I've just eaten something I'm not suppose to!! Please help!

Hi ladies

Please help! I am 29weeks now and have just eaten bean sprouts as part of my dinner. It never passed my mind to check but after I had eaten them all I found out they shouldn't be eaten in pregnancy and can cause salmonella poisoning! Plus so many other problems to the baby! I am totally freaking out now! Please help!

I didn’t know this and I swear I’ve probably eaten bean sprouts

They weren't really cooked properly that's what worries me

I never knew this and have eaten them probably every other week throughout my whole pregnancy! I am now 41 weeks. :). If you feel unwell (the runs or stomach upset) then go and see your doctor but other than that I think you'll be alright and don't eat them again!

Thankfully I have an appointment today to see my GP...I've had spasms in my tummy but I don't know if they're related to this.

I think you will be totally fine.

I never knew this. I will have definitely had stir fries during both pregnancies. I ate brie when I was pregnant with my daughter. I just didn't think. I worried but she is here now to tell the tale.

There are so many things you need to remember sometimes you just loose track. I'm glad to hear everything went well for you. I will definitely be a bit more caustious however in the future.

Exactly! My mum was shocked that I was eating nuts. When she was pregnant, you were told not to eat them but now they say you should!

Yep I ate lots of Serrano ham in Spain with my first and she's now 2 yrs old. I just forgot that I couldn't eat it
