    Thanks everyone. I appreciate the replies and advice. Will keep at it and hopefully end up with enough to keep her out of SCN.

    Did you manage to collect the few drops? You are hand expressing right? Not using a pump?
    Keep at it. You will notice an increase as you get better at it and as you get closer to term. Also I have found that the amount of colostrum increases a fair bit if spontaneous labour is close. Keep in mind you can express in early labour (or anytime in labour) too. Good luck. X

    I was in your exact situation earlier this year. I wasn't able to express very much at all on my own but I was admitted into hospital 2 days before my caesarean to have steroid shots and whilst there the midwives managed to express so much, syringes full, I was amazed. Maybe see if the midwives can help you when you get to the hospital, even if they can get 1 or 2 syringes full it's all helps. Good luck!

    I did for the 3 weeks leading up to DS birth as he was coming 3wka early and my nipples are huge.
    I was getting 6ml a day and filling 2 3ml syringes that you can get from the chemist. We only used a small portion of the syringes though not all of them

    Yep, managed to collect the few drops even though they seem worthless. I did hand express after a hot shower and massaging my breasts. I am 37+3. Thanks for your advice
