    Don't panic, I ate things like that with all 3 pgs accidentally and it was fine. Check with your GP if you are concerned.

    I think you should call your DR & mention it as it is stressing you & it's not good to be stressing...

    However I have eaten ham, soft cheeses & all is fine... I mentioned it to my OB & she didnt say anything!??

    Listeria is pretty rare and it depends on the conditions the ham was kept. If it was kept well you should be fine. Maybe read the listeria article on the BB site for more info. I agree with the other girls to go to the doctor for piece of mind.

    I know my Dr said in 20 years she's never seen a case of listeria. I also ate cold meats, lots of brie, and my friend had smoked salmon (and I had macca's shakes...totally forgot) I think everyone has at least something they are not meant to. Don't panic, just ask Doc if concerned. Enjoy your pregnancy, unfortunately there always seems to be something to worry about!! xo

    I had 2 lots of mixed sandwiches from Gloria Jeans with ham in it a week or so ago. Although I did think **** once I realized, I made a decision not to worry about it. I read up on Listera and the cases in Australia are SO SO minimal. Please donít stress yourself! We have all done something we werenít 'meant' to during our pregnancy

    my dr said his friend is an ob and has been practising for 20 years and has not seen one case of listeria!!! so from what i understand it is pretty rare and lots of women still eat cold meats through their pregnancy without any trouble... also listeria is like food poisoning if u had it i am pretty sure u would feel violently ill not just a warm feeling iukwim? if your really worried i am sure ur dr could help u out with any symptoms u are getting but i am sure all will be fine

    Hi Princess
    You would have to be very unlucky to catch listeria from eating a couple of sandwiches. What you need to do is consider the following, did the sandwich look fresh, did the bar look clean and well run, how many sandwiches did you eat.
    Symptoms of listeria infection will occur 2 Ė 6 weeks after contamination. The first symptom are usually flu like symptoms however some people will not have any symptoms. I would suggest a chat with your GP as it is easy to treat with antibiotics. (usually ampacillin and gentamycin).

    Princess I completely understand being nervous about your baby dying. Please try to remember that there is only about 20 cases Australia wide of stillbirth by Listeria a year. I eat ham and cooked chickens from delis regularly and my baby is perfectly fine. Sometimes it's okay to eat these meats if they are fresh and you trust the source.
