Mama to DS R (June/06), DD K (September/07), DS M (October/08), DD R (June/09)... waiting for #5 in late 2013!!
I have a plan if restaurants are open - either bagels or take-out from Moe's, depending on the time of day. If it's at night, then we're going to bake some cinnamon rolls. Lovely processed food, but mmm carbs. My labors tend to start out fairly intense (contractions 4-6 minutes apart, 45-60 seconds from the beginning) and ds's was just 5 hours, so I don't anticipate having time to organize anything else.
mmmmm, miso! great idea.
i have energy drink mix i love for electrolytes. gonna freeze some of it in ice cube trays. i loved the flavor soooo much during vacation i haven't had it since so i wouldn't get tired of it....
... i think i'm going to make neckbone spaghetti (i know sounds gross, but soooo good, family recipe) during labor. not too intensive, but takes about 6 hours for a couple of gallons of sauce. that should hold us.
ari - aw, i miss my dad now! he loves to cook. maybe i'll entice him out here for some kitchen duty...although he hates nyc.
pookie - thanks for the idea. i didn't even think about whether my midwife has dietary restrictions (). i know what she'll say to me, but i should ask anyway.
and dh will make my special juice. he makes it 2-3 times a week for me now. recipe below for anybody that's interested. really good stuff!!!
5 juice oranges (squishy fruit, on sale works best)
3 cups of water
1/2 cup of sugar
heat the water and sugar in a small pan until the sugar dissolves, but don't allow to boil. pour into a pitcher. juice the fruit and pour the juice and pulp into the pitcher. top off with water to taste.
