Big Drop In Pumping Output! HELP!

DD is 10 months old. We've been EBF til 6 months and then a little solids since then.
I work part time 3 nights per week and am away from home for about 5 hours each night. I pump once during my hours away and I've always gotten 2.5-3 ounces each time. This allows me to pretty much keep up with her one bottle (3 ounces) that she gets while I'm gone.
Last night at work I only was able to pump 1.5 ounces. I'm a little panicked! I can't get much pumping at home since she's always feeding, so I really need to get the milk at work.
I'm on my period (towards the end) so I'm not pregnant, not on any medications or BC, our routines haven't dramatically changed.
I know 1.5 ounces is still within a "normal" range for the average mom... but for 6 months I've consistently pumped 2.5-3 ounces... why the sudden drop?
I'm using a pump in style, and I recently replaced the membranes. I'm considering replacing the tubing to see if it helps but I cant find them anywhere. I checked Target and Babies R Us.
Any idea what could be causing this
