    my nurse also said listeria has been cropping up in bagged lettuce, so she told me to chop my own lettuce instead of buying bags.

    The other day I went to Subway for lunch and got the steak, egg and cheese. It was so yummy! I love that they serve eggs during the day. You could also have there meatball sub, but it just doesn't sound good right now.

    I'm always the crazy lady who asks Subway to microwave the meat first. They look at me like I'm insane. :P

    I've eaten subway many times since becoming pregnant, had it last night. Their meats are precooked already and just tell them to toast it for an extra few seconds and they will. It comes out steaming hot.

    I don't think the issue is lunch meat not being pre-cooked; it's that lunch meat is higher risk for contamination with listeria which i think is due to standard practices of packaging/storing of the meat.

    After DD was born our friends wanted to buy us dinner and bring it to the hospital. They were thinking something fancy like sushi or rare steak, but all I wanted was Jimmy Johns! And MAN, was it good or what!

    I tend to be the odd one out on this topic. My friend ate lunch meat everyday during her pregnancy and her doctor told her it was fine. My midwife hasn't mentioned it to me and it wasn't in my packet of "things to avoid." I have read about it on the internet though. I will admit to having 2 deli sandwiches since being pregnant. Both times were before I told my bosses I was pregnant and we all went out to eat together. Please don't shoot me. I've also accidentally eaten feta and blue cheese. But man was it tasty!

    I do try to avoid it, but given that my friend ate it everyday, I'm thinking its less of a big deal than everyone makes it out to be.

    One question I have is if I ordered pepperoni pizza and save some for the next day, does it have to be reheated because of possible listeria?

    If it does, I'm screwed!

    My NP didn't put a huge emphasis on the lunch meat thing simply because it's such a LOW possibility.. plus it happens with other foods. You can't stop eating..

    I think the bottom line for me is to be smart.. I'm a HUGE fan of raw meat. Obviously that's not safe even when not pregnant so now that I am, if I can't have my raw steak, I simply stay away.

    I'm with you though.. if I want a damn lunch meat sandwich, I'm gonna have me a lunch meat sandwich! lol..

    When I was preg with DS The ONLY thing I could keep down was lunch meat. AND the thought of heating it to steaming made me gag. (always has) I can say I did eat lunch meat my ENTIRE pregnancy, AND hotdogs. (hamburgers make me sick) My mom ate all that stuff when she was preg with me and no probs, but also I figured if it was the only thing that didnt come back up I was going to eat it. and I CRAVED it. yes I got lots of crap for eating it BUT when you go 11+ weeks and can't eat anything... I took the risk to get SOMETHING in me. (and it was good) it also helped my reasoning bc there was a huge listeria outbreak in our area at the same time... and it was from cantalope. but no one was telling the pregnant women to stop eating their fresh fruits...... but you have to do what you are comfy with. I had a friend preg right after me and she wouldnt touch deli meat.

    I just ate cold pizza. Hmm... Oh well! I'm like a few of you, MW nor OB has said ANYTHING about listeria, I've just seen it on the internet. I haven't had any lunch meat - but I'm not a big lunch meat fan anyways. If I wanted a sandwich, ...I'm probably gonna eat it.
