    ... Ive started googling again :(
    I had a chicken sarnie from Boots and now im convinced it has given me Listeria bacteria! (Im not sure how but it just has ok?!)
    I also read that we pregnant folk arent supposed to eat deli meats unless they have been reheated....how the hell was I supposed to reaheat a chicken sandwich?????


    Flip sake man... im off to live in a cave with no internet connection until ive popped out my baby.

    Your as bad as me! I have nothing to eat now since all my goggling was done at the start and am even afraid to eat a mushroom,. i dont think they do harm i just cant for some reason eat things that could make you sick of poisin. I wont even eat chicken anymore. :( no meats really unless its cooked by me and propaly. Its a nightmare. Well better safe than sorry is my moto.

    You want to know what my doctor told me? that I should just keep eating the way I was, minus unpasteurized foods and deep sea fish, as long as my diet was balanced. Its worked for me, thus far, LO is growing just like she should, and although I had a wicked 24 flu the other day, I'm doing great. Take from that what you will, but rest assured our mothers didn't even think about half the stuff that we worry about and we all seem to be fine...

    I heard that about deli meat a few weeks ago, but I had never seen warnings anywhere "official", if you like, so I didn't let it worry me.

    You should be very careful about re-heating meat though hun, I would never re-heat cooked chicken that has been allowed to cool, not before I was pregnant and certainly not now.

    I think the worry is where cooked meat has been left out for long periods without proper hygiene procedures being observed. But supermarkets and packeted sandwich manufacturers have strict guidelines to follow so I really wouldn't stress about that one.

    There is this street cart where I often buy my lunch and I was having ham sandwiches from them every day right through 1st tri, their hygiene procedures are probably none existent :rofl: but I never got ill.

    If you're worried about deli meat, just don't eat at Subway - lol. That's based on cleanliness though. This listeria pandemic is getting out of hand!

    I'm off to get me some pepperettes and I'm going to enjoy the hell out of them!
