please tell me i'm not the only person who freaks out when they don't pump as much as they think they should.
i'm starting back to work full time this week. i pump 3x a day. i've come to terms with the fact that i'm just not going to pump as much at the end of the day as i do in the morning. usually i get about 3-4 oz from each side during the first session and then the other sessions i get about half as much as i got in the previous one. so i go home with between 10 and 14 oz. ds is taking around 12 when i'm away, so i think i do pretty good. (he is 3 mo old)
i know there's a lot of factors that affect supply and having a 10 oz day today doesn't mean i won't have a 14 oz day tomorrow. plus i have plenty of milk in the freezer to cover low days, but i still worry.
its amazing how sometimes i feel so full and sometimes so empty. will i ever be able to get over the anxiety that theres not going to be enough milk??
