Is it safe to eat? I have been eating it breaded. I ocassionally have had clam strips which are breaded also. Someone told me that its not okay to eat, but my doctor never mentioned anything. I have a doctors appt next week and I will ask about it. What do you guys say? Yes No?
Shrimp is fine. It's actually a good source of iron! The reasons certain seafood are avoided: raw or undercooked foods increase the chances of food poisoning; some fish are high in mercury, so should be avoided or well-cooked, at least. These fish are larger, eat other fish and live longer before theyre caught, so they have more time to build up mercury. Shrimp is small and doesn't live long, so it's relatively free from toxins. I would only avoid it during pregnancy if I had never had it before and therefore don't know about a possible allergy to it.
It is fine in moderation I do not eat it raw only cooked. I eat sushi but I make it at home with imitation crab. Tuna is ok so long as it is only 12oz a day or less. Fish is a great source of Iron and Omega 3 fatty acids! Good for brain development and good to help thin the blood when pregnant!
Awsome! I didnt think anything was wrong with it. I really dont eat it alot. After I ate the clams my stomach felt funny, I dunno what it was. I will give the seafood a break for a little while, but now that I know its alright, then awesome. I was just worried it wasnt safe for baby! Thanks Ladies
