Okay okay, I'm exaggerating (baby's fault). BUT, he's telling me no to everything I suggest! It goes a little something like this:
Me: I want crab legs so bad
Him: No shellfish for you
Me: Brie sounds delicious
Him: You can eat anything unpasturized
Me: I miss sushi
Him: Too bad
Me: Dallas (my five year old), give me a bite of your ham sandwich
Him: No lunchmeat allowed!
Me: I'll take my steak rare
Him: No, she'll have it well done, thanks
Ugh. I've been sick sicky sick for a week now, and everything that sounds good is bad for the baby! Do they design pregnancy that way??!! I'm going to have to live off Pirates Booty for eight and a half more months...
End rant. Thank you for listening

I have always eating lunch meat through my pregnancies? i have never been told its a no no, ill have to check that up maybe i should read through the do's and don't s again! its so hard to remember everything when pregnant
That is sweet your DH knows and cares. Mine is not up on the food and does not seem to care what I lift but he is very cautious about chemicals. I am not allowed to touch the pool stuff and I doubt I will get to stain the fence boards we have on order.
Its not exactly lunch meat you cant have its deli meat, but if cooked to 165 degrees F its fine, I ate ham, turkey, chicken, roast beef whatever after I wasnt sick with my pregnancies...I am pregnant with #5 and all my babies are fine.
The lunchmeat issue is the risk of listeria. If you heat your lunch meat up to steaming, then you kill the bacteria. Also, if it is fresh, the risk is greatly reduced. Listeria can pass through the placenta and affect the baby and the mom may not even show effects of the bacteria. Most people process listeria without any issues. I have eaten sandwhichs and hotdogs during my pregnancies, but I do heat them up.
