I remember those last few weeks of pregnancy and I actually was 10 days late with my first child----- so was almost 42 weeks pregnant! Ugh. I actually could only eat and drink very little at the end. there simply was no room and I got heartburn that was so painful. I would eat grapes as they helped with the thirst I was having, peanut butter sandwiches for protein, etc. But I'd say at 40 weeks pregnant, if you can eat--- eat whatever you want! You earned it!!
Once I had my baby, I was mindful of what I ate due to nursing. I found acidic things like pasta red sauce kind of upset my babies tummy.
