Re: Food suggestions during labor

Was looking around for something like this. They wouldn't let me eat anything b/c I'm a VBAC... I was told to come in with an empty stomach and was in labor for 21hrs... I was so exhausted I couldn't function, it was awful. Basically I'm looking for snacks DH can bring 'for himself' lol. It actually really pisses me off that they don;t want me to eat b/c they assume I'll end up with another section... I have a slight hope it'll be better this time since I've proven myself but we'll see.

They did let me drink recharge (like gatorade). I was on the toilet most the time too, lol

Mmm... smoothies would be easy to sneak sips of!
