Sushi while pregnant?

Can you eat any kind of sushi while pregnant? Not the California Roll veggie kind, but the raw fish still breathing on your plate kind?

  • I make my own sushi so I know exactly what is in it. I cook crab then let it cool and then put that into my sushi

  • I'm planning on going to a Papadeux next week & want to plan ahead. I know Salmon is ok & shrimp is not. But what about crab, frogs legs, crawfish, mahi, flounder... etc. Is there some seafood reference somewhere about this? I am from a town with absolutely NO seafood & I'm travelling to Dallas & I want seafood!

  • I would say no, simply because its raw fish, and you should stay away from mercery
