@Gingermom15 I was the same way after my section. Felt like crap for a few hours because of all the meds, but then it went from not hungry at all to FEED ME EVERYTHING. I ate an embarrassing amount of food, especially that first day, haha.

I love how this thread has turned into another food thread
When I delivered my second they told me no food after midnight the night before (it was a planned induction) and then I went in at 6AM, they started my meds at 8 (I was GBS+ so I needed 4 hours of antibiotics before they started the Pitocin), Pitocin at noon and I didn't give birth until a little after 3. I was SO HUNGRY it wasn't even funny. I packed a snack bag for DH and he was sneaking me chex mix when the nurses were out of the room. They had a cafeteria for spouses/workers but they had set meal times. They also sent up a menu with different choices that you marked for each meal and then they would bring that to you at the designated meal times. Of course when I delivered it was between meal times so there was nothing until around 6 but thankfully they had a little snack area in the hall that was free for everyone at all times and had sandwiches, chips, fruit, etc so I wouldn't wither away haha. Definitely ask about the outside food policy (my hospital didn't care) and I always packed a snack bag for DH which he appreciated so he didn't have to leave at certain times to get food from the cafeteria, especially if family was visiting, etc. They also did a nice "celebration" meal for both of us (both times) with a wheeled table and a fancy meal and sparking grape juice in champagne glasses. One of my co-workers said that the hospital she went to it was optional and she had to pay for it, but the hospital I went to it was "complimentary" (I put that in " because with how much they charged for everything I'm sure I paid for it somehow or another). I was always hungry after birth and wanted regular food but luckily I never had any nausea or complications while giving birth, I also never had a c/s so I didn't have any food restrictions.
I also strongly recommend getting up and walking around after giving birth and getting a shower asap, I didn't with my first and did with my second, I felt so much better after walking around and the shower was amazing, it made me feel so much better so don't put it off unless instructed otherwise.
