Accidentally breaking the food rules

Ladies: if you eat break the “rules” on don’t eat sushi, lunch meat, undercooked meat, etc.. DONT panic!! Let me clarify this. The reason they want you to err on the side of caution is because if you were unlucky enough to get sick while pregnant, you’d be more at risk. Not that it’s a guaranteed risk. Bacteria doesn’t become more present or suddenly exist just because you are now pregnant. They just want to make sure you’re aware that if you were to catch anything.. it could be potentially more dangerous. Stay safe. Monitor yourself. You’ll be okay!!♥️

My OB said right off the bag that if you eat these things sparingly it’s completely fine. Now if you tend to want a deli meat sandwich every meal for days at a time then you should maybe worry. She said to buy the freshest kind and eat in moderation. She also said the same for coffee, if it’s part of my normal routine then don’t change. Again if I was drinking 3-4 espressos a day then maybe cut back. Also, she said the coffee will help You poop 😂 so no need to stop it!

What about coffee? I'm so tired with a toddler, I basically can't function without it. I feel guilty, but baby seems to be doing great.

Can you eat takeaways?? So like Chinese & Indians. This is my first pregnancy and I’m trying to be strict, coffee is my main thing! I used to have 2-4 cups a day now down to two.
