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.
This is exactly true. I try not to go down the "what if's" road when it comes to food in pregnancy either, which is why I said I don't change a lot about my diet. But, unfortunately, on this particular issue, I read a story a while back about a pregnant woman who contracted listeria and her baby died. I usually stay away from those articles and threads online, but I read it in an office and it really stuck with me. So, on this one, I can't help but think "what if?" I can almost guarantee that if I hadn't read that I wouldn't worry at all about it. It's kind of annoying to me actually.

I'm not sure, but I'm thinking she is thinking about the anchovies in most Caesar dressing. I've never thought about that and eat Caesar without a second thought. I don't like Caesar that has a strong anchovy flavor though. Plus, I don't like any fish or seafood at all.
