  • they have have changed how much tuna you are supposed to eat since my first nephew was concieved and honestly, I don't believe there is any danger in eating it. My brother knows more about things like this and I talk to him all the time. He says as long as its not "large" fish you are eating, there is NOTHING wrong with it....I've ate tuna through both of my pregnancies and nothing bad has happened. same as my SIL and my sister

  • Tuna, being a deep ocean fish, has Omega 3 which is good for the heart. I'd say,---unless you have some fish allergy or other health problem that would stop you from eating tuna,---ENJOY !!!

  • They say that you should not eat it because of the levels of mercury. I would look that up and decide if it is worth it to you. Better safe than sorry. Maybe try to find an alternative.

  • I was told if i really wanted tuna ( I was like you it was one of my foods i craved) they suggested albacore tuna it's supposed to be better it may be a little more expensive but it was worth it to get the tuna i really wanted Goodluck

  • No matter what you hear from your doctor, YOU are ultimately responsible for your actions. If you want tuna and you believe that the benefits outweigh the risks, then DO IT!
