I have been craving lunch meat so bad. I have heard mixed reviews. Some women eat it as long as its from a reputable place. Others say hell no.

What are all your thoughts I am 26 weeks.

My doc said it was fine, but for some reason I can't do it! I have eaten turkey warmed up, from Potbellys.

I would not have made it without fried bologna sandwiches. Not healthy, I know, but it was the only way my wife survived my mood swings.

This made me LOL.  This was me with my 2nd.  I would buy a pound of salami and eat almost all of it while I did the rest of the shopping!  He loves salami.  I think the concern with deli meat is listeria.  I don't know about you, but I don't know anyone pregnant or not who has contracted listeria from deli meat.

No! IF you really want it, heat it up. make sure it's steaming

i have been craving deli style meat too, so some brands have some that are better to eat

I ate lunch meat throughout both of my pregnancies and never had any issues. Talk to your doctor though if you're apprehensive.

I did during my first pregnancy.  I kinda love deli lunchmeat... not the stuff that is all congealed together.  The good stuff.  There is a brand called Boar's Head.  It is real deal meat.  Not a lot of places sell it and it is kind of expensive but worth it. Plus I love salami...

I ate everything.  Literally everything.  I think you go with your gut.  If you really think about how women smoke in the past pregnant and everything, you think an italian hoagie isn't that bad.  I think whatever you feel comfortable doing should be up to you.  I 100% agree it needs to be a place you know isn't serving hot lunchmeat.

I agree with the making melts.  I agree that you should consider WHERE it was purchased and how fresh it is. Eat it right away and prepare it appropriately.

As long as you heat it up first, you should be able to eat it. I would make sure it was from a reputable place as well. The risk of it harming you or your baby is low, but you don't want to take any chances.

Heat it up! That's what I've always done Add some cheese and make it a melt like Sadie mentioned!

I like making melts, like turkey or ham melts just like how you would make grilled cheese. Best of both worlds!

I always craved it throughout my pregnancy as well. I would just hear it up in the microwave first! It takes away any risk of bacteria.

You should listen to your body -- it won't lie you. If you need it, then take it. Or theres another option -- maybe you need any vitamins or minerals that lunch meat consists.

I'd just ask your OB because I've heard so many mixed opinions on this! I was told it was fine as long as you heat it up for like 10-15 seconds beforehand. Totally changes the taste for me when I do that though, so I don't even want it by that point lol.

Just heat it up! Anytime I was craving it, I'd get either get a cooked sandwich, or heat I up and let it cool back down.

Tofurky is really good and since it isn't real meat there isn't any concerns there!

Paislee posted this 04 October 2019

Heat it up and you'll be good!
