I had my 37 week appointment this morning and asked the doctor about soft serve froyo, since I've been craving it like crazy since the weather started getting nicer. She looked at me like I had three heads to even suggest it wasn't safe. Said "I probably wouldn't eat it from a shady man in a converted school bus ice cream truck just for cleanliness reasons, but where did you ever hear that?" (And she tends to be pretty conservative overall - is fully on the no deli meats, no soft cheese, no sushi wagon.)

Has anyone actually had their doctor tell them to avoid soft serve, or is that just an internet thing?
