    My midwife told me I'd be more likely to be hit by a car then suffer the effects of listeria.


    Its all about using good judgement. If you've eaten it already, there's not much that can be done. The risks are extremely low but there are risks. It wasn't too long ago that there were sandwiches on a domestic flight that were contaminated with listeria. Two pregnant women on that flight went on to have their babies prematurely. So it happens.

    A lot of the foods that may carry risk can still be enjoyed piping hot or if prepared at home. I'm addicted to camembert cheese so I have been baking it in the oven till it's steaming and dipping bread in it.

    I'm currently pregnant with #3 and have definitely relaxed a lot but if I remember, then I usually avoid.

    When I was pregnant it was interesting watching my older sisters who's kids are in their 20's scoff at me not wanting to eat certain foods, they just couldn't get their head around the new rules. For me I was too scared to eat anything on the no no list, but, I did eat a small amount of feta that was on a bruschetta my sister made and I did have poached eggs on 2 occasions because I craved it, and we all know those cravings are real. The day after I gave birth I had sushi and a maccas thick shake delivered to my room, those I missed the most, especially the thick shake in summer!

    I had a steak cooked well done during pregnancy and it was terrible! It wasn't until I was giving birth that the midwife told me I could have had it medium rare and it would have been fine. Ha ha, thanks for the late notice!
