I'm brand new to pumping, and I'll be changing my site for the first time tomorrow. The first site I chose, with the CDE was fine, except I felt like I had to be careful to keep the waist of skirts from riding up onto it while I sat. Do any of you ever put it on your abdomen below the beltline?
I'm also supposed to be getting a Dexcom delivered like any minute now. (It was supposed to be here already! *pout*) So, since I'll soon have two things stuck to my body that will help make exercising a little safer/easier, I'm wondering where good placement might be for them if I do yoga a lot. When I was into exercising before diagnosis, that was one of my favorite activities. I'm hoping I can get back into it now that I have tools that will help me catch dropping blood sugar before it gets bad. One tip I've run across is to make sure I try to not lean over in the direction of the site while pressing the adhesive part down, so it doesn't come off too easily as a result of stretching in the other direction. I'm wondering where may be a good spot without too much stretch in the first place? I'm also guessing that I'll need some aditional adhesive of some sort since this forst infusion site got a little loose around the edges from barely more than a day of normal daily movement. I have those clear IV dressing things that came with my pump or skin tac, the kind you cut a hole into for the plastic part to show through and that goes on with a paper "frame." I'm wondering if skintac might now be a better option, though. What's worked well for you?
