    You can't just pull the top down?

    I only can pump/nurse in shirts/blouses that I can pull up. I am looking forward to pump weaning because that does expand my work wardrobe but I must admit that I don't tend to wear skirts/dresses in the winter because I hate wearing hose/tights.

    I measure what I send to daycare for DS in the Avent bottles, but I just do a quick check on what I pumped with the bottles I pumped in. Though I guess I do measure what I put in the freezer bags by the bottles I pumped in... Oy, I wish companies would standardize the markings.

    Toddlerandtwins, I salute you for wearing dresses to work! I only started wearing skirts to work this past year. And that was mostly because 1) it was hot, and 2) my work pants didn't quite feel completely comfortable yet. The skirts I had were a bit more "forgiving". I do prefer skirts over shorts for running around in the summer, though. But once it gets cold, I want as much fabric encasing my lower body as possible.

    Mskalinin, You'll get there.

    Had to come in early today, so it is a 3-pump kind of day. I'm on #2.

    I wish! With all the straps I was afraid I would stretch them. After losing weight the last thing I want to do it stretch out my new clothes!
    Usually I take off my top only.
    Awkward was the word I was thinking of earlier when I posted. Thought about taking a photo and sending to DH, maybe that should be a topic in the R&S forum

    This is the first dress I've worn to work in over 3 years. I feel like my pregnancy/post pregnancy *fog* that I've been in since Oct'08 has lifted, I lost a lot of weight, and had to buy new clothes. Off-topic!

    My nipples hurt all night. It was weird. Kept waking me up because that is how much it hurt. No, no AF (but I am wondering if she will show up in the next week or so, for the first time in like 4 years)and no, I cannot be pregnant because it would be a miracle Maybe I was a little over exuberant with the suction.
