Subway-Do you eat it pregnant?

I want Subway today...I know, I know, I'm not supposed to eat deli meat but I just think a lot of that stuff is ridiculous. My mom ate deli meat, drank tea (with caffeine) and did pretty much what she wanted and I'm fine.

  • I'd never heard of the risks from deli meat during my first two pregnancies, so I didn't really stress much about it during my last one because it hadn't done me any damage in the first two.

  • I don't, but I'm pretty strict about my diet in pregnancy. I never wanted to take the risk of listeriosis, but Subway is always the first thing I ask for after delivering.

  • I eat deli meat occasionally, probably once a week. I think if it's a place you've been to before or a brand you've bought before, it's fine. I wouldn't eat any suspect meat, and in the first trimester I was very careful (and paranoid!) but now that I'm further along, I'll eat deli meat and drink caffeine.
