I was told you have to cook the meat but I don't really think its that important. I haven't eaten one my self but that's cause I can't eat meat since I've been pregnant I wish I could tho sounds good! But my cousin would all the time and her son is very healthy its just a precaution

I eat it. I hear so many mixed things. But im almost 15w and still really sick so i just eat whatever i can. Some doctors say heat it up and some dont. Maybe if you buy a more expensive meat it would be better. I dont know. Lol

Technically, your "not supposed to" due to Listeria unless you heat It or cook It to where the meat sizzles to kill off the potential bacteria . But, I personally eat sandwiches all the time and my baby boy Is fine.

I eat it but I at least pop it in the microwave for about 30 secs. I even did that before pregnancy.
