I forgot and ate a deli meat sandwich today made at the grocery store. Now I am feeling extra nauseous and extremely worried that I have contracted Listeria... I am only 7 weeks. Am I going to lose the baby? Help. I don't go to the doctor til July 11th. Help!!!

Hi Jennifer, I wouldn't worry if I were you. I found out about listeria when I was 10 weeks. (I am 15 weeks now) I ate deli sandwiches probably 7 or 8 times not knowing the possible dangers. From what I read there is only a small chance of getting sick and your chances of getting sick are greater in the second trimester because your immune system is a little weaker. Are you feeling nauseous because of what you ate or because you are worried?? Maybe you can call your dr. or an advice nurse just to be safe... Good luck!

Jennifer, I wouldn't worry too much about this and the feelings you are having are prob because you are so scared. This was not an issue when I was pregnant with my first and I ate a lot of deli meat and I carried an over the due date healthy girl! Good luck to you and hope you feel a little better.

I was not aware you could nt eat deli meat while pg. I'm glad I got the info.

I've heard of steering clear of deli meats while pregnant but I don't think it's 100% harmful, I have never heard of someone eating a simple sandwich and it harming their unborn baby. My stepmom got listeria from eating an under cooked ball park hot dog though and lost her baby at 5 months. That was the companys fault though because that batch of meat wasn't good.
