Supply Plateau?

I've struggled with supply issues from the very beginning with my preemie (my own lack of research along with "well meaning" drs and nurses didn't help the situation). I've read every article I can find and for the last 1.5 mos I've been pumping and nursing, taking fenugreek and blessed thistle, and drinking mother's milk tea, but I can't ever seem to get more than 1 ounce at a time. (A significant increase from the 5 mL I used to get, but no where near enough to EBF my 3 month old). It just seems weird, with the "supply and demand" principle and all. Anyone else have this problem?
