    I didn't eat anything, it was the last thing on my mind and I certainly didn't have an appetite, though I tried to stay hydrated for stamina etc, so I tried to drink lot's of water and just sipped it.

    For those of you who didn't eat in case you had to have a c-section, I had to have an emergency c-section under general anesthetic but I still ate, did your midwife / OB tell you not to? What happens if you do eat? Sorry to hijack the thread OP.

    I think it can cause vomiting as a reaction and because you are on your back, risk of choking

    I didn't feel like eating. I had water and ice.

    I don't remember what I ate during my first labour, but I did eat half the breakfast and lunch that the hospital provided, what ever that was. LOL.
    I didn't eat anything during my second labour, just drank OJ/water.

    I stayed at home for the first 24hrs so I ate some sandwiches and Gatorade. My hospital wouldn't let you eat either, so they recommend saying home as long as possible.
    Everything I had eaten came back up anyway, almost 1 year later I still can't look at Gatorade!

    I had a very long labour and ate normally though the first two days, I kept thinking I probably shouldn't eat heavy food, but my body said carb me up, so I ate pasta etc I also slammed down loads of red poweraid even walked to the servo at night to get more on my own cos I needed it and I knew if I got df to go he'd fuss around for hours before he'd actually leave so I just went. (we had a few rounds of "I'll go in a minute" *wait* "I'll just get it myself" "no ill go I'll just finish this" *wait* "I'm going bye!" cos seriously we played that game throughout my pregnancy. It was like he didn't want to go but he didn't want to be the guy who didn't go.

    Anyhow I stopped eating though about 12 hours before she was born.
