Feeling "Deflated" and Empty

I had a sudden drop off last month, but corrected it with one day of 8 pumps.
I thought I was safe (at 6+ months) to drop the MOTN pump and adjust my times to evenly space out 5 pumps, but since I've done that my supply has plummeted. I feel empty every time I sit down to pump. It almost feels like I could stop pumping and I wouldn't become engorged/clogged at all. It feels like there's no milk. I dont' have that same rush of fullness that I would get when sitting down to pump.
I was getting 10-12 every session, now I'm getting 5-7. Huge difference when trying to feed twins! I immediately tried adding back a pump and all the usual things (water, oatmeal, fenugreek, even domperidone) to no avail.
Anyone else bounce back from something like this?
