i heared you can't it fresh cut fish. but process fish is ok. I ate fish sandwiches all the way though my pregnency and my son is just fine. but play it safe and live that stuff alone until you talk to someone who knows it for sure. call wallgreens. they might know.

i ate it. I think its safe as long as you eat it in moderation. So eating a tuna sandwich would be perfectly ok.

1 serving of tuna a week is what my doc told me was safe.

yeah its fine. When I was preg. with DD I ended up with gestational diabetes and the nutritionist said I could have tuna as one of the few blan foods I was allowed to eat. LOL

You're fine as long as you don't eat it that offten. And yes you can get tuna through WIC, but it's only when breastfeeding.
