They let me eat both times. I was in too much pain to worry with eating the first time, but i ate the 2nd time. It made me extremely nauseous. I was miserable and threw up a lot :/
I don't know if I was or not. When the contractions started getting really bad, food was the last thing on my mind. And I had to start pushing about an hour after I got the epidural.
I never questioned whether I was allowed to eat while laboring and it never crossed my mind because when I was in the hospital I was in to much pain to be thinking about food, lol
I don't think I would eat though for the simple fact that labor is so unpredictable and even though I have never been in any predicament that I needed a C-section, I would not want to put myself at any extra risk if I was snacking and something happened that I needed an emergency one.
