So I was told that fish in early pregnancy was a no no. But now that I'm in the second trimester, I am CRAVING it like no one's business. Can I eat more fish now that I'm further along?

I love salmon, especially with honey/soy sauce/garlic. You can have fish; you just need to make sure it doesn't have mercury. Something else I love is salmon patties. If you buy canned salmon, it usually has a recipe on the can.

That sounds amazing! The fish that I have right now is Alaskan Pollock. So I'll have to double check to see if it has mercury in it.

You can eat fish in the first Trimester but limit it to once per week and stick to lowest mercury fish.

You can do tuna up to once a week (I love chunk white solid albacore) and Salmon and trout are great lower mercury fish (but I personally stick to wild caught NOT farm raised because a lot of them are kept in small pools and the swim/eat each others....leavings.)

Salmon is great during pregnancy (I think it's the DHA?). I've heard the same thing about limiting tuna along with any other large fish higher up on the food chain.
