  • Cook them well and yeah go for it. I wouldn't eat them raw. Not saying you would, but I know how cravings can be.

  • Fish is ok, in moderation. 2-3 servings a week. (12 oz total) of any fish except shark, swordfish, tilefish and mackerel. And, of course, it needs to be cooked. Fish sticks (I'm guessing that's what you mean) are made from cod and that is perfectly fine. The concern with the other fish you should not eat is mercury levels which can cause damage to the developing baby's nervous system. In large, predator-type fish the mercury tends to build up to higher levels because they eat other fish and they live longer.
