I need help to answer my question.

Has anyone ever went through listeria while pregnant? How did you feel, and what happened?

23 weeks preggo: Never had morning sickness... and not since last week started to get sick.??

Reason why I asked b/c paranoid me was eating hot dogs last week (forgetting about the bacteria risk), four days after that I woke up with a horrible stomach ache and vomited. Then Last night we had a cookout and hung around a fire... I started drinking diet pop out of a can, and ate steak, chips/salsa, and potato salad. Anyways I got home starting to get a headache... which usually happens when I'm around smoke or drinking can pop... I took a tylonol PM (I use it to help me sleep as well) and I felt better.. I though got TIRED, and dizzy and soon as I layed in my bed I passed out! lol..wasnt long I woke up and had to vomit. :( went back to bed. today I started feeling stiff neck... which I think it's cause the way I'm sitting looking at my computer.... but I dont feel sick.. ill feeling... not stomach ache nothing. Anyone went through this? Or am I worrying for nothing?

  • I don't have experience with this, but I would suggest you visit your doctor. It's always better to be safe than sorry when you're pregnant.

  • There is a stomach bug going around right now. You could have gotten some of those germies. Stay hydrated, and call your OB to check in.

    If the hot dog was cooked, that probablky was not a culprit. Potato salad, however, has a bad track record because of the mayo sitting out for too long.

  • Agree with ImaginationMama that the potato salad would be more likely to cause illness than a hotdog--even an uncooked one!

  • I would talk to your Dr asap, it may just be a stomach bug but with a depressed immune system they may want to watch you. Hope you feel better soon.
