I have been pumping for 5 months now and I have noticed that my milk supply has gone down. I don't pump enough for a feeding. Is this normal?

Yes, that is normal.  There comes a time where your body can not keep up with regards to pumping.  Pumping is really one of the most difficult things you can do.  There are things you can do to try to increase your supply, but after a while even those won't be enough.  I've read that around 8-9 months your body just can't keep up with the pump.  Have you checked out www.kellymom.com ?
