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 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
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!
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.
