Not a good spot for my Pod

“I will not put my pod underneath my bra right above my belly button again!” I made that statement 3 weeks ago.
I can’t believe I put my Pod in the same spot, what was I thinking? It Is very uncomfortable.
When I sit down it feels like something is pinching my skin over and over again! I have to sleep on my right side, if I sleep on my left side I wake up in the wee hours of the night because of the stupid pinch!

I thought about changing the site before my 3 days are up– these pods are too expensive (I am blessed to not have to pay a copay) I’m too cheap to change my Pod a day early, I may need one for an emergency. 
I am going to have to suck it up; I learned my lesson the second time around.
I think I am going to try placing my pod on my thigh. I’ve heard a few success stories from Amy T at Diabetesmine and a few OmniPod users at TuDiabetes. I’ll let you know how it goes.
