  • I wasn't allowed any food, and all the food I ate earlier in the day came back up, so I just starved. Hubby brought me McDonald's afterwards. What a nice guy!

  • My hubby snuck a Snickers bar into my room. I had to hide in the bathroom to eat it though. All I was allowed, was ice chips I think. I don't really remember. I ate the Snickers at 2am, and at 3 I found out I was having a c-section at 7am. ooopppsss.

  • They gave me some broth and jello at the very beginning, then they wouldn't let me have anything but a few sips of water.

  • Nothing, but I was constantly vomiting so food wasn't a good idea.

  • Nothing. I had hypermesis, and they didn't want me to start vomiting, so I had just some ice chips..no food, nothing.
