I think the time is drawing near. I feel so puky today and had a longer than usual night on the toilet. I know that now is the time to be stocking up on energy, but also know that at somepoint stuff will be coming back up. Any ideas for vomit safe food that is somewhat good for you? I don't feel like eating at all right now but am so hungry already.

What did you find you enjoyed during early labor or wish you had?

Chicken broth, or miso soup. Any liquids that are wamr are absorbed faster. Even if you can not retain them they will leave some nutrition on your body.

good luck!!

Bread, bananas, rice, apple sauce. Then if that stays down, add some eggs and more protein.

Oatmeal?
Hope you feel better once you've eaten.

pb toast and apple sauce, followed by alphagettis at lunch.
No eggs, normally they upset my tummy a little, so they are off the list. You're right I did feel better after eating but am still right under the brink. I'm hoping this is early labor but don't want to get my hopes up if it takes a few days to jump start, or isn't at all.

Made my labor aid and I must say it doesn't so much as taste bad but it does make me gag sometimes, I think it's the bakingsoda taste as well as the reaction with the lemon that makes it kinda fizzy. I'm hoping it's just a taste adjustment thing and after a while I'll get over it. Hopefully before actual labor, but since there is so much i figured I might as well use it as my drink of choice for the time being so it doesn't go to waste if I send DH out for poweraid during the actual labor.

Potatoes and sweet potatoes were great for me. Especially sauteed. But homemade bone broth would be awesome for all the nutrients if you can keep it down! Good luck!

I found I really wanted to eat (and did!) plain pasta with some butter and parmesan cheese on it. I craved the carbs for energy and the plain pasta was easy to eat in small amounts over the day. It was very yummy.

I also ate a lot of fresh fruit. Grapes, strawberries and cantaloupe. Very satisfying.

I was going to suggest this. I'm not in labor, but I am feeling some nausea most days again. Fresh fruit really hits the spot. Especially watermelon and blueberries.
