Am I going to want food during labor? - Page 2

post #21 of 22

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.

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.
