this may seem very silly, but I'm in a panic, I had some pad Thai the other day, from a little local shop in town and I know it had beansprouts in it but they were cooked, I'm sure I ate a few raw ones too, now I'm worried I may have caused listeria or some other infection
anyones comments or advice welcome!
thank you xx

Listeria is like food poisoning - so if you had it you would know as you'd be being sick etc.
the food you 'can't eat' only slightly increases the risk and I think with beansprouts it's more due to e-coli/salmonella risk rather than listeria.
Im sure you're absolutely fine, but if you do start to feel unwell at all (and not just the normal pregnancy feeling rubbish) then contact your GP x
