Fish is a great and healthy food to have while pregnant! Its a simple matter of what TYPE of fish to avoid like the large salt water fish that contain high levels of mercury. Fresh water fish like trout, catfish, fish sticks, flounder, salmon, craoker, and haddok are ok to eat. Tuna can be eaten in moderation (one serving a week). Large fish like shark, tile fish, swordfish, tuna steaks, sea bass, Halibut and other LARGE saltwater fish are known to contain high levels of methyl mercury, a substance that can potentially cause neurological damage when consumed in large amounts. Farm-raised trout and catfish, Pacific salmon, and fish sticks are safe. Shellfish (shrimp, crawfish, crab, etc)are also fine to eat while pregnant. Remember that all of these are to be well cooked, not raw or smoked.
Other foods to avoid are-
-Raw eggs (Caesar salads and eggnog!!!)
-Soft cheeses, including Brie, Camembert, Mexican-style, and any other cheese that may be made with inadequately pasteurized milk, can harbor Listeria.
-Do not drink raw milk, or eat foods that contain unpasteurized milk.
-Unwashed fruits & vegetables
-Foods & drinks that contain caffeine (limit or avoid!) tea, coffee, and colas
-Saccharin (NutraSweet is preferable)
- Liver should be avoided whilst pregnant (including all pate) as is contains a high level of Vitamin A which can be very harmful to your unborn baby.
Anemia is common during pregnancy so you could look for other ways of increasing your vitamin A levels - remember to take your folic acid supplement!. Peanuts are also a healthy snack and should only be avoided if you are allergic to them.
It is probably best to avoid it. Although some seafood is safe while pregnant you may want to avoid a lot that it might contain. The main concern for eating seafood while pregnant is the amount of mercury levels fish contain. You certainly don't want to consume any bottom feeder fish. Avoid eating fish such as swordfish, blowfish, shark, some shrimp, some calamri etc.
