    I'm sharing the pumping room at work now. SHe's very nice, but it was lovely having it all to myself. Waiting to check in 10 minutes to see if it is free.

    Noelle, what sort of work do you do?

    I have never had to pump at work thankfully because I am terrible at getting that blasted thing to work, but everyone in the hospital biz seems to have babies at the same time, I bet those rooms get PACKED!

    I do like the pamphlet and kellymom says to do, and can't get more than an ounce out combined.

    I'm a marketing analyst, basically I look at numbers and data an try to make sense of it from a marketing perspective.

    I'm lucky with the pumping, but I've been doing it several times a day since she was born. I am usually able to pump 20- 30 ounces a day. I feel like a cow though, lol

    I had more luck with the hand me down (had been through three kids) el-cheapo pump than I do with the Ameda Purely Yours, if I hadn't gotten through insurance I would return it.

    My pump looks like it has been in a war zone. Its the same one I used for DS and I'm thankful it still works. I bought it off EBay never used, but opened so they couldn't return it. Even though it was still $200, it has saved me $1000s if I had to use formula from month 3 - 12 when I would have been back at work.

    What else is new ladies? ANything fun?

    I'm wanting to decorate for christmas now!! I'l probably end up doing it next week

    IMHO the Ameda Purely Yours pump totally sucks...er well doesn't suck! Basically, it's a piece of junk! I have a Medela Pump In Style that I purchased before going back to work after DS1 was born. I used it to pump at work for the first year with both boys. I wanted to get a new pump this time b/c I was worried about my old one holding out. My insurance offered it so I got one that way and the Purely Yours it what they sent. That's the only option; you don't get to choose. I used it for about 6 weeks. It did ok at first but it wasn't long before I had to start adjusting the cord while I pumped to get the suction to stay strong. Like if I pop the cap off where it attaches to the flange and put it back on the suction would get better for a bit or unplug the tube from the pump and replug it same deal. Anyway it got to where I had to constantly do this or there was basically no suction. So I pulled out my Medela and luckily the tubes from the Ameda fit on it and I've been using my PIS with the Ameda pump kit. My 5 yr old Medela works way better than the Ameda ever did. At least I got a pump kit out of it. That saved me 50 bucks to not have to replace the Medela tubes and flanges.

    I hate pumping. Kudos to you ladies!

    We were supposed to get possession of our new house tomorrow! But the idiot sellers took too long to submit the Real Property Report and it wont be back from the bank in time. Ridiculous. After some finagling we are going to get Tenancy at Will, meaning we get to have access to the property as tenants until the deal closes. Because we have a bunch of furniture being delivered on Saturday, we couldn't wait and push possession back. Ugh. Like this had to be more stressful than it already was.

    I agree on the Medela PIS, they are awesome. I didn't mind the hospital one either, I think it was Ameda. I don't mind pumping, especially at work. It gives me a few 15-20 minute breaks to relax (sometimes I even take a short cat nap). Pumping at home is more difficult with the kiddos, but I just try to time it on down times.

    Sandra - that's so disappointing about your house! I'm glad you were able to work it out so you can get your new furniture there.

    I'm almost unpacked!! I feel like the last few boxes are taking too long to do, but life has started back up...cooking, cleaning, laundry, work, kiddos and I'm lucky if I get to 1/2 of a box a day. Most of the essential are unpacked, except for my birth control! No DTD until I find those!
