All I remember is that it involved jello which I hated before then but which tasted like the nectar of the gods after delivery. I still like it.

I’d been planning on a burrito and made my husband pick one up when my labor started. I ended up being off burritos for several months after that.

I had my son at noon so I missed lunch, my first meal was hospital “dinner”, cold mashed potatoes and slimy green beans and some sort of turkey thing that I wouldn’t touch. I sent DH out to get me a big greasy slice of pizza and it was glorious!

Have that coffee!

Breakfast at the hospital, it wasn’t too bad!  But the day we got home DH went and got sushi and wine.  I remember notably that a ham and cheese sandwich was my favorite post baby meal.

snowflake8 :  

I delivered around 1:00am and the cafeteria was closed. I had a relatively short labor, so it’s not like I was deprived of food. I think the gave me crackers or something. The next morning I ordered an omlet, bacon, pancakes, a bowl of fruit and a cinnamon roll. I was trying to sneakily feed DH too. I remember it being good, but it’s a vague memory. Mostly I was all-consumed with the little creature that came out of me!

snowflake8 :  so my baby was never impacted by caffeine or alcohol in moderation,  but my coworker’s daughter was super sensitive.  

My first food after labor was dried pears and pretzels? I have food allergies, my labor went super quick and the kitchen was closed,  but I was required to eat to take pain meds (unmediated birth,  bad year of the labia and cervix).  My husband packed snacks, so that’s what I ate to get my drugs. 

My first meal was eggs,  bacon,  gluten free toast,  a banana,  and coffee

My son was born just after 8 pm. I had some little fruit plate and some juice from the hospital, and a few bites of pasta that my brother brought. I was too distracted to really be hungry, despite being in labor since 3 am that morning. I had some mediocre hospital waffles for breakfast the next morning, then had my dad go get me a real meal from one of my favorite restaurants. So my first actual meal, to me, was a strawberry spinach salad and a potato burrito. It was amazing. I wouldn’t have wanted caffeine (not due to breastfeeding concerns) just because I wanted to be able to rest and sleep as needed after delivery. Best of luck!

snowflake8 : Good question! I’m planning on when I get home to have a bacon and brie baguette – mmm melted brie and then I’ll probably want pate at some point too as well as a glass of prosecco 😉

I had coffee and  a cheese and spinach quiche from Panera with my second.. and I had a wegmans turkey sub with my first… I had been craving it the whole pregnancy. I ate turkey subs for lunch and dinner for weeks after the first was born. It was a running joke that  you couldn’t hold the baby without handing over a turkey sub.

My baby boy is due in June. When it is nice and hot outside… I cannot wait to slurp down an ICE COLD DOS XX with like 4 limes… extra salt. 

Can you tell I have been thinking a lot about this? 🙂

I had fantasies of what I would eat as my first meal, but I had zero appetite after giving birth and for the following 2 weeks. I ate the terrible hospital food, my first meal was a cheese sandwich on dry bread lol.
