    Default at work, pumped: no milk from one?

    Okay ladies....this has never happened to me.
    I'm at work...been back since Jan. I pump regularly while at work for LO at home....today my first session yeilded NO MILK from one breast - this has never happened before. ??? any ideas?
    everything feels fine, no engorgement, no pian (I have had mastitis before so I know pain!)

    I am getting ready to go for my second session....hopefully I will do better.

    any ideas as to why today I have an empty side?

    the only time something like that ever happened to me was when a seal wasn't tight somewhere along the way, either the Breastsheild to boob, the membrane to valve, the pump tube to horn, kwim?

    it also happened when I hadn't pumped in a while b/c of pump weaning and my nipple wasn't positioned correctly around the horn

    I had a membrane that wasn't in just right. I only realized what was up when it was the other boob which was "empty" the next time I went to pump.
