    Default Pregnancy and food questions

    Well, even though this is our 7th pregnancy there are still plenty of foods that I am unsure of and just avoided during my other pregnancies. I thought if I come on here and ask people here that someone would know.

    So first food off the top of my head...

    Philly cream cheese - yes or no?

    Cheesecakes - is it only the uncooked ones because of the raw egg. Are the cooked ones fine?

    I'm sure there are others, but I can't think of them right now.

    Philly cheese is fine, it's only unpasteurized cheese you should avoid.

    Raw egg should be avoided, I don't believe any cheesecake has raw egg though.

    Other foods include: deli meats, soft serve ice cream, sushi, left overs, pre-made salads, raw/uncooked meat or fish.

    I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can think of ATM.

    Left overs are fine within 24hrs, just nuke them in the microwave.

    Unbanked cheesecake doesn't normally have egg in it so it is fine to eat. Leftovers are ok as long as they are stored correctly, reheated to piping hot and eaten within 24 hours.

    You should be wary of pre-made sandwiches from caf├ęs, etc because you can't be sure how long ago they were made and that they've been stored correctly. Anything you make yourself is fine as long as it's eaten within 24 hours and if it's leftovers heated through in the microwave.

    Although leftovers eaten within 24 hours and piping hot are fine, I believe the exception is chicken. Chicken should only be eaten freshly cooked and hot. Not chilled or reheated the next day.

    I accidentally ate some Aoli sauce last night with dinner. I didn't think about it till later that it would have been made with raw egg.
    Do you think baby will be ok?

    I'm sure the baby will be fine. Depends on the cafe/restaurant, but aioli can also be made with powdered eggs. Try not to worry too much about it. If you are really concerned, or feel unwell in any way, give your midwife or doctor a call.
