I love the stuff but I don't know if I can eat it or not. I have just avoided it so far but got a HUGE craving for it when i saw it in my cabinet =) ... I'm about 6 months and can I eat it and is there a limit to how much you can eat?

It's probably fine. I wouldn't eat it everyday but I don't like clam chowder anyways.

http://www.babycenter.com/0_eating-fish-during-pregnancy-how-to-avoid-mercury-and-still_10319861.bc?page=2  It doesn't say anything about if clams are good or bad. Just what fish you should or shouldn't eat.

When I was pegnant I was told not to eat fish b/c of the iron or something like that. and it was hard for me b/c not only could I not eat it when I was pregnant  but also when I was breast feeding. Let me tell you that was some of the hardest months for me b/c I love Joes Crab Shack and Red Lobster and places like that lol. I am not sure the reasoning behind not eating fish but check with your doctor to best the best answer. B/c anything to keep my baby healthy is what I do. i am sure you will too

Take care and God bless

Yes you can have clam chowder.  You just can't eat raw clams.  I went to a clam bake during the summer while I was pregnant.  I was due first week of october and went to the bake the first week of august.  And they were sooooooooooooo delicious. mmmmmmm

I eat it about 3 times a weeks myself.  I am 25 weeks Friday and the doctor says its just fine.  I eat the canned Snows brand clam chowder.  I was worried becuase I love it so much now but I asked and doctor said it was fine.
