    I have been wanting steak like nobody's business for a while now. But the problem is that I only like it medium rare and I'm not sure that it's ok. I know different people say yes and others say no. Has anyone actually asked a doctor about this? I hate to call the office about something so silly, but I keep forgetting to ask at my appointments and I don't have another one for 3 weeks.

    Some say med-well is okay. I personally go for well done, but your right...def. not as good!! I had it last night.

    I always eat my steak rare or med-rare, but when I spoke to my dr about it (I called, just to be sure, I was going to a cookout that night), he said once in a great while, like three max throughout the pregnancy will be fine, just don't make it a weekly thing. If you have steak more often, just make it a little more done than you'd normally eat, just to be safe.
