a noticeable supply increase when you are menstruating? I got my first period last month at 7 months pp and my supply was awesomely larger than usual. Right now I am on my period for the second time and i have a good supply again. Nothing in my eating habbits has changed and I am drinking the same amount of water. I have not picked up any new activities either so I know its not something i ate or did. Today I pumped two 5oz bottles at work in one session!!! I have only done that onc before but it was because i missed a nursing. that was maybe 2 hours ago and now again i am feeling full and have itchy boobs. I feel itch sometimes when i'm about to become engorged. 

I swear the only good thing that came from me menstruating again is this supply increase. I am super happy because that means I can save it up

A few days before my period I was the same no change at all. I wonder if maybe in a few months It will stop increasing when that time of the months comes but i sure hope it doesn't.

The thing I notice is that right before my period starts, I have a supply decrease and do nurses so much I think that when my supply bounces back I actually have a day of fullness because of the extra demand he put in.

No, but my boobs fill up like there's no tomorrow when I'm stressed out or nervous...

Hmm when I'm stressed I can not pump anything but maybe 1 oz.

Yep, I'm weird, stress is supposed to decrease supply, not for me though
