I've been hearing rumors & myths about seafood & pregnancy.

I LOVE fish, but only Haddock. Fish Frys, Breaded, yummy. Lately though we've been buying the Gorton's Breaded Fish Filets (frozen) - that is still ok to eat right???

Ugh, I am such a newbie!

Yes, that is ok to eat.
What you should NOT be eating is Sushi. Which totally sucks because I LOVE sushi

Oh geez - I am NOT a sushi fan so I'm OK with that!

I thought I read somewhere that you can eat sushi as long as its cooked fish?

You're right. The raw part is the problem. However, I love me some raw fish
But that is basically what I meant, sushi (when raw) should not be consumed.

:-( that stinks that you can't eat what you like!! Maybe pregnancy will turn you OFF to sushi so you don't have to think about it!

Maybe, haha, it didn't the last 2 times. However, the cold lunch meat ,my body did turn itself off from wanting that when I was pregnant the last two times. (Be careful with that as well, lysteria, not good!) Both time I was pregnant before if I even thought of a lunchmeat sandwich I started gagging. That is starting to come around this time too. Which is actually good because I also love big deli turkey sandwiches. Hehehe

You also have to be careful with seafood that contains Mercury.

You have to be careful with certain seafood, they have too much mercury. Like you should not have tuna more than once a week.

With lunchmeat, you have to heat it up for a certain amount of time before eating. I will have to look that up...

Weighing in as having been through pregnancy a few times before, and having almost 10 years between my youngest and the one before that, I was amazed at the "new" list that was given to me last year of what I COULDN'T eat. The only thing I really stayed away from was sashimi (because I don't like sushi rolls), alchohol, and caffeine. I treated myself to chocolate or some caffeine here and there, but not overboard. As with almost everything else in life, moderation is the key.

Oddly enough, I am not a big fan of cold cuts, but I really crave them when I am pregnant. :-)

shell fish is a no no and fish like tuna, basically any fish that's a predator will have higher mercury levels. Canned tuna however is much safer. With lunch meat also avoid nitrates and nitrites, they can result in some mean headaches, and are just not very good for you.

Haddock is safe to eat. Like the other ladies said it's the uncooked (many types of sushi) and other fish that may continue high amounts of mercury are what you have to be careful of. As well I don't think we're suppose to eat a lot of it, but it's definitely good to have in your diet. Here is the link if you want to read more about what to avoid from the mayoclinic. Pregnancy and fish: What's safe to eat? - MayoClinic.com

Also here is some other fish listed as safe:
Shrimp
Crab
Salmon
Pollock
Catfish
Cod
Tilapia

Add some nuts, seeds, beans, or peas to your salads... or add them all
