  • Like right after? No, I was in recovery after having an emergency c-section and food was the last thing on my mind. And I passed out after my second son was born. I had been in labor for 23 hours and pushed for 4...I was beyond exhausted. But an hour later when I woke up I started demanding food! LOL!!

  • As soon as i had my baby i was feeling starved, i ate alot for 2 days. In which i noticed my milk fully came in then, causing me to be less hungry. When i nurse i have no appetite, but in between feedings i eat a little and healthy!

  • No, I wasn't hungry for about a week. I only ate what I needed to to breastfeed.

  • I ate right after both my kids were born. As so as I was cleaned up and had went to the restroom. I had DD after midnight and the cafeteria was closed, so my OB gave me her lunch. She is so sweet. After DS buy the time I got cleaned up it was time to order breakfast from room service. (Yep, my hospital had room service, and it was awesome.) But after I got home with both my kids I had post partum depression so bad I couldn't eat a thing.

  • No, it takes me a LONG time to get my appetite back after I deliver. I was worried the first time around, and just grateful for the jump start on my diet the second

  • When they were cleaning me up and DD was in the nursery getting testing and such I sent DH to Wendys to get me a ton of food. I vomited 6 times a day the entire pregnancy. Was finally able to eat and not throw up or feel sick. Ah spicy chicken sandwich and french fries never tasted so good. LOL
