DH and I are away this weekend doing some shopping. I am SO tired!! It has to be because of my little apple seed; I can usually shop the day away. We always eat at Joe's Crab Shack while we're here and I fully intended on eating crab legs today, but totally freaked when it was time for lunch. I did my research and know that crab legs being really low on the mercury scale are fine to eat in moderation during pregnancy, but I just got scared. I don't want to harm the baby. Am I crazy? I love crab legs!
Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
During my first pregnancy I followed all the "rules" but after that I kinda got more relaxed. With my second pregnancy tuna was so good that I ate it often, but I also bought the organic low mercury kind.
I don't think its bad if you don't want to eat it at all. You are just doing what you feel is right. But if you also deprive yourself of everything you love for 9 months it can get old FAST
Did you get anything good at the outlet mall? Any preggo clothes??
I think a little seafood in moderation is fine too. Everything in moderation. With my son I craved this salad from this place in the mall with tuna and would have it once or twice a week that the owner got to know me well. I went back the other day and he was asking if I was having another soon as he just had a baby last year and I said Im pregnant thats why Im back and he laughed. I love seafood so I try to be good but I cant stay away for 9 months. Eel rolls, smoked salmon, etc calls me now and then so I let myself have some now and then to help.
The exhaustion has been kicking my butt also! I don't remember being this tired ALL the time with Connor! It's crazy!!
I agree about everything in moderation. We eat fish at least once a week, so I won't change that. I did make some chicken salad today so I can eat it on a sandwich for lunch all week, instead of the lunch meat I usually have!
Yay for shopping. I agree with the other ladies everything in moderation. First babies though I totally understand the freak out! I was much more relaxed the 2nd and 3rd time this time I am completely relaxed.
