I own a cat and was so concerned about catching toxoplasmosis from him that I kind of forgot you could catch it other ways as well. My partner has taken over the responsibility of cleaning the cat litter, so I am ok when it comes to that. However in mid October, when I first found out that I was pregnant, for about 3 - 4 days after I found out I ate unwashed apples and oranges. As soon as I realized the risk of toxoplasmosis (from reading my pregnancy pack nutrition advice book) I instantly began washing my fruit from then on. I know, I know... basic hygiene means that I should have washed them anyway, but it just wasn't something that crossed my mind at the time. Like I said, ever since then I've washed my fruit, but I'm worried that I could have done some damage during those 3 - 4 days.
