    The hospital food that was on offer was baked spuds for lunch. Forget whether I had anything for breakfast. I wasn't really interested in food until I had an epidural and then I had a small spud. Few hours later it came back up however. I think I would still eat something if I felt like it however, as vomiting up nothing is sometimes worse than having something to bring up and feel better. I had an induction though and I'm sure that contributed greatly to the vomiting (doubt the epidural would have helped in that regard either).

    Nothing, food didn't cross my mind at all. In early labour with both boys I had a cup of tea.

    I craved cold water & drank a lot during labour.

    Once both boys arrived I was STARVING! I ate both mine & DHs dinners and then maccas nuggets after DS1 was born and had 3x toast, then bacon & eggs after DS2.

    My labour was about 30 hours all up - from 5am one morning to 3pm the next day. I ate normally the first day while at home. I took snakes, muesli bars, nuts and powerade to the hospital. I know that I ate some snakes but don't remember about the rest. Didn't have breakfast but the hospital brought a sandwich for lunch. The midwife advised not to eat too much so I just had half the sandwich. I don't remember being hungry after but dinner was served at about 5pm. Definitely take snacks for the rest of the time though!

    I tried to eat but kept throwing whatever I ate up. I had packed Muesli bars, snakes and poweraid, my hubby ended up eating all the snakes.
