subway sandwiches

hey, i hardly ever ate lunchmeat before my pregnancy, but now that i am pregnant, i am craving subway like crazy!!!!  i have been only eatting veggie delights because i was told not to eat lunch meat while pregnant.  however, that is not filling my craving!  since they are pretty reputable, do you think it's okay to eat their lunchmeat?  i am just drooling thinking about their turkey and ham subs!

I have never been told not to eat luch meat before. I have two beautiful boys and they are just fine...I ate luch meat every once and a while when I was pregnant. I have heard to watch the amount of fish you ate and to stay away from certain types, but never heard of the lunch meat....maybe im missing something, lol:) Where did you hear that?

I lived on Subway w/ this last pregnancy.  I had never heard of that about the meat until recently.  I think someone else asked that question on here too.  My baby was just fine.  I love me a good sandwich!!!

This website explains it:

http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Fact_Sheets/Protect_Your_Baby/index.asp

Basically, the concern is the increased amount of a bacteria called Listeria which is found in lunch meats.  It's going to be like cigerette smoking and drinking, where some people say they did it while pregnant and had a perfectly healthy baby.. and then you have obvious reports that doing such things can cause problems in your baby.  For this, I think it's completely up to you and your comfort level.  Me, I love hot dogs, and I refuse to give them up (I just cook the hell out of them)!

I think if you got the grilled subs from subway you would be okay. Cooking the meat to steaming helps eliminate the chances of getting listeria.

thank you all so very much!  i feel better about it now.  i will just try to do it sparingly like the fish.  i only eat fish once a week.  maybe subway will be twice a week ;-)

blueeyedtabbycat-it was in paperwork from doctors, pregnant friends told me about it and i think i've read it in my books.

If you're skeptical just ask them to heat the lunch meat really good first.  I have NEVER had any problems with lunch meat...Never even heard of that until a few months ago.

Try having them toast it. That will cook the lunch meat a lil bit and I think that should be okay
