We were talking about this on another thread....what do you want your first meal/food to be after delivering baby? I remember with DS1, within 15 minutes the nurses brought me peanut butter and graham crackers and a Pepsi...ohmygosh that was the best food ever b/c I hadn't eaten in almost 24 hours. I kept asking for more and I think I cleaned them all out of those little individual cups of PB. ha ha!
Here's a question...with my most recent delivery (c-section) I couldn't eat anything after I delivered except ice chips until I passed gas (I think?) then I could have clear liquids like broth. I was starving! I will be delivering at a different hospital this time...I am hoping that their policy is different. BTDT c-section mamas...what was your experience with that?

they brought me a tray... I wanted NOTHING to do with it. I sent DH down the street to get me a strawberry coolata and an everything bagel with cream cheese from Dunkin Donuts. I think it may have been the BEST thing I EVER ate
Baby #3 due July 6 2013
That evening after I delivered via csection I was supposed to be on a clear liquids diet. But someone brought me chips and queso from my fav mexican place and I ate that.
This time I haven't really thought about it. I liked the hospital food last time I will probably just eat what they serve. I haven't been very deprived this pregnancy so there is nothing I'm dying to have.
My hospitals food is actually alright! I had tomato soup with crackers one time but I don't remember the other three times. I do remember being very hungry!
I want a huge plate of raw sushi this time! Not right after delivery but maybe next day fir lunch

After a csection is usually liquids for a few hours, maybe the first day but that's a long time. I honestly did not want to eat anything but the jello and the chicken broth was heavenly afterwards.
You can probably call the hospital and ask what their 'after csection' procedure is. That way you know. I was only in the hospital for 2 full nights after my c/s and I remember sending my DH out for food on my second day. My hospital has nice food but I was craving Mexican food!
I haven't really thought about this.
I think it was w/ my first daughter that right after I delivered they were trying to hurry me out to a recovery room & I kept stalling. My husband brought me a burger & fries combo plate along w/ a diet mt dew. I cannot recall ever eating that fast before or since then.

I delivered late at night they had no food for me...serious, it was crackers and apple juice til the am, I think breakfast came at 9....I was starving.
With DD I had my parents go get me Carls Jr. And yes, it was awesome.
This time the only thing close will be Mexican or In n out. I hope it is not the middle of the night.
My only option at the hospital will be a chicken salad sandwich, pretty much! Haha. I will take some of my own cooking and keep it in the fridge there. But I plan to order pizza as soon as I get home, I think!! Then I want a nice big deli turkey sandwich, maybe with a little cranberry sauce...mmm. And somehow I want to get a couple Bellinis, ASAP!! I wish I could do take-out drinks
