So today I asked what I thought was a pretty simple question "Taco Bell or Publix sub" (Publix being our local grocery store that has AMAZING subs). While it began with people weighing in on the choices and at least one reminder that Taco Bell probably isn't the healthiest option for baby and me, (gee, thanks. ) it started to digress into a series of "friendly reminders" about the dangers of deli meat and how I'm going to die if I so much as step into the deli section of the store. (I know...exagerration) I read all of them, thanked them for their concerns, threw out a few websites so they could do their own research and then enjoyed my delicious sub.

What kinds of things have people felt the need to remind you of lately and how have you dealt with it?

Mmm now I want sushi.

I try and keep my "bad behavior" from most people just so I don't have to hear it. Lol

Yeah....I've spent the better part of the last 3 years doing this. I think I can handle it one more time.

I guess I should really do that, but I had NO clue that this kind of an innocent question would spark this ridiculousness. I don't go on other people's posts and tell them what they should or shouldn't do, so I assume other people will treat me the same way. Guess I'm just too naive to think that way.

No one says a word to me about this stuff. I'm on #4, I know what I should and shouldn't eat or drink. I'm not hyper vigilant about this stuff anyways. I had babies back when there weren't warnings about listeria and things like feta cheese. My nurse talked to me about cleaning litter boxes. I listened and thought - if I don't do it, who will? I've been cleaning litter boxes for over 20 years, if I was going to contract toxoplasmosis I would've by now. Besides, I don't pick up poop with my bare hands.

I have to say, no one has given me any "reminders" and I'm pretty naive as this is my first.. so it's surprising lol now that i've said that, i'm gonna be bombarded with them.

I got it pounded into my head from a pregnant co-worker not to eat deli meat to the point I'm terrified to have a turkey and cheese sandwich on toast with chips and a pickle spear...which I'M DYING TO HAVE!!! Then I later find out she went to Subway.... Someone tell me I can have my turkey sandwich!! It's not like I'm asking for a margarita and a cigarette...although that' d be nice if I could.

I'm sure one turkey sandwich won't kill you. Have them heat it if it makes you feel safer.

I was drinking a coke yesterday and my 4 year old says, "Mom if you're drinking coke does that mean the baby is getting coke? Coke isn't healthy for babies and kids". It's times like this that shows she actually does listen. Lol

I eat sandwiches quiet often. I don't see anything wrong with it and I haven't gotten listeria yet!! I also have a coke or two a day, I don't drink coffee so that's my exchange. If people have a problem with what I do, they can literally kiss my grits

If you're concerned about it, you can ask your deli about their policies about testing for listeria. The deli I go to does swab tests for it weekly and completes a full tear down of their meat cases so that everything can be sanitized.

I was just informed by a science teacher on that same FB thread I was telling you about that there's a concern about the nitrates used in processed meat and that she suggests I limit it for that reason. I through nitrates were only in bacon, pork and beef, but she says they use it as a preservative. Interesting, I had never heard that reason for avoiding it.

Nobody has given me any reminders, except my DD. She says you can't have any alcohol mom. I was carrying a bottle of blueberry syrup that looked like a whiskey bottle,lol. I told her I know, I have done this before. My midwife said it was fine to have an occasional sandwich or sub if you trust where it comes from and if I felt nervous, to heat it up. I haven't craved meat or lunchmeat yet, so no issues here, I actually went to subway the other day and had a veggie sub.

My favorite is the cat thing. Everyone thinks you can not change cat litter when you are pregnant, which is true, only IF you have indoor/outdoor cats.

The food thing, I eat everything i normally would including cold deli meat. 30 years old -- NEVER got sick from deli meat.

Someone call the mommy police, I had 1/3rd cup of wine the other night -- on my midwife's orders!

I work in a school for autistic kids, so i'm constantly being told what I should and shouldn't do. Its really aggravating because i've talked about everything with my doctor and know my limits. I carry lunch bags up for the kids (which i've been doing forever) and almost every day someone has to chime in on how I shouldn't be picking them up--when my doctor told it me it was fine for now. I wish people would mind their business.very now and then I have fast food breakfast or a small coffee and get hassled for that too :-\

I had a Male customer the other day tell me that I should stay very active, that it will help with labor.

Very sound advice i'm sure, but why this little pompous *** who is an accountant thinks he knows anything about labor and what makes it easier irritated the hell out of me. I thought maybe it was just the hormones.

That reminds me of this one time I declined soft cheese samples at my grocery store. The young man thought it was because I didn't like soft cheeses. I told him I wasn't supposed to while pregnant and he went into this long rant about how they hadn't mentioned anything about that in his nursing classes and that I should really trust him over my OB. Sure kid...
