Hi gals, how do you know when your breasts are empty when pumping?

You should notice when you are going to pump that your breasts are either hard (engorged--if it has been a long time, like really hard won't jiggle if you walked) or just firm, which is what they mostly would be if you are on a regular schedule.

A nurse at the hospital explained it to me in this way, and I think it's a good test.
