dd nurses every 2 hours from @ 5am to 9pm. i have a class 2 nights a week and miss 3 feedings. I pump before i leave and right when i get home but i let down every 2 hours. is there something i can do to help my engorgement or will my body figure it out on its own?

Your body will figure it out. Make sure you're wearing pads!

 Go to the bathroom and hand express or pump there, even if it's just a little bit it will help and eventually yes your supply will adjust.

I'm always wearing pads otherwise i'd be soaking wet so I bring extras and change them on my breaks. Our breaks are only 10-15 minutes long and thats not enough time to get to my truck and pump and get back in time and I won't do it in the bathroom- they're just unhealthy IMO. As long as  it will adjust i'll suffer through it for a while. thanks ladies.

You could ask if theres an unused classroom or office you can use.  I personally would use the bathroom to relieve engorgement even if you don't want to use the milk beucase you feel its unsanitary.
