Due to preeclampsia, I was induced almost 4 weeks ago when the baby was only 34 weeks. Everything was so sudden. I had complications and needed blood transfusions, my blood pressure was going crazy - everything was a mess. I didn't even see the baby for a day. I started pumping at the hospital two days after he was born and then after about a week of pumping 6 to 8 times a day I was getting a total of about two ounces of milk, which we would bring to him in the NICU.
Now he's been home for two weeks and I'm still not getting any more than that. My breasts are the same size as they were before I even got pregnant, I have no sensation of them filling up or letting down. The only way I can even tell that I'm making milk at all is when I can see it in the pump. I've been trying to stimulate more production, so I'm trying to nurse every time he's hungry, but I don't think he's getting anything. He then drinks a full bottle of formula afterwards, and when he's really hungry he refuses to nurse altogether. I'm taking Fenugreek. I really don't know what else to do.
I asked my doctor about it and she said that if it has been this long and nothing has happened that it probably isn't going to. I just feel terrible. I left a message with the lactation center at the hospital but based on past experience I don't think that they are going to be helpful either. I don't know what else to do. I feel terrible. Is there anything I can do?
