  • i actually craved hospital food after i had my babies. after the first, she was vaginal so i was allowed honey crackers and apple juice. damn, that was the best meal i ever had after being in labor for 22 hours and allowed nothing but ice chips. my other two were cesareans so i was only allowed clear liquids after the first several hours. when they brought me the menu's to decide what meal i wanted, i think i checked off the fattiest meals that were available. LOL

  • With my first I had been in labor for 50 hours and then the hour of pushing while they starved me. When I called my dad to tell him I had delivered (his first grand baby), I asked him to get me some McDonalds on his way. He was so excited to see the baby that he asked me if he could go back out and get it later...on no uncertain terms, I let him know that he better have that McDonalds when he got there!

    I honestly don't think it was the McDonalds. I think I would have eaten the bag it came in at that point. I was starving.

  • The nurse. The Dr asked if I wanted any pain meds and I said no just food. So the nurse brought me soup, salad, a cheese burger, 2 cookies, ice cream, and pasta salad. I ate it all! I don't even like beef, lol. An hour later I was hungery again!

  • The nurse asked me if I wanted to eat something. I ordered a turkey sandwhich and slice of chocolate cake. It tasted so good.

    With my second, she was a c-section and I didn't really develop an appetite until after I got home. My mom made me veal marsala and mashed potatoes and I cried because of how good it tasted! I was ravenous!!!!!!!!!

  • I have a huge addiction to diet coke and was told by my ob to limit the diet coke intake during the pregnancy :( so when my cousin got the news I was in lablr she picked up an ice cold 20 oz and put it on the counter as my 'focal point" nd put another in the fridge! I dontthink the baby was out 15 min and she had it cracked open for me! If she was not the godmother of one of my older kids thatalone would have won her the honor! LOL
