Spoke to my Mum this eve and she said that as long as ham is in date and fresh maybe buy small amount at a time shouldn't be a problem and that my sisters always had ham and turkey sandwiches through pregnancies so i will continue eating my fav ham,edam and chili sauce sarnies!
I live in Canada and we have had a TERRIBLE listeriosis outbreak here. A lot of was from pre-packaged sandwiches and peperoni. Since the outbreak I havn't had any sort of deli-meats. Before that tho I hate bologna like it was going outta style!! It was all I could stomach for weeks! I talked to my midwife and she said everything in moderation. If all you can stomach bc of bad morning sickness/all day sickness is bologna then eat it rather then starving yourself. Its all just a matter of personal decisions! I eat and drink a lot of things you probably shouldnt (not like alcohol or anything, just a lot of pop, junk food when Im craving it). Just think of our parents and the things they ate back then, it seems more and more nowadays pregnant women cant eat or drink anything because it could be harmful! My midwife says my baby is 100% healthy and at no risks.
