Re: sea food??

  • why would you be scared to eat fully cooked shrimp and crab? - just wondering.

  • I think it's fine as long as there's no history of allergies to it.  I'm not a big seafood fan, but I have been eating the crab rangoon from the Chinese restaurant.  Although, I'm not really sure if that is REAL crab.

  • Most questions, I'm gonna say ask your doctor to be safe. I only know there are certain fish pregnant women shouldn't eat because of mercury. But I don't know about shrimp, crab or lobster.

    You could try googling it or something. But go to a medical site, not just like yahoo answers or something that regular people just post their thoughts on.

  • I've read that as long as you do not have it more than like twice a week it is okay. I would think if you have it every once in awhile and just make sure it is fully cooked then it would probably be fine:)

  • I personally do not like buffets and will not eat them. But that has nothing to do with being pregnant. Once, years and years ago, I saw a mom and her son walking the buffet and he kept touching all the food, and she didn't stop him. So that made me realize that people can touch, sneeze, cough, whatever and you're eating it. It just personally creeps me out.

     maybe if you go at lunch time when it's busy, they will put out fresh and you won't have to wait after alot of people have gone through. When we would go to a buffet cause my family liked it, we'd always go right at busy dinner time and they'd always be putting fresh stuff out so I felt safe LOL

    Same!  I eat seafood, especially crabs, multiple times a week.

    I found this to be a good webiste to check out fish options, it tells you which are the higher mercury and lower ones.

  • Fish and seafood are fine a few times a week.  Just avoid fish that is high in mercury like swordfish, mackerel, etc. 

    Most of what I eat is fish and while I've cut down a bit, it is very good for you and hasn't given me any problems.

    This. 100%. The American Pregnancy link a PP posted is great. It tells you exactly what seafood is OK. For the record, Snow crab legs are my favorite thing in the world, and they're a "lower" mercury food. Yay! I believe shrimp is in the lowest category!

  • You can't eat deep sea fish. Like Tuna, king fish and other big fish. But I would also be careful with the buffet, they are not very sanitary and you could get sick easily. If you weren't pregnant, buffets are ok. But they recommend not to eat buffet food.
