As far as I know cream cheese like philadelphia is fine. Any cheese or milk products that are pasteurised is ok the cheeses to avoid are ones like Brie or blue cheese. Anything with raw egg is be avoided which can be in certain ice creams :cry: especially homemade stuff! I've been researching this myself!! Im not sure about mayonnaise maybe someone else can clear that up!! Oh n pate isn't good it's to do with the bacteria listeria. I also seen something about deli meats but again not 100% sure about this either!!

Hope that helps

Hmmm things to avoid while pregnant....

Sneezing... soon to become known to you as snissing!!
Going out without panty liners, refer to statement above!
Bending over in public as involuntary breaking of wind can not be helped while pregnant.
Trying to get shoes out from under your bed! It's a tight squeeze under there, especially if you forget about bump.
Wearing tight jeggings, whoever thought putting pregnant women in them was cool should be shot!
Non padded maternity bras under a tshirt. When you are pregnant your nipples become like calf nuts and can be seen from Mars!
Thats most of the activities covered... i think ;o)
With regards to the foods etc to avoid... all in moderation. A cup of real coffee is fine if you replace the rest with decaff. Soft cheeses but the likes of philedelphia is fine. Herbal tea, green tea is to be avoided but i kept eating as i normally did before i got pregnant but made sure that the majority of my choices were healthy.
Enjoy yourself, if you cut out everything you will be miserable.
So... if you want that 99.. have it... once its not every day!

During pregnancy you should avoid drinking large quantities of Tea/coffee as they contain caffeine which too much can cause miscarriages in early pregnancy. I presume certain types of herbal tea are to be avoided as for example green tea contains a lot of antioxidants so that wouldn't be great if you were pregnant. If you aren't sure I'd say ask your doc or midwife the next time you are in with them. Its always best to double check when it comes to herbs and the likes...
