    Ok one not to do is peanuts .. I have read its about allergies & read:

    You can eat nuts while you are pregnant unless, you have or had one of the following.
    -asthma
    -exzema
    -hay fever


    Anyone else any info - the internet had 1001 things to say! I gather peanut butter smooth is a no? :wacko:

    And cheese ... soft cheese? What about primula & philidelphia? No nos?

    Soft cheese is okay if it's pastuerised no blue cheese though. Philly and primula are fine.
    I had cashew nut butter from Holland and Barret instead of peanutbutter, it tastes even better. Other ones to avoid are pate, liver, shellfish, undercooked eggs and meat must be well done! In other words all the things I like!

    some of the stuff the put on there is a bit strict, i eat colesaw, they are just being over protective about the mayo, but i think as long as you know where it comes from its ok. i think its only if its unpasterised (sp?) its a problem.

    I must confess I have not read all the thread :blush: , but....

    I ate coleslaw, unless I ate out at certain pubs (not chains), as they may very well make their own, but I would eat shop bought and KFC coleslaw!

    I longed for a runny egg sarnie and dodged them til I was about 7 months and had one :blush: but I avoided most other things mentioned!

    I've been eating peanut butter, but only because I don't have any problems with the asthma, excema, etc.

    Goats cheese you have to avoid which I love! Most mayo will be fine as it's pretty rare that anyone makes it the traditional way, particularly if you are buying a sandwich at a supermarket or anything like that.

    Caffeine though! I read your other thread, DEF need to cut down on that. Remember that there is caffeine in chocolate and coke too. It all counts.

    Feels like a minefield at first but you'll get the hang of it.

    Hmmm... not specifically but asked about the peanut thing cos I was confused by it. She said the risk was really low and only if you'd got asthma, etc. yourself could you pass it on.

    TBH I think all the risks are pretty low, but why take any risks?

    Used to be totally addicted to the stuff!! :lol:

    Cut right back a few years ago cos I was trying to lose weight and get fit. Had more since I was PG than I've probably had in those healthy years put together. I think it was the "how fat can I possibly get?!" thought that did it! :rofl:

    Well I've taken a look through some info the nurse at the EPU gave me & its state 5 cups of coffee of origanal strenght or 10 cups of teas. Obviously if you have both its easy enough to work out.

    It mentions the peanuts :dohh: says if you or partner suffer from what you mention or food allergies its sensible to avoid. I could slap my OH he has food allergies :trouble:
