    Yes. Funny thing is, I only realized LAST WEEK that it comes out of the bag. But it's still pretty heavy. Weighs more than my milk! It's the heaviness that annoys me. Well, and between that and the milk cooler, it's all pretty bulky.

    So I'm still having the same issue. Pumping more, getting less. Yesterday I pumped 5 times and got 10 ounces. A couple days ago I stopped block nursing completely and if I still had OS it would have become apparent by now.

    What is typical of supply when your period comes back? Does it drop then go back up once your period starts? Does it drop weeks beforehand? My supply has been dropping for 2 weeks now and even stopping block nursing hasn't helped my pump output.

    I took a preg test last week, was negative, but maybe I should try again? Last week wasn't quite 2 weeks after the last time we had sex.

    Should I look at actual pump issues? I just replaced the membranes.

    Thanks ladies!

    That's weird. I would definitely check again for pregnancy in a week or so, particularly if you are cycling.

    And I'd probably try a different pump, like rent a hospital grade. Or talk to your manufacturer. There's something going on.

    When you are home on weekends and nursing, is your baby satisfied?
