Can You Eat Potted Meat When Pregnant
I ate a sandwich it was a cold cut but heated I'm 38weeks and I ate lunch meat is my baby okay? Why can't we eat lunch meat while pregnant? I'm worried
If the cold cuts were heated until they were "steaming hot" you have no reason to worry. Unheated lunch meats MAY contain listeria, a bacteria that causes listeriosis, an infection that pregnant women are more susceptible to. But know that most lunch meat does not have listeria, so you're probably OK if not well-heated but don't risk again:

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

NOT SAFE unless...:
Most lunch meats contain nitrites, a chemical that crosses the placenta & increases a baby's risk of brain tumors! See http://www. Livestrong. Com/article/344031-sodium-nitrite-pregnancy/ & http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/8824361
you may find nitrite-free lunch meats but I strongly advise eating only organic meats when pregnant:

I'm 11 weeks pregnant and wanted to know if it's safe to eat mangolian grill since the meat is sitting out for you to chose and they cook it for you.
Yummy: No food is perfectly safe in pregnancy or otherwise. Fortunately, the likelihood of something bad happening as a result of the consumption of well-cleaned, fresh food from a well-run restaurant is very low. In addition, mongolian grill is usually cooked at a high temperature. As long as it's thoroughly cooked, the risks go way down. ...Read more
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 more
At 7 months pregnant should I be concerned about listeria? I want to eat deli meat but don't want to pug baby at risk
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. Certainly not worth the risk during pregnancy. Cooked sushi or vegetable-only sushi should be fine, but then we'd worry about the person making the sushi having washed his hands after handling raw fish. ...Read more
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?
Unknown, prob. Fine:
As is often the case, there is little research on this subject. Some people say that goji berries contain betaine (; perhaps other compounds) that can cause miscarriage but if you did not have a miscarriage in the first 3 months it is unlikely now. Others recommend 10 gr/day- see http://www. Thesuperfoods. Net/goji-berry/should-you-take-goji-berries-during-pregnancy

Developed so many food allergies during last pregnancy (1yr ago) now I can't hardly eat anything but meat-could these go away if I got pregnant again?
More details: I am not aware of pregnancy creating food allergies and wonder what your reactions have been and to which foods. If you had severe morning sickness during the pregnancy, the reactions to food now may well be psychological. Consult an allergist if you want this problem resolved. ...Read more
I am 19 weeks pregnant. I didn't eat much vege, meat, milk in the last 10 days (was sick). Will baby be impacted due to lack of certain nutrition?
I doubt it: The impact of your daily nutritional choices/experiences are buffered by the placenta & your body. The baby gets to extract their needs from your system to the point your bones can be stripped of calcium if you don't consume enough. As long as your general health is good, you should look at eating as a way to restore what baby will take from your body. ...Read more

It depends on your current weight and the level of obesity. You should talk to your Ob about it. As long as you take in the essential vitamins and have a good mix of diet choices, you should be fine.

She should also avoid Klonopin, (clonazepam) as the baby can be born with a benzo addiction, which is very hard to come off...I would also recommend testing and treatment for MTHFR 677 & 1298 genotypes. Treatment is L-methylfolate, P5P, and methylcobalamin--all natural. Could explain Mom's anxiety and help! ...Read more
