    Once I had been admitted to hospital, I had a full dinner and breakfast and timed the birth perfectly because lunch arrived about 5 minutes after. I was so hungry the moment dd came out, it was like I had not eaten for a week lol.

    My contractions started about 9:30pm so I didn't have anything to eat until just after she was born at 7:30..... Just in time for breakfast!!! I wasn't very hungry then as I think I was in shock, but sent DH out to get a piece of cheesecake at about 11am.

    It was nice to eat without getting heartburn too.

    Do you mean 15min from pain to baby or for pushing? Why were you already in triage if you werent in labour?

    With my first i had a few biscuits in early stages (was a 22hr labour) and threw it all up later.

    With my second i was in silent labour so had breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks throughout the day (didnt think it was real labour). Then i had nothing after the 'pain' hit, bub was born 3hrs later. (was in silent labour for 12hrs, 'painful' labour for three)

    From I think I am in labor to baby being here. I was in triage because We drove to the hospital we lived 5 minutes away and I went to the ER and told them I was in labor and they needed to get me in right away lol they took me to ER triage and I told them I needed to go now no time or they were going to have a baby there they got me up to labor and delivery and he was out in no time.

    No time to eat for me with either child. Honestly it was the last thing on my mind.

    With ds1 I had him in the very early hours and barely touched breakfast. Ds2 arrived well after dinner time and same with him, I was still to zonked to eat the next day.

    I do know people that have smacked during labour, one of these everyone's different situations
