I think listeria is serious. I wouldn't ever forgive myself if if I lost a baby because I couldn't stop eating soft cheese and cold meat for nine months.
To me its something so simple that prevents something so devastating.
Maybe the risk is one in a million maybe its one in ten but it's a risk easily avoided.
Wont catch me near cats, deep sea fish, smokers, alcohol etc either.
What I do hate to my very core is people who feel the need to lecture you on how its perfectly ok to eat. Or do this or that. Its my body and my baby and if I chose to be healthy then thats my freaking right!!
OOOHHH... INTERNET FIGHT. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO? CAPS LOCK ME TOO DEATH?

but by my 4th pregnancy I looked into it further and learnt some stuff about listeria and decided the risk was barely worth any lost sleep. The only things I avoid during pregnancy is coffee and alcohol smile
Hi Ruby Gloom thats interesting that by your fourth pregnancy u seemed to have relaxed. I heard that a lot of mums are more relaxed when they have their second or third pregnancy. what did u learn about listeria? this is my first pregnancy and I am just stressed out about everything i eat...for example I took a few bites of a chicken yiros which was just warm and I was so stressed that I couldnt stop talking about it and lost sleep lol! The yiros was from a foodcourt in a big shopping mall and they had heaps of customers lined up also! However I do remember a few months ago I ate a vietnamese pork roll and it was just warm also but it tasted soo good that I couldnt stop eating it and it was what I was craving at that time! I wish I could stop stressing out about high risk foods sad
I was so sick of people (family especially) offering a glass of wine everytime I saw them, then making an issue of it when I declined.
that sounds unreasonable to make an issue over..ur pregnant for goodness sakes!many research shows that alcohol is not good at all during pregnancy! I think some people forget when someone is pregnant or just don't know how to cater and support a pregnant lady. I got offered alcohol a few times by a family member and i had to keep reminding them! That was when I wasnt showing And now that I am showing I feel like family are more supportive and nurturing. Its weird..!
I was a big drinker before - around 2-3 beers a night or 2 glasses of wine so was very hard to give up drinking completely. I haven't touched wine though, only light beer and not very often.
I have had ham as I find it's the only meat I can stomach at the moment!
