Food for a Pregnant 'hound

julietg | Jan 23, 2011 05:40 AM

I know there are a lot of knowledgeable moms on this board!

I'm expecting, and finding some of the rules a little difficult to cope with. I am particularly vexed with the anti-listeriosis rules, such as no raw dairy, no soft cheese, and no deli meats. I'm also having trouble in restaurants. I actually got food poisoning yesterday from a restaurant meal. Which is terrifying.

I am keeping it as organic as I can. I am taking my lunch to work. I am drinking tons of water. I have cut out all artificial sweetners and caffeine.

But jeez, I just want a turkey sandwich or a goat cheese omelet!

What are 'hound moms' experiences with "the rules," and what did you find helped you out with morning sickness the other wonderful GI side effects of pregnancy?
