Last Monday we left town for a funeral and returned on Tuesday. So, with the car ride and all, we were off our normal eating and sleeping routine. Then on Wednesday I had an appointment to confirm the placement of my Mirena IUD. Turns out it was outside my uterus so my doctor had me report to the ER that night for a CAT Scan and then they admitted me and I had surgery on Thursday.
After the funeral trip, I had very little expressed milk stored. LO had last nursed at 6 pm on Wednesday (He normally sleeps from 7 pm - midnight). DH brought him to me when he got home from work so I could nurse and I wasn't able to get to the hospital pumps (That I had to beg for!) until 4:30 am Thursday. I was able to express enough milk for LO to have after my surgery.
Friday, he slept all day and I figured with the odd week we'd had, it wasn't unusual. He has continued to have plenty of wet diapers and his normal number of dirty ones. However, I was offered a PT job on Friday and now, 2 days later, I still cannot pump more than 4 oz. total. I was getting 5 oz off each breast.
I was precribed Percocet and have only taken 3 doses. My doc assured us that it would have no affect on BF. Has my supply decreased? Should I be overly concerned? Should I start drinking Mother's Milk or something to built my supply back up? I'm not sure when I will actually start the job, but I want to have plenty of milk on hand.
