26 weeks pregnant at the Chinese Buffet.... I ate too many shrimp!

I know I am supposed to limit seafood- and i'm pretty sure I went well over my allotment with all the different types of shrimp at the buffet.

Anything to worry about?

I learned my lesson- got pretty sick afterwards :)

  • Many Chinese buffets are loaded with MSG, which is not healthy for the baby. Drink some water to dilute the sodium. Then stay away from it for the rest of your pregnancy. Also, avoid deli because it too is loaded with sodium.

  • Not this Chinese Buffet. I promise! SUPER clean and SUPER fresh ingredients.

  • Well, since you got sick, I'd say you're fine :P

    I loves my seafood, and I still have it on occasion. Shrimp isn't on the "must avoid" list (or it isn't on mine, yay), so I wouldn't be too worried. Just try not to engorge yourself next time.

    Or, take me with you next time!!!!!!!

  • Clean or not most Chinese places use MSG. Before you start replying back find out what it is first. MSG is an ingredient that is salty. Just be careful next time and drink plenty of water right now to get the extra sodium from the mSG out of your system.
