    I never thought about this, I stopped last month once I got my bfp, but then I don't really eat that stuff anyway. I do eat a lot of eggs so started over cooking them once I got bfp.

    That is a good question I never thought about it, specially since I love my meat and eggs on the undercooked side but I guess now it was pointed out to me I might start doing it cause of you can get it while pregnant I'm sure you can get it when not!

    Things on my end are going alright, cd 14 although my temps are showing me that I might be having a long cycle or not ovulating at all so now just patiently waiting to ovulate now and see what happens! Also dh and I have decided that if it doesn't happen this month we might wait till feb 2013 to start trying again (although no contraception will be used) we need a bit of time to get a bit of our finances straight!

    I know I love my runny yolk and I have at least 3 eggs a day, not big on cheeses so that's easy, but oli work in a gym and exercise alot so my biggest struggle is I love my protein shakes and adding protein powder to wheatbix and Greek yoghurt and it says on the box not to have if pregnant or breastfeeding. So that sucks big time for me!

    Oh yes, I do take precautions with kitty litter and don't take any strong pain meds in the tww (I get migraines).

    I thought as much!! I have been refraining from the 'no go' foods just as a precaution, but wasn't sure if I was being over zealous. Also, I have steered clear of the antihistamines for hayfever (which is killing me!!)

    I remember at Uni learning that day 22 of pregnancy is when the neural tube closes, and this is a pivitol point in the formation of the nervous system. Most people don't even know they are pregnant at this point, so I guess it makes sense to be cautious in the early stages.

    I guess part of me doesn't want to have the mindframe that I will be pregnant.. almost as a self preservation thing, to stop me being overly disappointed if I am not. I find myself thinking all the time '...well I'm probably still going to be TTC next month' and the like...

    I just eat what i like - even when pregnant i dont cut out anything. I think you just need to use common sense about eating things you dont know how old it is and making sure what you do eat is fresh. I still ate soft cheese, runny eggs, sushi, ham etc as long as i made it or trusted the source.

    I just had a ham sandwich but I think I'll get my husband to clean the kitty litter. I've had cats all my life so most likely already immune to toxoplasmosis so just an excuse really to make my husband do a chore!

    Before implantation you're probably even OK to have a drink (not excessive amounts) as the baby isn't connected to your blood******. Probably similar with foods etc. The problem is you can't be sure when implantation occurs so best to avoid. Most of the food advice is based on the fact that you have lowered immunity during pregnancy to stop your body rejecting the foreign tissue (baby) so you are more likely to get sick and some types of food poisoning can lead to miscarriage. This lowered immunity probably doesn't kick in before implantation though (just my educated guess).

    I was pretty lax with my son. Ate fresh sushi (not the raw fish type though) and also feta etc (only prepackaged not handled by deli staff at the supermarket). But like Mumsical I was very picky about the source. All dairy sold in Australia is made from pasturised milk so should be safe but it's the mould (brie, camembert, blue) that's the problem. I've had a couple of miscarriages this year (not related to food) so will try and be more careful with #2. I couldn't resist eating raw cake mix (raw eggs) so I guess I probably just shouldn't bake! Fresh raw eggs are unlikely to be contaminated but it's the outside of the shell that can have bits of poop (salmonella) on it and it's very hard to crack an egg without touching the outside. Probably best to wash and dry the outside of any eggs before use especially if you're going to have soft yolk or eat raw in cake mix like me!

    I'm 2DPO and already bought some FRER tests. Not sure if I can wait till next Sunday (10DPO) to test. Will be very tempted to test next Friday and/or Saturday. That's only a week away, yay!
