Re: Am I doing ok?
I was able to increase my pumping output by about 50% by mastering breast compressions. Are you doing that? Don't rely on the pump to do all the work. When the flow begins to slow, start squeezing your breast, in various positions, and watch for any increase in flow. When you see an increase in flow, keep compressing that area until it empties. And I don't mean gently squeezing, sometimes I could really bare down (not until painful, though) on a certain area and let loose a large amount of milk that the pump alone wouldn't have extracted. Practicing will make this go more quickly each time you pump.
Keep at it, you are doing great.
