That's what i said. I just got out the hospital cause I had bad pain near my ovaries and got a little scared. Doctor said baby is OK n heat beat was fine. And than he mentioned no milk no ice cream. I don't have a obgyn yet till wed. That I have my appointment to apply for it. I was. Very confused.

I was told I have to drink 3 glasses of milk a day by my ob,not to say what mine says means everything, but I wouldn't take that advise from that dr. That's crazy talk. They say prego women crave ice cream and pickels so no ice cream or milk.... that's some weird advice.

It's soft serve that they want you to be worried about.  It has to do with the machines not being cleaned properly and causing listeria. But I had ice cream and still do, even soft serve from DQ.

How about from the grocery store are those OK. Cause I see my mom eating a huge bowl of caramel ice cream and I want some but after what that doc told me has me scared cause its my 1st baby

Unless there is a health issue, I'm sure it is okay to have ice cream and of course milk. We need our calcium !  Talk to your OB about it.

My sister ate a ton of ice  cream during her 2nd and 3rd pregnancies. I ate a lot too during my first.

I ate ice cream when I was pregnant with my daughter and she was born strong and healthy.  I never heard that u can't.  I think as long as u eat it in moderation, everything will fine. And congrats on your pregnancy. It's an amazing feeling.

Yes, it's the soft serve ice cream you should steer clear of due to listeria. Shop bought pasturized ice cream is fine. I'm 7 weeks as well.
