  • I'm a little lost as to your question. Why would you have to heat your turkey sandwich? You were'nt eating raw poultry right? The meat was cooked, yes?
    But as far wantign things we can't have while pregant, with my last two ALL I wanted was sushi. Heaping plates of raw fish. I never gave in, but boy did I want to!

  • I had a turkey sandwich, it was cold but pre-cooked I was just being silly cause the pregnancy advice is to heat it up before hand.

  • I don't think one dose of something that is a no-no for pregos will hurt any of us. I craved alcohol at one point with my son, and no I'm not an alcoholic no I did not drink. I wanted cold cuts and tacos covered in tomatoes and lettuce with lots of sour cream. With my girl I craved anything sweet, I knew I was having a girl before they even told me.

  • I never even heard of that rule about heating a sandwich before you eat it...I first heard it the other day, so this is the 2nd time! I guess I'm guilty cuz I ate a lot of unheated sandwiches in both my pregnancies. lol. Oh, and I never gave up Diet Coke...but I did cut WAY back (to only 1 can a day from 3.)

  • I just had a huge turkey sandwich yesterday. I fretted about deli meat in the first trimester, but now that I'm in my third I'll eat it. I'm not as paranoid.

  • I drank black tea (caffeinated) during my pregnancy. Also wasn't too good about heating up my lunchmeat, either. Something about warm lunchmeat just turned me off. My son is fine. =)
