So I've just been to frankie and bennys and I literally forgot I was pregnant for a second and I ask for mayo! Should I be okay?

I would think you're okay, I don't think F and B make homemade mayonnaise.

As in homemade mayo would use raw egg but I should think they buy it in tubs

Good grief. Yes.

Even homemade is fine so long as eggs used are lion-marked (salmonella free) which all Uk eggs are

Hahahah I know I thought the same I sound like a complete idiot 😂 All these does and donts in pregnancy is ridiculous!

You're not an idiot, honestly all the scare monger theories you hear these days.. When me and my other half found out I was pregnant he got a bit obsessive with mayo and threw all of ours in the bin!! (Seriously lol) as long as its pasteurised and not home made then it will be fine smile x

Im 33 weeks, i just had a subway with mayo in and i've eaten chicken mayo baguettes & chicken mayo sandwiches from mcdonalds all the way through. Homecooked is the worry, they arent allowed to home cook incase one of us sues them! Dont worry x

I've just discovered liquorice is a no-no, and nearly all the herbal teas I've been drinking have it in. FFS

Driving me mad too - I've been eating feta cheese because I thought it was alright... according my pregnancy book it isn't but babycenter says it is?? I was stressing about my coffee intake too but I've gone off it now thanks to MS!

NHS does not advise to avoid liquorice but just to avoid a liquorice root herbal remedy

dementedpixie Fri 17-Mar-17 16:38:14

Gets is ok as long as its pasteurised

dementedpixie Fri 17-Mar-17 16:38:31

Feta *

I've been having feta salads made up at my work every day as it's a meal I can keep down and enjoy, maybe I should skip it?!

I've been eating tuna mayo and egg mayo, just not homemade mayo. And feta, and stilton, and cooked brie. The NHS guidance is quite reasonable in what you can/can't eat and doesn't actually cut out that much (as long as you pasteurised). I have also found that Sainsbury's own brand versions of different cheeses are pretty good for stating on the back if they aren't safe to eat in pregnancy - for example their goats cheese with a mould skin (like brie) says not to eat.
