    In answer to the OP, nope, I didn't have anyone tell me what to eat or suggest what I should whilst when pregnant, but I was pretty clued up with all the listeria risk foods etc, and therefore didn't seek advice either.

    I do however eat chilli in some form nearly everyday if I can, and of course that never stopped when I was pregnant, in fact I craved it even more, so a few times I had people comment on my eating chilli which I always found quite laughable and still don't understand how/why people would think you can't eat chilli whilst pregnant.

    I was told by my mum that I should eat ham and cold meats cos my sister was (pregnant at the same time but due 8 wks after).....she was pregnant with her fourth, this was my first after ivf and I said I wasn't comfortable due to listeria etc but she kept pushing it and we hsd an argument. Anyway, my sister has been sick for the last couple of weeks and they're testing her for listeria. ...no more ham and cold meats for her anymore. ...

    A lady at a cafe reminded me my muffin had ricotta in it once. I thanked her bc I hadn't thought of that. But then I confirmed it had been cooked and bought/ate it anyway.

    Other than that just other preg women who assumed I was eating the same stuff as them like vegetarian pizza vs meat pizza, I didn't think anything was wrong with that 1st preg so thought it was odd but went along with it. I learned more and was more careful 2nd preg and as a result ate less 'healthy' take away. Eg carbs bc at least that had less chance of listeria etc. I feel like I get to eat more healthy stuff out now I'm not preg I actually get excited about buying salad and sandwiches etc!

    I had a waitress at a cafe very politely ask me if I would like my baked eggs "a little more on the cooked side" - I was quite grateful for this, because I keep forgetting about eggs this pregnancy, and I actually hadn't considered how runny they might be, as I hadn't been to this place before. I took her up on the offer and was really glad that I had when I later saw the same dish (with the "normal" eggs) served to another customer.

    nope but I did get dirty looks when I went through a register with a 4 pack of mother (for my partner) and then waddled over to the smoke counter for a single pack of winnie blues (for my mother)

    I was like christ buy your own **** next time people!

    DH and I went to a very nice restaurant recently. Among the food ordered was sashimi. The waiter came back to the table to explain this was indeed raw fish and as I was pregnant he wanted to check I was aware of this.... Then when DH's drink came out and I smelled it, the same waiter came by laughing and asked if I was missing the taste of alcohol that much I needed to smell my DH's drink. I was quite affronted by the whole experience. I can't stand the don't eat this dony drink that brigade. The guidelines all have a context from which they should be taken but some idiots out there treat them as almost biblical matter.

    All the time by 'very caring friends', I just responded by saying I don't tell you what to eat and I don't think you should tell me either! That shut people up very quickly. It's really rude, it's your body. As if you are going to eat anything to harm your baby.

    Oh yes, a waitress told me I couldn't have the steak as it was served medium rare.
    I repeated my order, then she started to lecture me on safe food etc during pregnancy.

    I asked her whether she was lecturing overweight people if they were ordering a rich/fatty meal?!

    I would have left then and there. Makes me cranky just to imagine it! If anyone challenged my food choices I'd probably ask if they were an obstetrician, or what made them think they know better than my obstetrician.
