Just pop the whole sandwich without veggies or dressings in the oven or toaster oven for a few. I was told its fine, but you have to heat the meat to kill bacteria.
As long as it's nitrate free
If it's warmed up or cooked your fine. Don't eat it cold.
Yeah I still eat it but on occasion. I only get it fresh cut from the deli not the precut and packaged ones
I'm 20 weeks and just recently started eating them I stayed away as long as possible I have turkey breat and such things though
I still eat it, I just make sure it is fresh.
If you look up the percentages of listeria deli meat is ranked pretty low on the concern list. The reason we avoid it is due to the risk of getting listeria but you can honestly get that from fresh fruits and veggies before deli meat. I've been eating deli meat for a lot of my pregnancy because it's one of the easiest ways I can get some food in. Research listeria and where it can be found and make informed decisions. It's up to you :)
Packaged deli meats still carry a risk of listeria even though they are treated with additives to help prevent it. Best to heat it up if you are going to have. Lox is also a no go unless you heat it up. Personally I don’t take the risk.
My OB said it’s fine to have it once in awhile not all the time. When I go to subway I get it toasted but I’ve had a sandwich that wasn’t toasted and I was fine. I usually crave sandwich meat but randomly just want a veggie delight from subway
The main reason to avoid deli meat is because of bacterial concerns. You can eliminate this by heating the meat up. Also any packaged deli meats are fine to eat. I personally have eaten it cold a few times throughout pregnancy when I really wanted Jimmy John’s because the risk of contamination if extremely low. However just be aware that listeria poisoning can be much more serious when pregnant.
I’ve been eating it - I eat it sometimes from a restaurant, or Jersey mikes, or Publix boars head. What I don’t do is buy a pack of turkey/ham/any other meat and keep it in the fridge to make my own sandwiches. I try to eat it as fresh as possible 🏼 and keep it to a minimum but ya girl has been craving it too! I probably have one every few weeks or so.
I personally decided that the risk was so low that I am okay to eat it. I usually go to subway and have always liked it toasted anyways. So I have literally had more subway sandwiches since being pregnant than in the past 5 years combined 😂 but that was my personal choice I made looking at the risks
You can have anything that’s already packaged bc it’ll be preserved, but if you get the freshly sliced from the deli you’d have to heat it before you eat it!
I eat it warmed or heated up for sure. Rarely in my case but like turkey breast I’ll ask it to be heated separately

I was the same way. It stayed down for a few hours but eventually it flared up my acid reflux and caused me the throw up the lining of my stomach 😞
I went to subway and got my sandwich toasted!
