    That is soooo exciting! Congrats!!! :D
    My one huge tip would be to give the pump a fair chance. It can get really frustrating when you first start pumping, and trying to find out the right basals, insulin to carb ratios, etc. Your numbers can be up and down a lot in the begining, but trust me, it does get better!
    But, while you're waiting to start pumping insulin, you can still wear it so you get use to having it on, you can start trying infusion sets to find out which ones you like, etc.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask any of us!!
    Good luck!! :)
