I ate hot dogs and deli meat all throughout my pregnancy. I found out in the third trimester that I wasn't supposed to and still did because I was almost done with my pregnancy lol. My baby boy is going to be 3 weeks on Tuesday and is perfectly healthy :)

Deli meats and hot dogs contain nitrates and nitrites. These are cancer causing. Also there was a study I read about a long time ago that if young children were fed hot dogs several times a week there chances of getting leukemia
Increased greatly! Imagine what it could do to an even more vulnerable growing baby! I would do a little research if I was you so you understand the risks better. There are so many healthy choices of food ! Do the best for your babies health and your own !
You will feel better! Eat for health! Take care

The odds of getting listeria are slim. I ate deli meats when I was pregnant, and no I didn't heat them up unless I was getting my sandwich toasted at Subway or Tim Hortons. I have never heard of anyone I know getting listeria from deli meat.

Never really understood how this even came to be from my understanding it's all RAW MEATS. I have worked at subway before and nothing is raw there. And have pretty high health standards. Never heard of not eating hotdogs during pregnancy ha ha there are worse things out there then hotdogs

You just have to heat the meat up til it is steaming then it's fine.
