I have
a silly question. I tuck my 43" tubing into my pants, and they are a
little tight. Will this hurt the delivery or the tubing? Thanks!
