    it disn't happen with me but I think it's actually normal. many times I read about how Monday's output is so much greater than Fridays. I think the theory is that baby has been stimulating production all weekend and by the end of the week boobs are used to a regular pumping schedule.

    Yep, all the time when I was pumping. Made me CRAZY! LOL Seemed like output was pretty good Monday, Tuesday... but by Friday, it was noticably less. Never could quite figure out why or how to fix it.

    Thanks Jenna. With K I had OS so didn't notice any change at all. The things the second child/pregnancy teaches you.

    I have the exact opposite problem. Mondays are a low output day for me, and by Friday I'm usually back to normal.

    Me, too. I finally instituted "shirtless Wednesdays" - I would do nothing but hold/nurse DS & DH would do dinner, etc. It helped a lot, though whether it was the skin-to-skin or the relaxing IDK.

    Yeah, Momma...It does happen to me too - and on Friday's I ALWAYS have to pee like a racehorse on the horiffic ride home from work because I drink some much dang water thinking I can fix the problem...., and of course, it doesn't work...
    But, sounds totally normal -

    I was like that with Nora, but it's the opposite for me this time. I start the week slow and by friday I'm filling up the bottles.
