Seriously. If I could have one cold turkey sandwich, without having to heat it up, I could probably go the rest of the pregnancy without one. Probably.

I tried to look up if Jimmy Johns is safe since they cut their meat fresh daily and are super clean, but there wasnt a general consensus I know if I eat a cold turkey sandwich and something happened to my baby I would blame myself. But, before getting pregnant, I would eat a cold cut a few times a week and I NEVER got sick. Being pregnant I've been heating the turkey up whenever I want a turkey sandwich, and even letting it cool back down when I want it cold, but I kid you not it changes the flavor.

Also, doesnt help that DH is completely oblivious to my dilemma because hes playing that daggone game of his instead of paying attention to me. He stayed home from work yesterday because he's sick and what'd he do? PLAYED GAMES MOST OF THE DAY. gdajklsnflvnfslvjn!!! Stupid husband. Stupid turkey. Stupid hormones. I think I'm going to get some ice cream to make myself feel better *sigh*

I wouldn't do it. I crave sandwiches and just heat them up continuously. I have every pregnancy. Especially when my BFF in NC told me that when she was PG with DD2 she ate chicken salad, cold sandwiches, and eggs with runny yolks almost daily and when she went in for her 26 week appointment they couldn't find a HB, did an u/s to discover that she her HB had stopped but was measuring on target, so rushed her for an emergency c/s and her DD was in the NICU for months. Not sure if they were related, but I won't chance that.

Oh my! I would LOVE a deli sandwich right now. I ate them with my other pregnancies, but I'm not risking anything this time. I would even love a PB&J, but I can't have that (I have one child with a peanut allergy and I read that because of that I should stay away from peanuts while preggers). The only sandwiches I have been eating are egg salad (prepared and stored properly right here at home), and don't get me wrong, I love egg salad, but if I'm going to be living on that for the next six months I am going to get sick of it. LOL!! I want turkey and chicken and peanut butter!! ...but not all at the same time.

These are one of the rules that I do follow as I had a friend who lost her baby because of listeria, I'm just SO paranoid about it because I never thought that COULD happen, but it does and that's why they a warning about it. Knowing my luck, the ONE time I caved was the one time that I got sick. I do know lots of friends who never followed it and did fine, it's just one of those things for me.

I will say this. I hate hot dogs. Like beyond hate them. The only time I want them is when I'm pregnant and they are on the do not eat list. So I go the whole 9 months without one. Cravings suck, but they have those warnings for a reason. And the guilt you would feel if you caved and something happened can never be taken back.

I may be way wrong and am certainly no dr but I LIVE off lunch meat. It is a regular part of my diet.
I have eaten a couple turkey sandwiches and am good so far.. idk I know a lot of the precautions we take are excessive. We don't want to risk our baby's health. But if you think about it other countries like France.. they drink wine and eat cheese through their pregnancies and their babies turn out just fine..
Japan.. eat sushi and their babies are super healthy. Just my .2

Dh and I were out of town the other day and I totally forgot and we split a turkey sub. I remembered after a few bites and stopped eating it but I'm still paranoid. It's one of the few rules I do follow, or try to.

Side note, would I know if I had contracted listeria? Would I be sick? Or is one of those symptom-less things?

Yeah I think you'd have a fever, nausea, diarrhea and maybe muscle aches

Here's my thing, American's tend to do things differently than other countries. In Europe they condone drinking during pregnancy, yet in America we advise against it due to alcohol poisoning. In Europe they smoke during pregnancy, once again Americans don't because of birth defects that can occur from this.

The warnings are there not because they will happen to EVERY person, but because they can happen. And you could be one of those lucky people it will never happen to, yet another person, even someone in here could sit there and go well they are doing it so I will too, and something bad happen.

We all do what we feel is best for us and our babies. That's what moms do. But if there is a warning to avoid something there is a reason for it. Even if you are unaffected this time, what about the next time? As I said, my friend ate the items that were advised not to eat with her pregnancies and almost lost her youngest daughter. She didn't read the books for the warnings and her doctor never told her what foods to avoid and it almost cost her.

Not always, but often you are symptom-less. An adult generally can handle listeria. We fight it off pretty easily normally. So it can affect the baby without you knowing you even have it.

I know the feeling! I haven't had deli meats since before I was pregnant and I've been craving a Subway ham and swiss sandwich or a turkey, bacon and avocado. Yum. But I agree, it's better safe than sorry.

I DO indulge in the occasional chili dog that I keep craving. I get all beef kosher hot dogs (just because they taste better and are better quality) and I only eat them steaming hot, so since you can eat deli meats after it's heated, I don't really see the difference. Isn't it just because of listeria pretty much the same as deli meats?

yes, hotdogs carry the same listeria risk. And you can eat them cooked, same as lunch meat

I actually don't remember the reason for Hot Dogs. I just remember them being on the do not eat list. And I do Hebrew Nationals for the kids, so they are kosher and all beef, but I don't want to possibly risk anything. I never want them not pregnant, and my kids aren't big on hot dogs anyways, so it's not something we keep in the house. I actually try to abide by every rule that they have in the book.
