    Pumpkin risotto. The mids told me to eat something as I hadn't eaten much all day during pre labour. They said I needed energy. DD2 was born 2.5 hrs later
    DD1- nothing, from memory!

    Nothing. I tried eating a shape and it made me sick. Good thing it was fast so I ate after.

    I had a cheeseburger meal from Maccas! But the midwife told me to only eat half of it in case I needed a c-section. A couple hours later I was pushing bubs out and I had to stop to throw up, so if you do want to eat something make it something light!

    I ate nothing. Eating was the last thing on my mind. I would also have been to worried about it coming back up.

    Sandwiches provided by the hospital after my waters were broken and snakes, but once I was in active labour food was the last thing from my mind!

    I haven't had a csection but if you eat and then have a general it is extremely likely that you will vomit at some point. With generals they are worried about you vomiting while unconscious which could lead to asphyxiation. The anaesthetic causes muscle relaxation and stomach contents can easily come back up.

    I'm actually quite surprised that so many of you say you didn't want to eat! I always feel nauseous when i haven't had enough food but i'll keep in mind that i might feel unwell and stick to plain pasta and toast.
    Thanks guys!
