    Thanks for all the responses! I've calmed down a bit now and will just be careful. It's about the only thing I've eaten that I shouldn't have so fingers crossed. Had an ultrasound yesterday at 34 weeks and bubs was fine.

    It's a minefield out there of trying to figure out which info to take on board and what to not stress about. I'm American and my first two pregnancies were in OZ, both countries have pretty much the same guidelines in terms of foods to avoid but now we're in London and they're totally fine with deli/cold meats and smoked salmon, no warning at all. I've decided to stick with US and OZ guidelines but it's just odd and kinda confusing that a country with a similar culture has different guidelines. I base my decision on the fact that for a developed nation the UK has an embarrassingly high stillbirth rate and they also don't do routine screenings on pregnant women like they do in OZ (ie they don't test for group B strep) so I feel they aren't very thorough in their level of care and would rather stick with what I know.

    I found some Cheese when pregnant that wasn't pasteurised.....but if is, the softer cheeses are more prone to listeria and food borne illness than hard cheeses....

    Agreed! It is very hard to know what to take on board. Also, I find that different people stress about different things. For example, my best friend is also pregnant and she was freaking out about whooping cough whereas I wasn't too worried - I got the jab and all good! I know this isn't food related, but funny how people worry and put emphasis on different things.
    I've heard that about the UK! My friend is a nurse and she said they were really surprised when they were there by the amount of stuff just left out on benches at take away shops etc.
    I've also heard about the lack of tests. Interesting!
