Can you afford to go get a hand pump from walmart? 

Medelas hand pump is like $40 I think and I love mine for those times..
can you put baby on the breast at all? cause if you can that will help...

can you hand express? try to do that as often as you can! That will help.

Im more worried about how full your breasts are gonna be... :( ow.


when you get back home just pump like 3 extra times than normal maybe?

like if you pump 6 times in a day pump 9?

When you get back, pump every 2 to 3 hours. Every 4 hours overnight. Do this for 15 minutes at a time. Whatever you do, don't skip ANY pumpings. You will need to keep up this schedule. You might want to throw some herbs in as well to increase your production. A good one is Breastea from http://www.breastea.com
