I pumped with my first journey and had no intention of accepting compensation for it, especially after I had to be delivered at 29.3 weeks because of pre-e. The guys ended up leaving me a $500 check one day when they came by to pick up what little milk I was able to pump...which believe me, was very little (thanks to implants and piercings). I opened the card after they left with the check inside, and burst into tears when I saw it. I sent the check back to them once they reached Houston. So Nada for me.
