I didn't eat during labor AT ALL. I did drink a protein drink when I started feeling contractions which helped me have some energy during active labor.
Am I going to want food during labor? - Page 2

I brought snacks/drinks, and didn't really eat - and then after a 24 hour labor and pushing for 3 hrs my MW finally said to my DH and Doula - she's too weak, did you bring snacks or drinks?
And I chugged a whole vitamin water and had a handful of nuts and pushed him out in 10 mins. I would not have thought of food or asked for it, but I did need it.
