pre c section diet
Tue, 06-02-2009 - 11:07pm

Hi Ladies
My c section is 36 hours away!
I can't find much info about what to eat in the days prior.....I have only read that it might be helpful to eat a "semi Iiquid" diet......yogurt, pasta soup, eggs....etc.
My doc, however, says to eat whatever I want....that it doesn't matter.
It seems that it would be a good idea to eat easy to digest foods....right?

Any insight? Input?
(and of course, I know, no food or drink the morning of surgery)

I would just eat whatever you want....but try to avoid things that might get you a little gassy--beans, etc...just so you don't end up with gas pains after your c/s (you may end up with gas pains anyway--but maybe no gassy foods would lessen the chance of them)
