    My husband and I are heading out to a new fancy steak restaurant that's opened near us tonight. Usually I'm a rare steak girl, have heard this is a no go when preggers. Do you think medium is ok or does it have to be well done? I don't think I can face a cremated piece of leather on my plate so may just opt for ribs or something else on the menu xxx

    I was told by doc and midwife that all meat has to be cooked all the way through for it to be ok, so you can't even have it medium, it has to be well done. I'm missing rare steak!

    I've eaten 3 medium steaks in the last week due to mad steak craving. Probably on the medium - well end all of them. I think there is a really rare chance of toxoplasmosis from undercooked meat but its really uncommon. I'm trusting my body to know whats right at the moment... for example, alcohol still smells awful!

    oooh yes! And loads and loads of seafood, which I've also been avoiding because I'm a bit of a scaredy cat lol. I was really craving champagne last night, funnily enough! Will definitely indulge when I can

    Medium rare steak is what I miss more than anything else. My local Italian do THE best filleto Rossini - fillet steak with pâté on top and a gorgeous Madeira sauce. I'm dreaming about it!!! Xx

    I just had a brisket. Amazing alternative to steak. And slow cooked to get all the nasties out without turning the meat into shoe leather. Amazing
