I actually did not have any expectation about pumping. I know it was something that I needed to do no matter what.

Harder, but only because I can't quite get the schedule down. The physical pumping is no biggie.

Harder. I didn't plan to pump at all until returning to work, let alone EPing now. It is what it is though. It's not so bad now. I'm used to it.

I was afraid of pumping! But it's been pretty easy so far!

I find physically pumping fairly straightforward, although there was a period where it was killing my nipples.

Obsessing over every single drop though, now that is hard!

I didn't have any expectations going into it. I took things one step at a time. I knew if BF was a success, then I would need to pump at work.

Hard. I still think it is. I could have just given up and given him formula since I'm doing it on the side anyway. But I still feel guilty and REFUSE to give up. He's five months tomorrow so I am happy about this... I am soon on my 6 month milestone!!! Yay!!!
