I ate something I shouldn't...
Hi ! Sorry for my bad English.
I know this thread is a bit old, but I try, just to see.
Yesterday night, I ate pastas with a sauce (a "rosée" sauce, I don't know how you call that... there is cream and tomatoes in it). The sauce was opened for 6 days, in the refrigerator. I made it boil for at least a minute just in case and ate it with the fresh pastas.
But after I thought of it, and realised that the sauce was MUCH older than that, and that normally, even if I wasn't pregnant, I wouldn't eat it ! Something like 16 days old.
I'm at 24 weeks now, and I'm worried... if something happens to my baby because of my stupidity, I will never forgive myself.
So my questions :
- In some place they say that boiling kills Listeria, and in some places, they say that there is a kind of Listeria that can survive to high temperatures and that is responsible for half of infections... what do you think of that ?
- If I want to have a blood test just not to be stressed for months in case the infections shows after 70 days, after how much time would the test be valid ? I guess that today for example would be too early. I couldn't find any information about the time for the plasma rate to get important, I just found things about the incubation time.
I'll try to call my doctor on that, but she can be hard to join.
A big thank to anybody who has reliable informations about that stuff to share with me.
