It's definitely doable! And as for pumping at work, you are legally entitled to breaks for pumping--not that those breaks have to be paid breaks, but you have to be allowed to pump. Just know that around 3 months, your hormones start to level out, and where you may have somewhat of an oversupply right now, you may not have that oversupply at 3 months, so a lot of moms who pump at work sort of have to work at keeping up the supply (by making sure to pump frequently enough, drink enough water, eat enough calories, possibly take supplements, etc.). But it's totally doable. I pumped at work for my first until she wsa 13 months old, and there were times it was tough, or where I couldn't pump enough to keep up with what she was drinking, but every bit of it was worth it.

I would definitely try to connect with a BF support group/La Lehce League in your area if you have one. And hopefully your DHwill eventually get on board. You're doing a great thing, so keep it up!
