Hi all! Has anyone used those popular belly bands before they were pregnant? I am thinking about getting one to help hold my pod and dexcom sensor on and wondered if anyone had any experience.
I've been wearing my pod and sensor on the lower part of my belly and the typical stuff I use to hold them on doesn't usually work there--too much bending and shifting and clothes in the way.
I used the ones from Motherhood Maternity and didn’t find them helpful in that way at all. Hiding half-zipped flies or making a CGM sensor less obvious, yes, but it wouldn’t have helped hold a sensor or site on.
I eventually started putting insulin sites on my lower back, sort of behind the “love handles.” Also on my upper butt sometimes, but I find those sometimes get ripped off when taking my pants off.
I had to use the back of my arms in the later stages of my pregnancy with my omnipod. I was amazed the amount of people who thought it was a stop smoking patch
