From the day I went back to work, I've settled to breastfeeding my son and pumping for breast milk before and after shift but lately I noticed that my milk supply has lessened. I found out that not breastfeeding continously causes the supply of milk to decrease thus I decided to bring my handy breast pump to work. My first day was a disappointment. Barely 2 ounces of milk was expressed. My second day was better with 4 ounces. Hopefully, it'll progress in a matter of days. Hopefully, too, management heeds our request to have a mother's lounge. It's kinda disconcerting to pump in the disabled bathroom :(

it' s been 2 weeks since I went back to work and sadly, it seems that I've lost it. I've lost the drive to work and to excel. I've lost the wanting to win the rat race. I've simply settled to wanting to be an at-home-mother. Maybe I'm just missing my baby..maybe I just got used to staying at me on why I'm feeling like this...maybe I'll find my rhythm in next few weeks..maybe....just maybe
