So I always thought the answer to this question was, "Yes, of course! With gusto!" However, today I talked to my doc about an upcoming vacation and she said be sure you don't eat ground beef or salami - however cheese (even soft) and sausage (like hotdogs) are okay.
What?!?! I guess I should add that I live in Germany and so this is all funneled through my fair/poor German. This is my second baby and I thought I'd figured out all the "rules" while I was pregnant with my first. I guess since I was pregnant with DD in the US the rules/culture of childbearing are different. Who knew?!
