It's been 8 days since I started breast pumping in my goal to induce lactation. I'm sad to say that so far I've had very poor results. I get MAYBE a drop out of righty if I'm lucky. Lefty is being very uncooperative and producing nothing. Sometimes I get nothing out of both. I've upped my domperidone dosage to 100 mg per day. 30 mg twice per day and 20 mg twice per day. This is up from 80 mg per day. I'm pumping about 5-6 times per day which seems to be all that I can manage at this point. (The suggested time is 8 times per day, but I honestly don't know how anyone with a job can manage that.)
I'm trying not to let these results get me down.
On a completely unrelated and much happier note, N and I went to Milford, PA this weekend to enjoy a little mini-babymoon in honor of Labor Day weekend. We went tubing down the Delaware River, hiking with our dogs, ate lots of delicious food and generally had a great time. (I know it doesn't sound like an exotic place to go for a babymoon, but relaxing down the Delaware was definitely a treat. And I am not taking days off prior to the baby coming so that I can use all those PTO days for my maternity leave. The goal is staying out of work for 4 months!)
Anyways, here'a pic of our relaxing weekend.
