I'll be 37 weeks on Friday and I am craving smoked oysters(the canned kind). Is it okay for me to go ahead and eat them? I'm thinking it's just the raw ones to stay away from but wasn't sure. Thanks!

I think you should do some research before providing false information to someone. It is wise to stay away from shellfish that which are high in mercury. However, things like salmon are not going to hurt you in fact it provides a lot omega 3's and fatty acids for brain and eye development. A lot of people have children...that doesn't mean they have a degree or qualities to give prenatal nutritional information.

Thank you. I ended up chunking them when I couldn't tell what the expiration date said a little while ago. And I was reading up online about listeria and decided it wasn't a good idea. Luckily I'm less than 3 weeks away so I can wait. I think I'll celebrate once he gets here with some all you can eat crab legs..lol.

oh, and it's raw cookie dough and raw eggs you can't have, you could go eat a rare steak and be fine, but not fish....

NO! Sorry, i know you can't help your cravings but fish is a big no no, among other things like hot dogs, and lunch meat (!!!!!! i know!!!! i have three kids, thats a lot of months of not eating good subs :(    )   Atleast you're almost there, if you want a more defined list of what you can't eat ask your nurse at your next appointment.
