Hi girls,  I have been e pumping for my twins for a year.  I'm in the process of dropping my first awake pump (noonish), taking me down to 5 a day, but my body still has not adjusted to it yet.  this morning the alarm went off like it does every day and I wandered down to the pump and instead of pumping 8-10 oz  I barely did 4oz.  So now just for the day I'm considering putting the 6th back in just so I dont have to defrost.  I know in the end defrosting is the goal, however I feel so defined by how much milk I make.  sometimes I feel like I have a secret superpower.   know that the end goal is not to make any it just feels idk so final.  I guess it is final and also means my babies are getting older :smileysad:

I understand. I have an over supply, and it's let me fill my freezer, a lot of which I have donated. I could probably stand to pump less, but I don't know how to be okay with making less milk.
