My Dr. told me moderation was the key word, but to stay away from certain types of fish with high levels of mercury.
I found this for you online: "Although itís important to follow the advice about shark, swordfish, marlin and fresh tuna, thereís no problem with eating most types of fish during pregnancy, as part of a healthy balanced diet."
Looks like I'll be having that for dinner tonight then! I love fish and I knew that shark and swordfish weren't good to eat (because of the high levels of mercury in it). I just wanted to make sure about the other fish species. I wouldn't want to risk the health of my precious package.
It's so great to be able to come here and find the answers that we are looking for!

IT'S A GIRL!!!
If you know much about fish, my Dr told me, if I am ever wondering, to stay away from fish that eat other fish. But, he even said a can of tuna per week would be alright, but no more. So, fish sticks, even if they have a bit of mercury, I am sure would be alright. Honestly, though, fish sticks are often so processed, there may not be much actual fish in them anyhow! Enjoy, and just like Heaven said, everything in moderation is just fine. My Dr tells me that all the time.
I have learned that I can keep going long after I can't.
