How rare is contracting listeria in pregnancy?
Started reading the Maker’s Diet and it recommended eating unpastuerized dairy products. I followed the diet for three days until I remembered I shouldn’t be eating soft/unpastuerized cheese during pregnancy ( i ate goat cheese 3 times, and white unpastuerized cheddar about 4 times). I also had cold organic turkey breast a few times. I am 26 weeks pregnant and feeling a little weird today, and working out at the gym was more hard than usual. Should I be at all concerned??
According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), an estimated 2,500 persons become seriously ill each year in the United States and among these, 500 will die. According to research, pregnant women account for 27% of these cases. CDC claims that pregnant women are 20 times more likely to become infected than non-pregnant healthy adults.
Symptoms in pregnant women include mild flu-like symptoms, headaches, muscle aches, fever, nausea, and vomiting. If the infection spreads to the nervous system it can cause stiff neck, disorientation, or convulsions. Infection can occur at any time during pregnancy, but it is most common during the third trimester when your Immune System is somewhat suppressed. Be sure to contact your health care provider if you experience any of these symptoms.
If you are pregnant and are infected with listeriosis, you could experience:
Infection to the newborn
Death to the newborn (about 22% of cases of perinatal listeriosis result in stillbirth or neonatal death)
Early treatment may prevent fetal infection and fetal death
