I think friends brought us dinner when we got home with our first baby from the hospital. But I don't remember what it was.
With the second baby, also in the hospital, I know I must have had breakfast as my first meal, but I don't remember it. Someone, I think my FIL, brought me a nice coffee from Starbucks. I did send DH out for a hamburger from Chili's (it was closest to the hospital) for lunch/dinner. That burger was divine! When we got home with baby #2 a friend brought us dinner also. I'm pretty sure it was one of those box meals you add some chicken to. Having just had a baby, though, I thought it tasted delicious!
With my second, it was a panini from Johnny Carino's that my hubby went out to get. It was so good!
I don't remember the first thing we had when I got home.
We were low on food anyways, so she would've had to cook eggs or something. I had fed the freezer, but DH left the door open one day and spoiled EVERYTHING......argh.
After that, my first real meal was take-out from a rather nice restaurant that was owned by a friend of my dad's that happened to be located right by the hospital. Husband went down and picked up a mountain of food for the entire family (filets, homemade desserts, appetizers) and we ended up with a real feast in my room. He provided the plates, linens and cultery too. The nurses didn't know what to think.
Our first home meal was provided by our dear neighbors who brought it into the kitchen, set everything up and left without bothering us. It was lasanga, an awsome salad filled with fresh herbs and a bottle of red wine. Honest to goodness, I can remember the taste of that salad right now.
After my second, I had the chicken soup dh cooked me while I was in labor> I was extremely exhausted and hungry all through transition and pushing. I have never been that tired in all my life (after ds was born). And ravenously hungry. By the time he finished, I was starting to push and wanted him in the birth pool with me. I had two or three bowls of chicken soup, and then they brought me a platter with almonds, pears, grapes, almond butter (maybe it was peanut), and I forget what else. I gobbled it up and my jaw hurt afterward from chewing the raw almonds up. I remember having to wake dh up at least twice at night to get me more food, I was that hungry!!!
Cream of tomato soup w/ rice, the best i ever had!
Left over lasagne, left over friend chicken, left over buttered noodles... after ds#2
I waited through my whole pregnancy for sushi!!! It was all I wanted for breakfast lunch and dinner for 10 months!
When early labor started, I decided "what harm can it do now" and ate myself a whole bait shop!!!
number #2 was at home. I had toast and emergen C all through labor and had her at 8:30 pm, so I wasn't too starved and got to sleep about 1am. When I got up though I was starving, I had about 3 cups of orange juice, 4 or 5 farm fresh eggs, 4 pieces of bacon and 2-3 pieces of toast.
After ds's birth my mom tried to give me the homemade enchiladas she had made during my labor. I didn't really feel hungry because I was so excited and the labor was so fast. My MW insisted I had to eat something so my mom made some scrambled eggs and toast. I think I may ask for that after this baby too, it was really filling, easy to eat and like comfort food.

I came home on Thanksgiving, and my mom brought over dinner for us. It was great! Mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cornbread with honey butter, stuffing, green beans, carrots, and cranberry sauce. Oh, and a nice glass of red.
Baby #2- toast and tea for breakfast
Baby #3- cold pizza for breakfast

#2 - turkey sandwich & a Coke from Wendy's
#3 - chicken quesadilla & a Dr. Pepper from Taco Bell
I tried to pick the healthiest item from whatever fast food place the family was going to after the birth. And the sodas were must-haves--I CRAVED soda during labor all three times.
But in the hospital, about an hour after DD was born, I was BEGGING for food - I had gone 25 hours without food! So they brought me a disgusting turkey sandwich and I ate every bite of it.

OK, seriously - First one was breakfast...DS was born around 1am and I was exhausted...26 hour active labor and too tired to eat. I had DH bring me a Dunkin Donuts sausage/egg/sesame bagel and some donuts. It was reeeeeally good, Fyrestorm is right!!
Second time I had DD late afternoon and was I beat. Shorter labor, but very intense. By the time my mom and DH went home (to be with DS, I made him) it was night time. A nurse really insisted I eat (she was so sweet, and concerned.) She made me a simple buttered bagel at the nurses station. I thought I wasn't hungry and it turned out to be one of the best things I ever tasted!
The hospital birth center I went to had 24 hour room service (and great pizza!) so the options were good.
Mama to DS (8) and DD (7) Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself." And the London Underground is not a political movement.
I was at a birth recently though that the gal made Jok before hand-- I thought it was great! It was white rice already cooked, and then cooked again w/ chicken broth until it made kind of a creamy oatmeal type texture-- she put in some pieces of chicken and then some torn lettuce (I don't remember the type-- but it was a greener verity) right before eating it. Rice and Chicken is great for picking up the energy.
