  • No fish or alcohol while pregnant for me. Wouldn't risk it at all.

  • I LOVE fish but I have been avoiding it while pregnant. One, I was told not to eat it due to high levels of mercury. Two, when I had some tuna, it got me sick anyway. I have had severe nausea and a lot of foods do not agree with me.

  • Tuna and shellfish can have higher mercury levels, but other fish is fine to eat during pregnancy. I eat shellfish, but in very limited amounts.

  • i know the doctor said no tilefish, swordfish, shark, etc, but that shellfish was fine! i didnt know that til about 3 mos, and i wouldnt even eat crab rangoon before that, i was as adamant about not eating it as i was about not drinking alcohol at first!!
