I just found out that I am pregnant and I went online to make sure I was eating only what was healthy for my baby and avoiding what could be harmful. I was a little overwhelmed to say the least. This is what I came up with: You shouldn't eat: soft cheeses lunch meats any diet sodas/drinks/artificial sweetners etc no caffiene including sodas, coffee,tea etc Tuna (b/c of the mercury) Some fish including shark, mackeral, swordfish etc any processed meats or cheeses such as jerky, cheese spread, bologna etc Nothing with raw eggs including homemade icecream or eggnog (non alcoholic of course) no alcohol consumption (I hope that is a given!!!!!!) Anyway...the list goes on and on but I feel like I am living in panic. I love eating at Subway but b/c lunchmeat & cold cuts are out...I guess so are they. I love my morning mochas but no caffiene. I love Diet Coke...that is a double wammy...no caffiene, no artificial sweetner. I haven't seen my doctor yet so this is just stuff from the internet. For those of you that have seen a doctor...do they recommend avoiding all of these things? I don't understand the cold cut issue....Thanks!
