Hello pg vegans, veggies, etc.!
I had a wonderful TG with some friends this year and I even made vegan dressing (thanks Pinksprklybarefoot) for the first time. We ate ourselves sick and washed it all down with some homemade chai.Vegan Princess
, I'm glad we're talking about food during labor b/c I know very little about it (hospital induction and surgical birth last time). I was just planning to eat whatever I felt like eating that we had in the house (that is reasonably healthy). Are there any rules of thumb to follow with this? Nothing really spicy? Anyone with insights, let us know.Veganmama
I hope my mws are good to me like that. So, you're actually hungry right after the birth? Whatever the drugs were that they had me on in the hospital last time were so potent that I felt nothing (no pain, hunger, or emotion) until I went home and my milk came in a few days later.
I do know that it's probably a good idea to visit the grocery/natural foods store and stock up on certain things (whole wheat bagels, nuts, nut butters, makings for hummus, whole grain pasta and sauce, fruits and veggies in a ready-to-eat form, snacks for guests, etc.) before the baby comes b/c I know that once the milk comes in, I'm going to be eating everything in the house that doesn't require any preparation and can be easily consumed while nursing a baby (when I'm not trying to sleep).
Have a great Thursday, everyone!
