  • What are the rules on seafood when you are pg?
    I know I am supposed to stay away from shark, swordfish and other big ones because of the high levels of mercury. I can't remember if shellfish is ok. I really want some lobster or some shrimp.

  • See I think it is ok if it is cooked but I can't remember for sure.

  • I think as long as it's not high in mercury and cooked it's okay.
     
    (been a while for me since being PG, so some of the rules have changed.

  • I think its the mercury which is in large deep sea fish. Tuna or shark should be limited. (I think.)
