    Ok, heres the story. Last night I went to OH's mum's house for dinner. We got served Beef Wellington & I ate it. Only today have I realised it contains mushroom pate & slightly undercooked beef (I thought it was just some sauce-type thing over the beef as the pink bits weren't in the middle, they were on the outside of the beef fillet). Anyways...

    Ever since learning this I have been googling it to death but cannot find any useful info on it regarding pregnancy...just wondering if u guys could help me out ?

    PS: I ate it all because: (A) I didn't know what it was made of at the time, & (B) I didn't want to offend anyone by not eating it (if u know what I mean). It was ingested last night at about 7pm(ish) and I feel totally fine at the moment. Although, that isn't much reasurrance as Listeria (from the mushroom pate) can take upto 2 months to show. Now I'm rly worried. Has anyone else accidentally ate something in the 'bad' list & their baby turned out ok at the end ? Any reassurance or info would be greatly appreciated at this time. Thanks. xx

    No idea about the different things, sorry! Could you try ringing your midwife, ours has a 24 hour enquiry line and have been really good with me when I have had panics like eating out of date potato salad and other crazy things!
    Hope you get a positive response xx

    the mushroom pate' shouldnt be a listeria risk hun as its not got meat in it and its the liver pate' and chicken pate' we need to be avoiding caus of the risk also the Vit A in liver isnt great. if the meat was just slightly pink ( if at all ) then you should be fine so long as it wasnt bleeding on your plate

    I wouldn't worry too much. You are not in the 1st trimester anymore and there must only be a small chance of catching something. Take reassurance that in other countries they often eat and drink all sorts when pregnant. I would be more careful now i'm pregnant but am not avoiding things all together. I went to someone's house on saturday and had chicken stuffed with silton. I ate it and won't spend my time worrying about it and it was yummy!!!!

    ok depending on the cheese used in the pate' it should be fine i doubt your OH's mum went out and brought specialty cheeses to go in her pate' and even then because it was cooked not raw the risk is extremely low

    I'm pretty sure the pate would be low risk - it's heated and vegetarian.
