I have just found out I am pregnant and just wondering what everyones thoughts are about eating Christmas ham fresh carved off the bone. I know the risks with deli meats but just not 100% sure with regards to Christmas Ham.
I am only 3-4 weeks so we haven't told anyone yet and if I go heating up the ham the family will probably pick up straight away so im not sure whether to just go ahead and eat it or avoid it.

I think leg ham has the same risks as the other ham unfortunately. I didn't eat any of the high risk foods throughout my pregnancy but I couldn't resist on Christmas Day and had a slice of leg ham.

I would heat it or avoid it.

I agree heat or avoid

From the NSW food authority
- processed cold ham is not suitable for pregnant women, people with low-functioning immune systems or people older than 70 years, unless thoroughly reheated and eaten while hot

As long as you heat it and eat immediately it is ok. Also don't forget to be careful about pre-prepared salads that may have been sitting out un refrigerated for a while, I would be more worried about those!
Best wishes for your pregnancy.

I was 30 weeks 2 christmas' ago and i didnt heat the ham. Probably because it just looked sooo good and i just wanted some that wasnt heated for once. A friend of mine hasnt heated any of her meat her whole pregnancy and shes 30 weeks now. I guess you could look past the risks if you want too but if you are that worried then maybe just heat it up

^ I am making all the salad this year so I will know exactly how it has been handled. Mum is making potato salad just because she makes the best one ever, but has been given instructions to leave the bacon out and keep the whole thing very cold for me!

I don't think your "supposed" to but in saying that I think you'll be hard pressed to find "many" people who followed what they shouldn't eat to a T.
I myself couldnt avoid soft serves from maccas with both mine, though your not "supposed" to have them. Enjoy a slice or two. or heat it its completely up to you.
