  • Not mine... she say's it's because of the lysteria bacteria in them, and I should heat up the meat for 15 minutes...but it's all in moderation.

  • 15 minutes?! I've never heard a Dr say that long...everyone I've ever talked to about it said 15 seconds in the microwave is fine (or until steaming if you do it on the stovetop). I'm not big on deli meat as it is, but I'd be pissed if my Dr said I couldn't have Subway lol

  • Believe me....I was highly depressed over it...
    Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
  • Wow!! I've had 3 toasted Italian sandwiches and about 4 hot dogs... so don't feel so bad. My OB is ok with it though.
  • I had a turkey sub for dinner.  And an Italian sub last week.  They were both delicious.

    Deli meat does not have listeria bacteria in it.  It could possibly get contaminated with listeria if it is not handled/stored properly or if it is old.  As long as you are getting your deli meat from a reputable place(preferably a busy place that goes through a lot of meat) then there is not much to worry about. You have a better chance of getting struck by lightning or getting in a serious car accident than getting listeria. 

    Get Boars Head meats.  It's the best you can get.

  • I eat a turkey sandwich for lunch every single day.

  • I think she meant 15 seconds not minutes lol.

     

    I totally had a ham and cheese sandwich today and it was divine. I have one about once a week or so. 

  • My doctor want me to stay away from it more in the 3rd trimester since thats when its more harmful for the baby.  I do cheat or forget until I am done eating it.  But moderation is the key to everything.  So go and eat hot dogs and subway I say lol Smile

  • Why would your OB care? I've never had an OB tell me I couldn't eat anything, except for raw fish and no drinking.  

    Eat it up. I eat sandwiches all the time and have two perfectly healthy boys. : )

    I miss sushi the most Crying

    image image Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker BabyName Ticker
  • i miss sushi too!!!! -but i never ate the raw sashimi anyway

    is the sushi with cooked meat/no meat really that bad for pregos???

    (maybe have to take out the cream cheese on some...) 

  • I eat lunch meat, hot dogs, medium rare steaks, soft cheeses and cooked sushi! ::gasp::

    As long as your food is handled properly and stored at proper temperatures you should be good to go. The only thing my doctors have said to me was no alcohol and watch the amount of fried/junk foods.

  • I ate deli sandwiches throughout both of my pregnancies and all turned out fine.  Where I work there aren't a lot of options- it's that or fast food, and I felt that a sandwich was the healthier choice.  My doc never even brought up what I eat as an issue in either pg...

    wow, two totally untrue statements.   after 15 min. the meat would be like shoe rubber! i hope she has a clue about things that matter!

    This! However, with my first PG I didn't have a Sammie until my 2nd tri.... Then I would have them 1 every other week... BY my third tri it's all I could handle.... You'll find your vices and choose your "evils" (lol). It is true fresher is best, low sodium etc etc. But if youre a healthy eater go for it.if you're housing junk foods, caffeine, fast foods etc then deli meat isn't gonna hurt you like everything else will. You'll be fine stay with a clean fast place deli and enjoy every bite. How often is up to you.

    yeah, i was told like 30-40 seconds, until it's steaming.  and as much as i love lunch meat in my sammiches, nothing is grosser than hot lunch meat!  don't tell my OB but i had three small sips of champagne tonight after my (now) fiance proposed!  that's the only alcohol i'll be treating myself to during pregnancy so i figure three small sips shouldn't be too bad.

    Hmm When they say no sushi they mean the raw stuff.  Cooked/no meat rolls are perfectly fine.  Why would you have to take out the cream cheese??  There is nothing wrong with cream cheese. 

    Where do you people hear these ridiculous thing about what you can't eat...

  • Wow.... While y'all are at it, maybe you should know you're not supposed to eat soft serve ice cream too....lol... I definitely ignored that one

    Quote I found on a website that is fairly accurate:

    About 6 million people will get pregnant this year.  1/3 of 2500 cases this year will be in pregnant women.  So what is your chance of getting this disease? .013%.  What are your chances of dying in a car accident? .015%  So, you are more likely to die in an accident than get listeriosis.   Now, you don?t want to  partake in risky behavior.  No driving while blindfolded, and no licking raw chicken.  But do you never get into a car while pregnant?  No, you just make good choices.  Your favorite sushi restaurant where you know they get the fish fresh at the market might not pose as much risk as you think.  You have a craving for your favorite brand of brie cheese?  Yea, statistically you could cause your infant harm, but so do people who breath in the air in Los Angeles.

  • GASP!!! How dare you! jk. That was the first thing my doctor's office said NOT to do. I had two turkey lunchmeat sandwiches prior to that that wouldn't stay down a until I finished the sandwich :(. I miss them too. My new friend is the melt at Subway (ham, turkey, bacon toasted with mozzerella...yum!). I figured since it's toasted it's okay.

  • I'm betting your OB meant heat it up for 15 seconds.  I was told 30 seconds in the microwave, or get the sandwich toasted.  I eat sandwiches/subs all the time - I just get them toasted.

    And ditto the Boar's Head meat

    ditto this--just preferably not from a subway--but if i keep it in my own fridge so its always cold she has no issues

    I also dont eat red meat, wont eat large chunks of meat and hate beans so its pretty much a "I dont give a rats...just get some protein"
