• ready to eat seafood such as smoked fish and smoked mussels, oysters or raw seafood such as sashimi or sushi

• pre-prepared or stored salads, including coleslaw and fresh fruit salad

• drinks made from fresh fruit or vegetables where washing procedures are unknown (excluding canned or pasteurised juices)

• pre-cooked meat products which are eaten without further cooking or heating, such as pate, sliced deli meat including ham, strassburg and salami and cooked diced chicken (as used in sandwich shops)

• any unpasteurised milk or foods made from unpasteurised milk

• soft serve ice creams

• soft cheeses, such as brie, camembert, ricotta and feta (these are safe if cooked and served hot)

• ready-to-eat foods, including leftover meats which have been refrigerated for more than one day

• dips and salad dressings in which vegetables may have been dipped

• raw vegetable garnishes. (VDHS 2005, NSW FA 2010)

It's fine to consume any pasteurised or UHT milk and yoghurts, including probiotic yoghurts. Cheeses, such as cheddar, cottage cheese or processed cheese are also fine to eat.

RE: Hair Dye

It's likely safe. It's best not to touch your roots though in the first trimester just to be safe. Testing on rats on levels much much higher than what we would receive showed no increased absorption into the blood stream. I erred on the side of caution though and only got my balayage done rather than a full colour and told the hairdresser to stay off the roots.

There is a link at the top of the pregnancy section, but here it is to make it easier: http://www.essentialbaby.com.au/forums/ind...howtopic=843555

There is a link to the info in there and the discussion about other questionables.

I believe hair dye is fine as long as the space is well ventilated and you're not doing it daily.

The PP's have given you some good links about food.

Re the hair dye, my OB says it is completely safe.  As Nut said, just make sure you are in a well ventilated room...

Congrats on your pregnancy!
