They can tell you you can't eat/drink but that don't mean you have to listen.. lol They say that cause if you need an emergancy Csection they can get you back and not have to worry about you vomiting food.. Let the ice chips melt into water, get dh to sneak some juice in.. LOL I also ate crackers earlier on and my midwife just ignore me when she seen me chewing.. LOLOL The hospital I delivered at would also give you popcicles too.
