I went through my old posts in this group, i wanted to see when i started taking my thyroid and what happened. just as i suspected, right after i started taking my thyroid meds things went from bad to worse.

before i started taking them i was pumping 2oz every 2 hours... thats pretty good! then as i was reading on, after i started taking them, it started to gradually decline to an ounce, half ounce....less. and i was describing baby as constantly  hungry (of course he did have a tongue tie as well however.) 

well then. how long do you think it might take to get my milk supply up?? im taking the dom, his latch figured it, we are laying skin to skin right now and hes kinda lazily eating. i hope it doesnt take too long.

YAY! 3 great diapers so far today! my milk is letting down great! the domperidone is working. :) i pumped an ounce and a half this morning.

also, I stepped on the scale myself, i lost 5 pounds this week since they upped those meds - no wonder he lost weight. stupid docs. my "hypothyroid symptoms" have also disappeared since I have cut out gluten. I dont think i was even hypothyroid ever, i think it was just gluten messing with me.  and rhythmm gained 2oz!!!!

I'm on day 2 of dom and it seems to be going better today.  It's 9:30 pm and we haven't had a screaming hunger fit, she pooped again after yesterday, and I pumped 2 oz after feeding her vs nothing.

Doesnt shock me at all, those meds were and are a big issue.  Do what you can and I think you should see a difference in a matter of days
