I dont see why cheesecake is off limits. Mmmm, just pictured myself eating a huge slice of key lime pie. With cream.

Don't see why cheesecake is off limits! If you eat it in a restaurant (and its a chilled rather than baked cheesecake) then maybe ask if it contains raw eggs. But a shop bought cheesecake will have pasteurised eggs in it so it will be fine. I wouldn't bother either way though, soft boiled eggs havent hurt me! xxx

if its any help baked cheesecakes are fine as the egg is cooked. some cheesecake even if they are shopbought may contain raw egg. i lasted til 37 weeks pregnant then ate cheesecake and nuts .

This is what I craved during my last pg - the white choc and strawberry cheesecake at my local coffee shop - it's to die for! Unfortunately, I couldn't have it as it did contain raw eggs! Now I shouldn't be eating it so the last pound or few of baby belly can bugger off!

Isnt cheesecake made from soft cheese?
Apr 17, 2008 5:18AM
Found this on the net
Cream cheese is a safe cheese. It is only the unpastuerized soft cheeses you should avoid. Plus, most cheesecakes are cooked, which would kill off any harmful bacteria.

Wrong wrong wrong i'm afraid girlies. I am absolutely 100% addicted to cheesecake and therefore done a lot of research over the last 27 weeks! Almost all cheesecake contains soft cheese (not cream cheese) and this is a no no due to the process in which it is made. While the risk is low (as with raw eggs - they actuully have to be bad to cause a problem) is it worth the risk?
I have checked and double checked but its a no and I miss it soooo much.
Your decisions though girlies.

oohhh crap!, im still craving it! how bout egg custards? i suppose they are a no aswell!!!!
good old chocolate, lol

As far as i am aware you can eat cheesecake as long as it is made from pasturised cheese (such as philly). Its soft cheese with mould in it that is harmful during pregnancy. This is the advice taken from the philly web site:
I am pregnant can I eat Philadelphia?
Philadelphia is a pasteurised product. Pregnant women are advised not to eat un-pasteurised cheese.
I have been making my own and eating it throughout pregnancy. Tammi xxx
