So I pumped for the first time today and was surprised by how little I got
I know it's common but what I'm wondering is do you find that there is a prime time of day that produces more

Morning time. Also if you pump one side while you're nursing on the other.

Morning, while baby is on the other breast will have the best results!  :)

Morning.  The first feeding.  And I agree.  Pumping WHILE nursing will get you more.  How much did you get?  The normal amount is between .5 and 2 oz.  Total, for both sides.

first thing in the morning.  How old is your baby?

I got more by hand expressing after a hot shower than with a pump

Two weeks tomorrow
So I guess I shouldn't expect much
I know my supply is good though

I wouldn't be pumping at all at 2 weeks.  Let your supply get established and regulated a little bit before you throw pumping in the mix.  Are you returning to work or something?  When?

No I just received the pump so I was just testing it out
When does your milk tend to regulate

Right around the 6th week or so.  Sometimes sooner if you have already BF a child.
