Re: The reason behind no sandwich meat.

I think occasionally, if you really crave it or something. But I really wouldn't risk it. There was that big listeria outbreak only a few years ago and several people died. And right now there's the beef recall. Imagine how'd you'd feel if somehow something did go wrong? I've had a miscarriage and I'd never want to go through that again. I'd never want to feel that somehow I was the cause of loosing my baby. Just not worth it. Take the few seconds to heat it up.

This is how I feel.

My midwife sorta made fun of me for following all the rules but I couldn't get past feeling like this.

I don't think anyone said anything about lunchmeat being a sign of a good or bad mom.

I think it's about anxiety.

Let's stay judgement-free. It's lunchmeat.

Re: The reason behind no sandwich meat.

I don't follow a lot of the "rules" (like, I drink caffeine, not huge amounts, but probably at least 2 sodas a day), but after doing a very small amount of research on this, I just can't bring myself to knowingly take the risk. I also can't stand the thought of warming my lunch meat. So, I just don't eat it while I'm pregnant.

That said, I have eaten it while pregnant. A few times here and there, I've REALLY craved it and caved. But, generally speaking, I just avoid it.

I'm glad you enjoyed it though.

The problem (for me) with this line of thinking is that it just starts to make me neurotic after awhile. Like the beef example, or e. coli in the spinach...anything could be contaminated, and so what do I eat without feeling guilty or scared? I've had a miscarriage too, and maybe this isn't typical, but it didn't matter what I ate, I still ran through every possible thing that could have been my fault. I'm not saying no rules our no changes in diet when I'm pregnant, but I can't go down the "what if" road, and I'm very comfortable that we all draw our lines in different places.

I think cold sandwiches are gross, but I have occasionally eaten more shellfish than recommended. And I do still have small amounts of caffeine often and Caesar salad here and there.

What is wrong with eating Caesar salad?
