I have days like that where I'll pump half of what I usually do...I freak out, post on every board about how I'm dryin' up...and then the next day I'm fine. Guess my boobs are capable of having "bad days" like I am! LOL Hopefully this is your case. Have you pumped yet today...

I definitely have good days and bad days. Probably the worst thing you can do is freak out and stress. I have noticed that the beginning of the month for me is my lower output week for whatever reason. I just attribute it to natural hormone cycling and know that the next week I'll be up again. And oddly enough, every Monday I go into work wondering if I still have milk!? It's like the week of pumping reminds me that I still have some and is reassuring!

I hope you're able to relax and things pick up! Good luck.

well AF showed up last night, I am hoping this is what it is..I try not to stress but it was dishartening to have less than half output, today I'm at 1oz so far and I've only pumped once so we'll see still freakin out a little though

I bet your period is the biggest culprit then.
