  • I did. I stoped at burger king. the nurse actually told me to because i wouldnt be able to eat and she said that if I did that it would still be a couple of hours before either giving birth or having a c section and by then my food would already be digested. So I did and everything was fine I ended up in labor for 10 hours the only thing would be bowel movements while pushing.!

  • Personally I wouldn't grab food even though it might be awhile before I eat again, but my situation is different. I have to have a c-section because I have a complete previa...if I eat and I need to have my procedure done they will have to wait and that could cause I guess it depends on your individual pregnancy..

  • haha, I agree with anonymous. I've never stopped for something to eat...mostly because it's the last on my mind...both times on the way to the hospital I was in way too much pain to think about food.

  • It you are in ACTIVE labor....meaning contractions every 5 minutes or is not what is on one's mind...pushing a baby out is! LOL Now...husbands...that is a different story all together. Husbands are famous for running through the kitchen or cafetera for a last minute snack! LOL

  • No because if you need surgery then you might puke and die...sorry to be that blunt.
