I believe that if it's FRESH, carved off the bone, and has been stored properly- ie not sitting out on the bench, then it's usually okay.

Personally I wouldn't be eating it a week after buying it IYKWIM, keep it fresh and stored well and cut it as you eat it.

Thanks Jaydee!

I actually asked my Dr. about it and she pretty much said the same thing. As long as it's stored properly, hasn't been sitting out in the heat and fresh it will be OK.

Depends on who you talk to but one coffee a day is fine. I had one a day last time I was PG and am doing the same this time.

Not sure if there is caffine in Chai or not.

The links at the start of this thread didn't work for me. I have been doing a bit of reading around this from various websites and books and I think I have come up with an extensive list that could be used as a guide to follow if you wished to. Here it is - let me know if there are any I have missed.

Alcohol - Some reports (WHO, NH&MRC) say to completely avoid. Others say half a glass with a meal very occasionally is fine.

Sugar substitutes - Try to avoid as much as possible.

Caffeine - Limit. Is found in coffee, tea, chocolate, soft drink.

Herbal and green tea - Avoid.

Meat - Avoid rare or medium cooked meat. All meat must be thoroughly cooked.

Raw meat - Avoid.

Cold cooked meat - Avoid.

Meat and liver pates - Avoid.

Processed and deli meats - Avoid. Includes hot dogs.

Smoked / cured / dried / fermented meats - Avoid. Eg. chorizo.

Fish - Avoid raw, undercooked and smoked fish. Swordfish, marlin, king mackerel, shark, gemfish, ling, barramundi and tuna should be limited to once per month. Other fish no more than once per week.

Seafood - Avoid raw or undercooked shellfish such as oysters, mussels, prawns, crab and fish in sushi.

Smoked seafood - Avoid. Eg. smoked salmon

Cheese - Avoid brie, camembert, ricotta, feta, blue vein. Hard cheese such as cheddar is OK.

Soft serve ice cream - Avoid.

Raw/undercooked egg - Avoid. Includes runny egg yolks, mayonnaise, some creamy salad dressings such as caesar, homemade ice cream or custards, hollandaise sauces, and eggnog.

MSG and processed food - Try to avoid as much as possible.


General comments

Avoid pre-packed salads and sandwiches. Don’t eat takeaway or food court food that has been sitting in a bain marie. Ensure all takeaway food is piping hot. Wash all fruit and vegetables thoroughly. Don’t eat leftover food that is more than 12 hours old.

Moe - with the alcohol, from memory WHO actually advises that there is NO safe level of alcholic drinks, so therefore intake should be Zero.
Its a real bugbear of my drinking and pregnancy...

True - as does the National Health and Medical Research Council. I think what they say is that because there is no proof they mild drinking doesn't affect a fetus, then they advise to completely abstain. There are differing reports I guess is different literature.... I will amend accordingly!

From what I understand these are ok to eat if they have been cooked like salami and brieon a pizza or smoked salmon in a pasta.

Bacon - I would assume is totally fine as you cook it. You can have ham as well as long as it is cooked... I lived off bacon in my last pregnancy tongue.gif

Hey girls..

Got a cheesy question.. smile.gif

Eat or avoid??

I *love* my bocca with tomato & basil on fresh bread. Was eating some this afternoon for lunch and a customer told me I was mad. That will deform your child. WTF..

Anyone know either way?

Waiting4thesun I probably wouldn't risk it, unless it was thoroughly heated.

On the NSW Food Authority list of safe foods it says:

"Soft and semi-soft cheese e.g. brie, camembert, ricotta, fetta, blue etc.
Don’t eat unless in a fully cooked dish e.g. spinach and ricotta canneloni."

I'm hoping the gorgonzola on my favourite vegetarian pizza is safe to eat...

Two more things to add:

Egg-free mayonnaise: The Praise 97% fat-free mayonnaises are completely vegan (ie egg-free). Other brands may be as well.

Coldsore creams/tablets: not allowed during pregnancy and breastfeeding. scary!
