I know it's not a huge deal, and possibly/probably a fluke, but I've pumped over 12 ounces so far today! I ususally pump 3x/day. I pumped a bit over 7 in the first one and 5 in the second.

Either Viv didn't eat as much this morning or I just had a lot of milk, as I was still pretty full AFTER feeding her this morning. OR the Fenugreek is finally working. (I upped it from 2 caps to 3 at a time).

just wanted to say Yea Me.

the last session was around 3.5. so, I got almost 16oz total today! thank god, as I usally give the sitter 15oz! I just have to make sure I pump tonight, as I haven't but any milk in the freezer in a while. Matter of fact, i've been taking OUT of my freezer stash lately.

it appears to have been a fluke. I haven' tbeen able to pump as much as I did on Monday. i'm pumping in the evening too, but overall totals haven't looked like they did on Monday.

And to top it off, I've been feeling sick-ish, so I can't help but wonder if that's affecting my supply. Who knows - maybe Viv just didn't eat as much Monday morning and that gave me a great start at my 1st pumping session...

I am stopping the fenugreek for right now. I don't know/think it's working like I expect it to. And not enough to warrant me to keep using it. If I see an obvious drop, I'll start it again.

Sorry you're not feeling great ... that could definitely slow things down. Before you drop the fenugreek, have you started to smell like maple syrup? I've heard people say that unless you are, you're not taking enough.

I have done fenugreek a while ago, and it seemed to work well. After taking it for 1-2 days, I reeked of maple syrup. lol this last time, I was taking it and taking it and taking it, and i wouldn't smell like syrup. I can smell a hint every once in a while, but not like before. The first go round, I would take 2 caps 3-4 times a day for 2-3 days. This time, I was taking 3 caps 3, 4, 5x a day for several days... I wrote a post a while ago asking if someone can build a resistance to fenugreek, but no one really had any advise other to take more. (can't remember if it was this board, the breasfeeding board, or another..)

i will just keep doing what I'm doing. that's all I can do, right? (I haven't done the oatmeal cookies yet. Just been too busy and keep forgetting to get the recipe to get the ingredients to bake them...)

I snack on granola all day. It helps I think. Barely naked is a great brand.
