    Olive oil I'm pretty relaxed when it comes to food. I was very good for the first trimester with DS but then pretty much ate normally. I only avoided the big risks such as cold rice, alcohol, caffeine and anything from liver such as pate (too high in vitamin A). Apart from that I just made sure I ate things fresh. For example most soft cheese is pasteurised so I just made sure it was from a fresh packet and not one that had been open a while. The risk is fairly low for getting listeria. I still eat ham, have my steaks medium rare etc but I have a good butcher where I'm comfortable everything is really fresh and have it on the same day we buy it.
    In terms of party leftovers though, they could have been cut and left out at room temperature for quite a long time before being wrapped up and refrigerated again. This is a tough one as you don't really know how fresh it still is, though you'd get a pretty good idea but looking at it I guess!

    Yeah, I'll play it by ear. She did say the fruit was forgotten in the fridge. Might just eat cake. My friend goes with the uk standards of safe eating and theirs says deli meats etc is fine. The health and safety standards are so good these days that there is minimal minimal risk. In saying that she eats everything, including pΓ’te'.

    So do you eat Philly cheese? I just assume no soft cheese whatsoever.

    My thing is if I am in doubt, I microwave it beyond an inch of its life... Not that you can do that with all foods.

    I think I'm being unreasonably careful...

    I don't eat huge amounts of cheese normally anyway but I don't not eat them if we are out and there's a cheese platter going etc. We have DS birthday on the weekend and the icing on his cake is going to be a cream cheese icing!
    We use a free range organic butcher so their deli meats are nitrate free so again I'll eat it uncooked if bought fresh but cook it if it's been in the fridge a couple of days... Make pizza or toasted sandwiches etc

    Oh and I think pate is also fine in small doses, much like caffeine. High vitamin A has been linked to birth defects and caffeine to early miscarriages. Since I've had a few early loses I make the choice to avoid them but lots of people do still have them in small doses. Down to each individual's comfort levels really

    That's it isn't it. Whatever you are comfortable with.

    @Barca07 hope you are feeling better, I just drank plenty of honey and lemon as well as doing the Vicks vapour steam. @oliveoil it's so hard particularly when you are not telling people, I've been a bit naughty and normally it's without thinking but been more strict recently and more aware (it's so hard when there is lots you can't eat) it also helps when you are doing the cooking!

    AFM got results from NIPT and all low risk as they gave them over the phone I wanted to wait until our next appointment so DH is there when we get to know the sex. 12 week scan is on Friday so nervously waiting for that... We are going away at the weekend so hopefully we will be able to breathe a sigh of relief and celebrate a little!

    That's great news rarah11! When did you have the test done? Was it one done locally or sent to the USA for testing? How long did your results take to come
    Sorry lots of questions! Have mine next Tuesday and they say 3-5 days so I'm really praying I get the results before the weekend!
    Good luck for the scan too

    The USA and it took just under 2 weeks - would much prefer 3-5 days!

    Ah right, that's the one I did last time. Now there's a new on done locally here in Melbourne but I wonder how reliable their 3-5 days is!

    @oliveoil I understand your food worry!! I do exactly the same. However I am a ceoliac (cannot eat wheat & gluten) and have learnt the hard way you need to have complete control over everything you eat. I have had people make me things promised GF that has made me really sick. I couldn't risk it all while PG as if I got that sick I could lose the baby. Though I never make a big deal about eating others foods. If I got invited to a morning tea I would either eat before I went and just have a tea with the friend or I would bring something myself to share (or make something), less obvious but still total control. As far as the unsafe foods go I pretty much am happy to cut them all out except I have 1 coffee a day. The real struggle is feta, I used to eat it everyday in a salad and to think of 9 months without it is torture :-/ I also think if I didnt follow the guidelines and something happened whether it was related or not I would blame myself and thats not worth it for me. Plus all the hardwork it takes to get to this stage! Good luck with whatever you decide haha its a constant struggle for me trying to subtly be the "I cant eat that" person!
