  • Unless you are allergic to shell fish, have a blast.

  • I would,lol.
    I think they ask you to limit your seafood intake to 1-2x's a week during a pregnancy and thats just because of some levels of Mercury being high.

  • Mmmmmm, that sounds delicious. & yes, they are fine if you're not allergic. Check a chart for mercury levels in diff kinds of seafood to see which ones you might want to limit, but seafood is very healthy during pregnancy. Just avoid anything uncooked or undercooked.

  • Eat all you want, you're just not suggested to eat fish with mercury in them or sushi.
