I am 8 weeks pg., & over the weekend I was craving McDonalds soft serve vanilla ice cream (don't ask me why...I've never even had it before!) Well, I had it on two separate occasions. I was just surfing around on the internet & came across a website that said you should avoid soft serve ice cream while pg. because of listeria...now I am freaking out! Obviously there is nothing that I can do now (at least not that I know of), but should I call my dr. in the morning????

haha I agree with newlywed. You would think that all these "dangerous" food products like hot dogs, deli meat and soft serve ice cream would come with a warning label to pregnant women. haha I wouldnt sweat it hun! In fact, mmm a mcdonalds chocolate fudge sundae sounds delectable at this moment. haha

I ate that a few times while pregnant with my first and had no problems whatsoever. Don't worry. I just wouldn't frequent it.

With my first child, i had soft serve alot. Ice cream was the only thing i could keep down.

Hey I heard that the risk is that the nozzle or tube or whatever the ice cream is served from may not have been cleaned properly therfore the risk of listeria would be when old ice cream mixes with the new, but im sure the chances are slim and you'll be fine!
