    Default Update!! and ?

    I am so a diffrent person now! I was so frustrated not able to get much milk out only a few drops. I was about ready to give up. We tryed the dom and I fell in love. When i started we only got a few drops with the dom just like i was getting with the herbs. I took the dom for 4 days and pumped every 2 hrs and didnt notice any changes. My poor breasts were so sore so i stoped. 2 days later I said to myself. I cant give up i have 2 boxes of this stuff and need to give it one more try so i pumped that morning and got more than a few drops. I said hey im doing pretty good. That day I got 1/4 teaspoon total all day. {Put it in the fridge for tomarrows} The next day in the am i pump and get 1/4 teaspoon right off the bat. I was excited, i gave it to alexis in a syringe with the day befores amount. It has been increasing like that all week. this weekend i didnt pump like i was suposta maybe 3 times a day. we were on vacation but i am now up to about 1/2 ounce at a time. I am hoping that by pumping reguallary this week i can get up at least a ounce at a time.
    I am so excited. I just wanted to share my sucess and to think i was going to give up.
    1/2 oz may not seem like a lot but when i started with a drop I feel like i am on top of the world.

    I couldnt have done it without you all!!!!
