Question Craving Fish??

There is a possibility that I may be pregnant and I have craved fish bigtime... I have eaten it every night all week last week and 2 times this week. (cant get enough) I have heard that fish is not good during pregnancy. Is this true? and if im pregnant would it hurt the baby since I have consumed soooooooo much??
I have 3 other children but NEVER CRAVED FISH!!!!! lol

Thanks

Well to find out if you are pg take an hpt.. cravings definitely come with pg. Fish really isn't so bad when pg.. it contains the Omega 3 fatty which is good for your babies growth and is hard to get anywhere else other than fish usually.. I am 9wks and I have actually been craving fish here lately.. I just buy the small fish steaks in a can.. like sardines.. eat a couple of those a week so not to consume to much fish cause too much can be bad.. Good luck keep us posted!

If nothing happens I'll take a HPT on 8/25. So far nothing. Do you think what fish I have eaten would have done anything to the baby if I am?
Thanks for you reply.

I really don't think you have anything to worry about.. I have heard of many women that eat a lot of fish and are pregnant.. I mean take islander women for example.. I am sure fish is a large part of their everyday diet and they have healthy babies all the time..More healthy than most women in the States have.. I think it depends on what is used to process it if it is actually bad or not.. but fresh fish.. I think would be no problem.. or cooked.. You have nothing to be worried about and I hope you find out soon.. Let me know..
