Re: The reason behind no sandwich meat.
I ate meat and pretty much anything else I wanted during both my pregnancies and this one. I'm careful about the handling of my food but I personally feel like we (as a society) go a bit over board sometimes on this kind of thing. Like a PP said your chances of actually getting sick are not any higher than anyone else, you just have a weaker immune system and it could be worse for you. If you don't feel comfortable doing it, then I wouldn't but if you feel ok about it and the meat is not old or otherwise compromised I would go ahead and eat it.
