Bechamel is basically flour, butter and milk so should be fine, turkey should also be fine as long as it was cooled quickly and stored in the fridge.

The guidelines on alcohol vary frequently, I think at the moment the government advises that pregnant mothers do not drink any acohol at all but only you can make that decision.

I personally had an occasional glass of wine in pregnancy and had a glass of champers at christmas too, that doesn't mean to say that it was the right thing to do but it was a personal choice that I made.

thanks bells
but is that all that bechemel sauce is? i thought it would be cheesey and i think my parents leave the turkey out once cooked overnight but with foil over it then once cut plated and covered in foil

and as im not a drinker i think ill pass on booze anyway

thanks again

Yes, basic bechamel is just that, a basic white sauce to which other favours are added. Cheese can be added (this is how you make cauiflower cheese), herbs etc.... so maybe they use some cheese in there too. Either way it's safe. :)

I can't see that any of the ingredients would be problematic in any kind of bread. Having looked at a naan recipe I can say for definite that it's fine.

HELP!!!!

i stupidly ate a pizza with pepproni and parma ham on it last night then i started to worry as we left the restaurant that is something i should not eat.

my cousin gave me 2 books when i was pregnant before so i dug them out and in one it says to avoid raw or undercooked meat like pork and steak - the other says avoid raw meat like salami and pastrami YIKES!

my thinking is that as my meat was heated on a pizza it should have killed any germs?

the problem seems to be catching toxoplasma which can cause blindness or brain defects! it says 20% of women are immune to it and you can be tested and drugs given if you have it.

omg i am so silly.

Please don't worry about this for a second longer, you really won't have harmed your baby. Think about all the women who don't even realise they are pregnant and carrying on with life as normal with no ill effect.

The night before I found out I was having DD1 I ate oysters, rare steak, blue cheese and had a skin full. She is happy and healthy :D

Thanks Rivka,

i know there is such a slim chance something to come from this. i am annoyed that i let my standards slip, i've been doing well up to now!

i will be extra cautious from now on. on one website i just found it says it is ok if cooked on pizza so i feel a bit better reading that!

however, just looked at the ham in the fridge and it is dry cured not cooked, i can't remember if i have had any when pregnant or not. DH normally has it in his sarnies.

i feel like i was so good during treatment and now i am finding it a bit hard trying to be so healthy. but this scare has brought it home how important it is to stay healthy.

I know it's hard but try not worry! Pizza toppings are always cooked so they are fine.
I'm pretty sure that the ham is fine too :happy:

Hi,

I saw my consultant on Friday and he advised me to eat 4 portions of dairy a day!

He said the baby will take calcium from your teeth and bones whether you've got enough for yourself or not.

He said to have milkshakes and iceceam!! If he says so, then I must!!

He also told me to really look after my teeth as they soften slightly. Never go to bed without brushing them. Not that we'd do that anyway.

This is very true. I must admit that my teeth have never recovered from pregnancy, I've always looked after them but during two pregnancies and for a year after each I must've been at the dentist .... about ooohhh.... 25-30 times!

At least it's free when you're pregnant ... :rolleyes:

I have only just realised that I am able to eat Feta cheese....can't tell you how happy I am! I was under the impression that it was on the no list but read in my "bounty" pack yesterday that it's on the safe list....and then checked on this site too and there it is in the safe list too.......hooray! I love Feta cheese and have been desperate to eat some....guess what I am having this evening!
I did actually eat some Feta when I was preg with #2 , in the last month, as it said it was pasteurised and I figured I would take the risk (did I mention how much I love Feta!). So happy to know it's safe now!
I better have another look at the safe list and see what other things I have been avoiding for no reason!

brazil nuts

I feel a bit of a fake being here as it still hasn't sunk in.

I am just looking for a bit of advise, during stimms and 2ww I have been eating brazil nuts as I read it helps to strengthen your lining. Can anybody tell me if it is still safe to do this as of course nuts are supposed to be a no no.

Thanks

Hi Ali, and congratulations on your BFP. As far as i am aware its ok to eat nuts as long as you dont have any allergy/asthma in the family, most of the pg woman i know dont eat peanuts but eat all the other ones. hope that helps. x

Brazil nuts are fine - they (along with almonds) are a good source of iron which you can become deficient in when you're pg. Peanuts are generally the only thing which it is said to avoid (nut wise!)

Hi Ali....I too presumed it meant ALL nuts when I was preg with my 1st and avoided them all then discovered right at the end that it was only peanuts I'd had to avoid....grrrr! Brazil nuts are really good for you.....I often have the chocolate covered ones as a treat!!! Tasty!

eaten blue cheese by accident!

i have just got home from having a nice meal at an italian with dh and it dawned on me that i wasn't sure if what i had was 'safe'.

i only flaming ordered a pasta with a gorgonzola sauce which is a blue cheese! didn't taste like blue cheese though.

i am so upset with myself, i would never forgive myself if i have harmed my 2 babies. think dh is a bit annoyed with me (said he didn't know what was in mine when i ordered).

i have just read up that cooking blue cheeses 'should' kill off any listeria. also a blood test can detect whether i have it. should i ask my gp for the test?

also, as i get mild hayfever my mw told me to avoid nuts so from 10 weeks i have stopped eating them. but should i avoid products that say ' this product may contain nuts'? if so i thnk i will go nutty.

i feel very paranoid and upset. i can't believe i have a degree!

Seriously you HAVE NOT harmed your babies in anyway. They are very well protected. For a starter a gorgonsola sauce is cooked so what little risj there could be is removed by that process.

I'm going to merge this thread with another one that you can have a look through to see that lots of people have done exactly this and gone on to have happy, bouncy, healthy babies. I personally wouldn't bother traipsing to the gp but i suppose if it stops you worrying it can't actually hurt.

ok, this will make you laugh! i just looked up the menu on the net and it didn't have gorgonzola in it! no wonder it didn't taste like blue cheese! just put myself through mental torture for the last hour and a half for nothing! reason i probably got muddled is because i nearly ordered the one with gorgonzola in it!

now i'm REALLY questioning how i got a degree!

Deep fried camembert?

I'm assuming this is ok given that the cooking would kill off any potential risk of listeria? Anyone know for sure?
