Re: Do you go out of your way to avoid Listeria with all your Pregnancies?

No. I am reasonably cautious but really, I don't worry about it - I was so terribly ill through the first five and a half months of my first pregnancy that I just gratefully choked down whatever I could stomach after that.

Same goes for this pregnancy. I can barely way anything even when I want to, so if I suddenly want lunch meat, that's what I eat.

Re: Do you go out of your way to avoid Listeria with all your Pregnancies?

like the majority of the other mamas, i dont avoid any of these things, either, and havent with any of my pregnancies. one mama also mentioned that many years ago these things werent mentioned- i have a 14 yr old and didnt hear about this stuff at all, but with my 6 yr old i did start to notice the warnings. with my current pregnancy i was shocked to also read about taking hot baths during the first trimester--something i did with each kiddo!

raw cheese - check
smoked salmon - check
delicious pink prosciutto when we went to france in march - check check! i was getting so much of it from the butcher near our rental apt that he ended up telling me i was pregnant with "fille", meaning girl. he was right!

I still eat whatever I want (including sushi and soft serve ice cream) but all in moderation. And I don't eat sashimi anyway, just the rolls.

With my first two I didn't even know about it, but this time I have been avoiding it. I really don't like meat anyway so its not too hard for me to avoid it really.

I've never changed my diet when pregnant.

Depending on what rolls you are choosing it is basically the same raw fish inside . In fact Sashimi is usually higher quality because it has to be cause you can see it.

Like others have said, I do avoid Listeria but I don't change my diet. I eat anything I want. I just don't eat sushi or cheese because I'm the one person on the planet that doesn't like those things lol.

I avoid lunch meat, raw fish sushi and unpasturized cheese/dairy.

I do eat soft serve ice cream because I can't help myself and have eaten it all my life without an issue.

I don't. You're also more likely to get listeria from fruit than meats or sushi(sushi is practically unheard of since the meat is flash frozen) and there's no way I'm avoiding fruit.

Why do people keep saying to avoid soft serve ice cream... isn't that all sugar?
