At least I hope it's AF....and I hope it's temporary.

Yes, AF can cause dips in your milk supply.

Ditto PP - it's usually temporary, and some women also see a little dip at ovulation too. I agree w/ hydration and considering fenugreek, or just pumping a little longer or adding in a home session if needed. Babies are good at adjusting, so the extra sessions may be her reaction to a slightly lower production - as long as she's allowed to feed on demand, she'll get what she needs overall.
