Last week we went to a dinner party at a friend's house and literally everything on the menu was a listeria risk food!
It put me in a very awkward position. I didn't know what to do, whether to be polite and eat the food, or rude and say "I'm sorry but I can't eat any of this." I was 10 weeks pregnant then so we hadn't announced I was pregnant.
- soft cheese platter to start
- cold chicken
- potato salad with homemade mayonaise, containing raw egg
- then an undercooked pavlova!
In the end I just picked at a bit of potato salad and really hoped I didn't get listeria.
What are you doing when you are offered listeria foods, particularly by people who don't know you're pregnant?
I have lots of work Xmas functions at the moment with alcohol, sushi, cheese etc and it's all getting a bit awkward. 12 week scan is next Friday so hopefully we can announce after that.
