  • Thats the way I eat it all the time! As long as it isn't rare, it shouldn't hurt you!

  • My doctor said all meats were to be well done during pregnancy. My DH was such a freak about it! He practically made my steaks into beef jerky while I was pregnant. LOL.

    You also should cook your lunch meat to steaming, just FYI, for the same reasons that meat should be well done during pregnancy.
