  • I suppose it depends on if your having pain meds. If you are then they don't recommend anything in your stomach. I would eat very light and not eat anything past noon. If you get pain meds sometimes they make people sick so that's why they would rather you have an empty stomach, otherwise I'm not sure. I probably wouldn't eat anything past 2(light snack at that time). Call your OB and ask they will tell you. Congrats!
