    Maybe cereal bars, seeds, fruit, nuts, sesame bars, some chocolate, things of this nature I would imagine.

    I have loads to get yet, what are you wearing for delivery, if you dont mind me asking???

    I thought about things like biscuits, crisps, nutrigrain bars...maybe some ribena cartons. A few sweets, probably the hard boiled type so they last!!! I also thought I might put in some flapjacks and plenty of fruit :D

    LOL snacks arn't for you... bad midna..

    Snacks for the OH... You won't be able to eat anything during labour... for one you need to be nil by mouth encase you need an emergency c section and they have to give you a general anaesthetic.. and two... I have yet to meet a woman who did not puke up at least once during their labour. I made the silly mistake of eating when I went into labour and whoops it all came back up again... :rotfl:

    I would suggest those lucozade tabs though... just to keep your energy up during labour.. and a natural sponge to suck on or some ice chips... they are really nice and refreshing. :)

    I stand corrected... but still you won't eat anything :( no matter how bloody hungry you are... :roll: Then you get a pointless, tiny, little bowl of cereal the next morning... :wall: :wall: :wall: to which point you demand your mum/OH/any visitor to BRING FOOOOOOD!!!!!!

    In the hospital here they incourage you to eat during labour, and advise you to pack cereal bars, chocolate, high energy foods for you and OH during labour, and cartons of orange juice to drink to keep energy levels up, its important that the body is nourished during its hardest job.

    I ate muesli and cereal bars and drank orange juice, i was sick but it definatly helped out.

    I've had mine packed since I was 26 weeks because I'm so paranoid about prem labour but haven't added the snacks yet. I'm thinking cereal bars are probably a good option as they don't need special storage and are high in energy.

    At the moment I have Chocolate, biscuits, crisps, and chocolate biscuits bottles of water and will chuck some fruit in before we go. I'm naughty tho as when the cupboard snacks run out I keep digging into my labour bag and having to buy more stuff :oops:

    I definately wont be packing any snacks, the only time i tried eating during labour i was sick unlike when i didn't eat anything with my first. I found nothing worse than having a contraction whilst heaving and being sick.

    Last time i wouldn't have had enough time to eat!!!!!! I barely got there in time. I won't be taking snacks but i will take money for dh to go get me whatever i fancy (if anything), I doubt i will eat until afterwards.

    I personally have had two previous labours - not eaten during either of them and not been sick with either of them
