As long as they are made with pasteurized milk, they are safe. They should say whether they are or not on the package.

Cheese can be safe to eat during pregnancy. However, it is important to keep in mind that you must eat pasteurized cheese while you are pregnant. Unpasteurized cheese can cause the bacteria listeria, which can lead to Listeriosis. Though this infection is rare, it can be harmful to your unborn baby. This is why it is important to know that certain types of cheeses are safe during pregnancy, while others are not. Keep in mind that this rule applies to other forms of dairy, such as milk.

According to WebMD.com, some of the foods that are not considered safe during pregnancy include Mexican-style cheese, feta, blue cheese, Camembert and Brie. Pregnant women are also generally recommended to avoid deli cheese or meat altogether. However, if you do make the decision to eat it, it's ideal to warm it up in the microwave prior to eating to try to kill any bacteria. In situations where cheese has been sitting in the sun all day, such as at picnics or barbecues, it is ideal to avoid eating cheese or deli meats. Avoid eating cheese from farms.

So as long as it says pasteurized, you should be good to go hon, and btw......that sounds YUMMY, made me hungry for some now.......17w3d with number 4 lol :)
