I'm sure it is fine to eat them as long as they aren't raw, that's what i did with P. Just checked NHS website and that's what it says.
Ready to eat ones from supermarkets are cooked aren't they and therefore fine?! Ate a whole load this afternoon without thinking and now worrying a bit. I did so well to get my steak well cooked (advice has changed from when i was pregnant with P!) and avoid the soft blue cheese, let alone all the cider and wine at my inlaws this afternoon.
If i shouldn't have eaten them then no point in panicking, whats done is done but i'd like to know for future reference. I have googled but some websites say ready to eat is fine and others say it's a no. I usually go with NHS list but they aren't clear.

its fine, raw prawns are grey, you'd know if you'd eaten them!

Definitely fine, I've been living off them for the last few months! Random thing to want to eat all the time, I did panic the first time because I wasn't sure but it's ok. As isis said, raw ones are grey so as long as they're pink we can eat them
Thats what i thought but then you google and get all sorts of crap about ready to eat not being ok unless heated.

I'd stick to what the NHS say, if you tried to follow every piece of advice you'd never eat!

I think as long as they are hot and cooked i.e in a curry etc they are fine. Thats what my midwife advised anyway. It's only due to risk of food poisoning not that it will harm the baby.

They are fine as is stilton so you can still have some nice cheese. Well it was when I was pregnant with S and she is only 3.5 months!!

Yes thank god for stilton!!!!!!

Raw prawns are grey, you wouldn't want to eat them just at the look of them. Pink prawns are cooked and therefore fine

I do hope so! I do love a prawn! What's the point of craving Chinese if you can't eat prawns!?

I think it would be fine. The steak thing had me the other day, last time I was pregnant I could have rare steak, so I just assumed we still could and had a bite of H's steak. Then I read the new advice and panicked. It's too late now but I'm really annoyed with myself.
