Just a quick one really!
Am 18 weeks along and enjoyed a massive slice of cheesecake after dinner tonight - have jutting remembered the food rules and something about certain cheeses?
I read the box and it says made with full fat soft cheese - is this ok or not?
Sorry if its a silly question!
Thanks smile

It's fine. It will be processed cheese such as Philadelphia and that's fine in pregnancy.

NTMummy059 Fri 05-Apr-13 22:56:06

Ok thanks - thought it would be but suddenly had a mental block!

It's only cheese that hasn't been pasteurised that you need to avoid. Blue cheeses, goats cheese etc.. If you google it you'll find a list.

God knows we have to deprive ourselves of enough stuff during pregnancy so enjoy that cheesecake! In fact I may hunt down a slice myself today since you've put the idea in my head.

Thanks smile I have stopped googling and started mumsnetting as the advice on here seems alot more straight forward, truthful and doesn't scare me!
Mm cheesecake.. Think I will finish the rest off today :D

You can eat hard blue cheeses safely MammaCi.
NTMummy check out the NHS guidelines.

NTMummy059 Sat 06-Apr-13 15:40:40

Haha sorry for making you all want cheesecake!
I've had to stop watching cookery programmes as I HAD to have what they made but I just couldn't be bothered and it made me sad lol!
Also if someone mentions McDonalds I don't feel content until I've had a cheeseburger blush Haha

I love cheesecake and i'm nearly 22 weeks, i've been fairly relaxed this time round (dc3) as long as it's pasteurised it's allowed smile

sjupes Sat 06-Apr-13 15:49:55

Oh mcdonalds - i don't like their food AT ALL but since being pg again i keep popping in and have on occasion forced dp to drive up and get me a double cheeseburger, mayo chicken, toffee sundae, apple pie, cup of tea, and large fries... blush

A couple of times i leave the two burgers and just have a huge big mac grin

<i know i shouldn't eat soft ice cream but mmmmm!>

Chocolate milkshake.

I made my own the other day:

Good quality ice cream
Homemade chocolate sauce
A little milk
All whizzed together in the blender... Yum

Homemade chocolate sauce is just cocoa powder, sugar and a little water zapped in the microwave to get rid of the graininess.

I've just thought of banoffee pie. If only it was possible.

NTMummy059 Sat 06-Apr-13 17:07:30

Sounds amazing! Hmm think I want McDonalds now and a homemade milkshake made by DP after ;) hehe thanks everyone!

VivaLeBeaver Sat 06-Apr-13 18:13:46

I've just had a homemade creme egg milkshake. Creme egg, vanilla icecream and milk blended. Lush.

squizita Sat 06-Apr-13 18:25:39 YAAAAY! I can eat brie and blue cheese, provided it's cooked first. So sayeth the NHS. This thread got me thinking about it so I went on a rummage for advice.

NTMummy059 Sat 06-Apr-13 22:12:31

Oh i love stilton but have been avoiding it! If NHS says it's fine I'll be having some smile thanks squizita

yellowsnownoteatwillyou Sun 07-Apr-13 10:10:42

I'm 23 weeks and previously lived cheesecake, however baby hates all things sweet, and after seeing cheesecake in reverse in the carpark of a restaurant, I am doubtful I will ever eat it again. Makes me heave even looking at it in shops. sad

yellowsnownoteatwillyou Sun 07-Apr-13 10:10:58

Loved stupid phone

Bodicea Sun 07-Apr-13 16:35:58

Does mozzarella count as soft cheese? Would that mean you can't have pizza?!?!

NTMummy059 Sun 07-Apr-13 17:15:58

Ahh i don't even know?! Although I've eaten ALOT of pizza :/

FoofFighter Sun 07-Apr-13 17:33:01


fuckwittery Sun 07-Apr-13 17:34:35

It's just unpasturised cheeses, mozzarella is fine. Also even if it wasn't, it's cooked on a pizza so that would be fine too,
