I had a still born a little while ago and have been pumping and donating the milk. Suddenly the last two days (though I am pumping the same amount) my supply seems less. I may or may not be pregnant (we were not preventing not trying) and wondered if that has anything to do with the drop in supply

I second pokey.
I have breastfed through 3 pregnancies and with all 3 when I was starting to ovulate again but didnt really know I was seeing fussiness in the nursling that related to a dip in supply. And once I conceived it slowly dwindled more and more. I can't hand express anything now at almost 17 weeks but my youngest still nurses frequently for comfort.
I am sorry for your loss! I had a stillborn at 37 weeks in 2006 and had such a hard time when my milk came in :( I did not have a pump and did not think to donate as you are. I think what you are doing is great! I wish you the best!

Well I ovulated a little over a week ago and I just noticed it dip yesterday/ 2 days ago. Thank you for the condolences
aww i am so sorry for your loss mamma and yes pregnancy can cause a dip in your milk supply and plus when your period comes back in can cause a dip too
