Tuna and pregnant.

I started having this craving about Subway tuna on wheat bread. I know it's kinda bland but it works good and with the nausea, bland is better. I am a little worried because I am starting to crave this sandwhich again today. I google things and see that I shouldn't consume too much in one week. Has anyone eaten tuna several times a week. I just don't want to cause any more problems then I already have!

  • I asked my dr about this at the begining of my pregnancy, and he said that twice a week was ok. But to try to mix up the different kinds of seafood. Salmon one day, tuna another etc.

  • There are a couple of things to look at:

    #1-Ask subway if the tuna they use is Chunk Light because that kind of tuna is safe to have 2 times a week. Albacore Tuna is not safe.

    #2-At what point of your pregnancy are you? If you are in the first trimester I would definately stick with the 2 times a week because that's when nural tube defects can happen and mercury aids in nural tube defects.
