Hi, all!
I did a little experiment to see how my breasts are coming along on the protocol. I am currently on day 155 of the protocol, and I tried pumping with my PIS tonight. I pumped both breasts at the same time, for 20 minutes. I started on the minimum suction, but it didn't seem to be doing much so I turned it up a little, but not too much. I could see the drips running into the bottles, and after 20 minutes I had probably a 1/4 teaspoon total between both breasts!
This was my first time, ever, using a pump, so I am not sure if I had everything positioned right. But it seemed okay. I am sure that is something I will pick up with practice. I may try one more time, on Saturday morning, to see what happens. Otherwise, I will be waiting for December, or our next baby, to start pumping for real! Just wanted to share my progress.

Sounds great dawn, but leave your breasts alone now so the meds can do their job...I know it is tough to just sit and wait but it will be worth it in the end <img src="" alt="" />

Mom to Belle and Evan both who benefited from the protocol. And Xander the breastfeeding wonder!
