Re: Foods on the no-no list during pregnancy.

I ate everything while pregnant, including sushi (raw) and sandwich meat (though I usually microwaved it for a few seconds). There was a large listeria outbreak linked to canteloupe a few months ago, just saying sometimes you really can't know what foods are safe. I know most moms don't take any chances, I just am not like that. I also drank a glass of red wine once a week while pregnant, though I always had it with a large dinner (usually consisting of rare steak, lol). I don't think I avoided anything, except maybe a lot of mercury, but I tend to prefer low mercury seafood anyway like trout or mussels. I also didn't pay much attention to whether cheese was pasteurized, if it was made fresh locally that was more important to me. No flames please, I'm not saying everyone else should do what I do.
