Hi everyone,
Just wanted to introduce myself and let you know where I am with the protocol. I was on the regular protocol for 19 weeks (Necon 1/35 for most of that time, Diane 35 for the final 26 days). That was not by design, but we thought we had a baby coming this summer and so I hurried things along with the Diane and started pumping a few weeks earlier than planned. Didn't work out with baby, but pumping was already going well so I'm staying with it.
I got drops right away and have had a steady increase ever since. I'm taking Domperidone, fenugreek, blessed thistle, and eating my oatmeal. I started out pumping 10 or more times a day for a few days then 8 times a day for about 6 weeks. Now I'm pumping 6 times a day, but that includes once at night since I get too full if I try to sleep through the night. I've been pumping for a total of almost 8 weeks and I am getting up to 15 ounces a day! I'm fortunate to have a friend who is letting me have some freezer space! Anyway, nothing definite on a baby yet, but I will be glad to be attached to a baby instead of a pump, hopefully sooner rather than later.
Thanks for listening,

Thanks for your encouragement. I'm so focused on the daily aspects of this that it's good to back up sometimes and realize how amazing it is to have this much milk.
Thanks for the support.
