    Huh? How did I make people feel bad for following guidelines? I never even said if I did or not? I was just stating facts and responding to some self righteous people who went on about self sacrifice and whatnot

    I think the point is this:

    Driving a car is dangerous any time, less so when you are wearing a seatbelt.

    Eating anything has the potential to cause harm, but why would you not lessen the risk by wearing your 'seatbelt' ( or avoiding the more dangerous ) ? Just my opinion if course

    ETA - "I Told you so" is never helpful to either party. Perhaps more a thought to be kept to ones self.

    Ah these kinds of comments always make me lol, all this tisking about what other women should and shouldn't do...it's so paternalistic to assume a grown woman can't make an informed choice.

    I hope I did not offend, I only meant to express my personal reasoning. Of course pregnant women should have the choice to eat what they like! Apologies if I did.

    NW. Just these sorts of comments scream "I care more about your baby than you do".

    In general (ie not directed at London), I think it's really good for us to know about listeria and take precautions- soft cheese seems to be a higher listeria risk than many other foods so I choose to avoid it. I also limit my intake of other foods like cold meats, and yes even soft serve- but I do eat them sometimes.

    I posted this because its important to know when there is increased risk so we can be more vigilant in such cases. I certainly didn't intend it to be preachy as some of the posts which have taken shots at other people's choices have been. I repeat- soft serve is my weakness!

    As others have pointed out there are risks in everything and it's impossible to avoid them all.

    Some people are better with avoiding some risks than others. If you choose to eat certain foods-great! I'm not judging you! If you choose not to, well done! No judgement. But to take shots at other people over what they door to suggest that they'll get what's coming to them is self-righteous.

    That's all!
