Hullo. Am pregnant, just - 4 weeks, BFP yesterday. Just ate a handful of blueberries and one of them was obviously a bit off. Have I done for the baby? I miscarried last year so am feeling a bit neurotic.

You'll be fine OP smile

Easy to worry in the early stages!

Congratulations flowers

Thank you! The rational part of my brain says that even if I do miscarry it will not be because of a mouldy bloob. But it is being drowned out by the crazy lady.

One mouldy blueberry isn't going to make you ill, it'll just have been a bit unpleasant to eat. There's no way you could have affected the baby at all, but I can understand what making you worry.

Don't worry OP - there's very little associated with fruit & veg that can give you food poisoning as the normal moulds etc that grow on them aren't pathogenic to humans. It's stuff of animal origin that causes problems or contamination from faecal matter etc. <<finally that microbiology degree came in useful! smile>>

Sorry about your previous loss. Try to relax and enjoy this pregnancy you will be fine angryflowers

Sorry for previous loss. I drank mouldy organge juice and asked my GP About it and she said it would totally fine. I imagine it's the same thing so nothing for you to worry about. X
