did not produce one single drop

(Tuscumbia, al)

my breasts did not produce one single drop. Never grew at all during pregnancy. All my other friends leaked and grew. A lot. One girl went from an a to almost a double d. I tried so hard.

Everybody complained about leaking. But it was all i wanted. The doctor shrugged it off. It happens. Too bad so sad. We're trying to conceive for our second baby. Maybe luck Will come my way:(

I feel you honey. I had very low milk supply. My son lost weight when I just breast fed and I had to give formula. Like you, I am hoping for better success with baby two.

A book "The Breastfeeding Mothers Guide To Making More Milk" (page 137) discusses a woman who had low milk supply after first child and was diagnosed with luteal phase defect after difficulty trying to conceive second child. Second time she was given natural progesterone suppositories from ovulation until 12 weeks into preganancy and her milk came in fully second time.

It also discusses (page 231)another woman who like you had no breast change in first pregnancy. She took progesterone supplements for first 12 weeks but her breasts reverted back once hormone was stopped. Second baby she took oral and injected progesterone until 8 months then slowly weaned off and her milk came in well.

I have done lots of research on this topic (after all my trouble!). If you have any questions, please e-mail me [email protected] and hopfully we will both be able to breastfeed 2nd time round!

Jodie you are the first woman I have come across who is in the exact same position as me! I never produced a single drop of breast milk with either of my children. They Dr was no help, just saying these things happen, formula is there for a reason. I felt like rubbish and he didn't help at all. I hope you have better luck next time xx
