Hello all- I am newly pregnant for the 3rd time, feeling a little annoyed by not being able to eat my eggs over medium like usual... But also feeling painfully aware that many of the food-borne illnesses (salmonella, listeriosis, etc) probably don't happen from the classic deli meat and rare steak kind of sources, and I'm wondering about maybe a more rational approach to safe eating (like, is eating in a restaurant particularly dangerous? How about veggies on a salad bar at work?). I know food borne illnesses can have tragic outcomes, I want to take this very seriously, but I'm starting to fear everything a bit...

Does anyone have any experiences with food borne illnesses in pregnancy, especially if you know the source, that you'd be willing to share?

DH and I both got food poisoning from a  Christmas party when I was pg with #4. It was a very expensive party, with chefs on site that had prepared all the food in a large, private kitchen. The kids did not get sick. We had eaten fish and they had not so we assume that was it. I was at the tail end of 1st tri  when it happened. Other then being really sick for a few days, there was nothing else that happened. 

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.
