You can eat crab within moderation. Remember, sometimes women can get bad indigestion from rich or spicy foods so take it easy.

a pregnant woman can eat seafood but she must be very careful about what seafoods she can eat because a lot of seafood contains Mercury, which can be very harmful to the fetus. Just to play it safe, seek advice from your Doctor.
