  • No not for the most part. The main thing you have to be careful of is sodium because it has a LOT of it!

    Other than that just watch out for undercooked seafood and certain fish that is high in Mercury.

    When we go I usually go for the Lo Mein, steamed dumplings, a spring roll and of course I HAVE TO HAVE a crab ragoon...LOVE THEM!

  • i craved chinese food in thr first couple months of pregnancy this time around, and everytime i ate it, it made me feel like i had a rock in my stomach so after about 3 times, i just stopped eating it and i never get that feeling anymore..i doubt that its any worse for you than any other fast food..just cant eat anything raw of course..
