Pumping?

Hi! I have been only breastfeeding my 5 week old. I recently started pumping to build a supply because my husband and I will be gone for a day next month and possibly 4 days in March. What is the best way to build up a supply? She breastfeeds about every 2-3 hours and afterwards I will pump the other breast. She only feeds on one breast. However, I can't even get announce out after pumping for 5 minutes. Is this normal?? Should I pump longer? Thing I worry about is, if I pump longer will she still get enough on the next feeding?? Please help!
