Are cold foods safe to eat during pregnancy when microwaved? I just microwaved viennas. I'm 16 weeks pregnant.

In brief: Cold foods

It is best to make certain the foods consumed in pregnancy are cooked thoroughly, as bacterial illnesses like Listerosis can cause problems in pregnancy.
The symptoms are those of common "food poisoning" (diarrhea, nausea, vomiting) but see your OB physician for treatment if symptoms develop, as some food born infections are more serious in pregnancy.
