    Thanks Ladies for your contributions, likewise I am having a freak out as I attended a work lunch at a local Indian restaurant today. I thought samosas and a naan would be my safest bets. I asked for no garnish, but the samosas came out on a bed of shredded cabbage. I did want to send them back, as I thought they would just replace them. So I cut the bottoms off and ate the rest. Now I too hav been googling myself stupid.

    Should I contact my Ob?

    Default So stupid and now so worried.

    I don't think you need to contact your OB. They aren't going to do anything, just sit down and have (would normally say a glass of wine) something you're allowed to have
    And don't stress x.

    Thanks Jellyfish. Most kind of you to reply. I have calmed down now, bit definitely will be avoiding the samosas served on cabbage in future. X

    Just try to remember that contracting a Listeria infection (Listeriosis) is extremely rare! Even while pregnant.


    Around 5 people per 1,000,000 of the "general" population contract it each year (0.0005%)
    The occurrence is higher in pregnancy by about 20 fold, sounds alarming I know, but the risk is still stupidly low!
    The scientific figures from numerous studies around the world show that 1 in 10,000 pregnant women contract a Listeria infection per year (0.01%)


    Compare it to the chance of you falling down some stairs or having a car accident that results in harm to your fetus!

    Is avoiding all these foods worth the increased risk of nutritional deficiencies compared to the risk of Listeriosis?

    Thanks Kelly, I am aware the risks are minimal. That said, having lost two babies, endured multiple unsuccessful IVF cycles and now finally being blessed with a pregnancy after going all the way to South Africa for an egg donor program, I in no way wish to jeopardise this pregnancy. I am happy to eat any salads etc prepared at home, but think I can safely do without the samosas

    What a journey, laned. Good luck with the rest of your pg. I totally get why you wish to play it safe! Fingers are crossed for you, although I don't think you'll need MY crossed fingers. I reckon you probably have every one of your own digits crossed.
    Keep smiling and focused positively on your goal, and enjoy your pg.
