I was nauseated sooo bad during labor but I had prepared all of my labor snacks beforehand so we brought them anyways. I had lots of frozen grapes prepared, almonds and crackers with cheese slices. I was passing ketones in my urine and they forced me to eat during labor to avoid an IV. I wasn't getting enough down with the grapes so between every contraction they shoved popsicle and water down my throat. I avoided an IV but only because my doula spoke up. The midwives actually wanted to give me one.
