When they have growth spurt it can take your body a few days to catch up. Maybe you are just catching up to her.
Pumping and working is really tough. I know I couldn't pump every 2-3 hours at work. Every time I nursed him I would pump right after he was done. I would also let the pump run for a few minutes after I stopped getting any milk. That sends your body a signal to make more milk. I basically got into the habit of pumping as much as I could at home since I knew I couldn't keep up at work. My son was EBF until about 8 months and then we supplemented with 1 formula bottle a day.
