Probably;listeriosis: if the cold cuts were heated until they were "steaming hot" you have no reason to worry.

Sushi & pregnancy.: Sushi should be avoided during pregnancy for two reasons. (1) risk of bacterial infection complicating the pregnancy. (2) risk of exposure to mercury complicating the pregnancy.

11 week pregnancy. Can my wife eat a grilled meat product (beef) such as steak ? If yes what is the limitations ? Also the recommended cooking method
Yes!: Beef is a good protein source, and grilling reduces fat, besides making it delicious! that might be important if she is still nauseous. But the minimal impurities induced by grilling meat are not of concern unless all she eats is grilled beef! what she needs to watch is consumption of certain kinds of fish (mercury). A proper balanced diet and prenatal vit. Are great. No alcohol or tobacco please! ...Read more

Are 10-15 gr of goji berries per day safe in pregnancy? So far, i've taken this amount every day (i don't eat meat):is my pregnancy(4 month)in danger?

I had a positive pregnancy test this morning i'm someone who doesn't like to eat a lot of meet I still eat meat but I per not too. Is there anything I can eat that will give the same nutrition?
Balanced diet: Meat is not essential for a good diet. A diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains and dairy will provide adequate nutrition. To increase protein in your diet you should add tofu, beans, nuts and egg whites. I trust that you are taking pre-natal vitamins, if you were not taking these, do so asap. Keep your appointments with your OB for pre-natal checks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
