  • I don't trust the cleanliness of places like Subway, so I would steer clear. But tuna in moderation when pregnant is fine.

  • they say no more than a can a week (i think you can have more though if it isnt albacore tuna), but i wouldnt go to subway just to be safe :)

  • My OB told me to only eat tuna once in a while... once a week I think is ok, but less if you can help it. I know I craved tuna my 1st pregnancy! You just want to keep in mind that tuna may contain small amounts of mercury and that can be harmful to the baby. That's why you can't eat a lot of it. I don't know about subway... the subway in my city kinda makes me lose my appetite when I go in there...

  • i craved tuna subs too, but to stay away from subway if you want, get some cans of tuna at a grocery store and some loaves of italian bread and lettuce and pickles and make your own sandwhiches, its cheaper in the end and you dont have to go anywhere! BTW-i found out the hard way, subway sometimes doesnt carry the tuna or runs out often due to demand at the time, i went out at 7 pm with my little pregnant heart set on it and they didnt have any!

  • I love tuna and Subway is the only place I know for sure doesn't use albacore. I love their tuna sub with a side of banana peppers. I just got done with one a few hours ago! I have never gotten sick from Subway either.

  • You can have tuna just not a lot, they say eat it in moderation.
