Can you eat dungeness crab legs while pregnant?

I have been craving them so bad and I have read they are low in mercury so they should be ok. I haven't eaten any since being pregnant and I just entered my 3rd trimester. What are your thoughts?

  • they say that eating small amounts of tuna is okay, i dont no about crab legs, ask your doctor i dont see why it would be a big deal if you only ate a small amount, but check to make sure.

  • I think you should be ok, but if it worries you just give your OB a call and get his/her opinion. Now I want crab legs lol!
