Well I thought I'd come in with an update, and a question or two.
I never managed to make much more milk (maybe a bit hard to say). My son will be 5 months in 2 days. He is doing well, drinking lots of formula via an SNS. Any breastmilk he is getting is a very small amount. I am still sad about it but kind of in a groove.
For a while I rationalised that I just "regulated" before the tongue tie was cut and that's why I never made much milk. Last couple of days I was thinking maybe I'd try renting the pump again and see if now, when things are more relaxed than in those early weeks and me and the baby are getting lots of sleep if I can't get some more milk going.
But while I was googling around about that I thought about the thing I dread - IGT...
I always had weird shaped breasts, really big areolae, small flattish nipples, nipples point downward and slightly inward, breasts have always been extremely droopy even as a teenager - dad called them "orange in a sock" breasts :/ There's not a big gap between them, like I wouldn't say 1.5inches at all, they mostly seem to begin at the same point of the chest, but they are quite "flat" in the sense that at the base they're not very dense at all, feel very soft. They've always been big, but also weird like I described. I never thought I had hormonal problems, my periods have always been insanely regular and pretty much textbook in length (give or take one or two days), but the boobs, they're suspicious.
