How often would you eat canned tuna? First trimester, second, etc.

Re: Canned tuna

I eat it maybe once a week.  I think the sheet the Dr gave me considered it a "safe" fish to eat.

Re: Canned tuna

I would never ever eat it. But that just cause I hate Tina. Haha. Be careful though I wanted nothing but dairy when I was pregnant. One of my favorite things was Annie's Mac and cheese with a huge glass of chocolate milk!  Poor thing came out with dairy allergies. I read something's that question wether pregnancy cravings could somehow be related to later allergies/sensitivities.

Re: Canned tuna

i was eating it a lot this time during the first trimester (i just bought the kind in the pouch rather than in the can).  i would say between weeks 10 and 16 i was eating it probably four times a week.

Re: Canned tuna

The recommendation I got from my Dr. is no more than 12oz a week. A can is usually 5oz, so abotu 2 cans per week and you are still under that.  If you ration that out, it could mean a tuna melt 5 days/week  smile

Re: Canned tuna

I never ate canned tuna when I was pregnant. I heard it was high in Mercury. But I am sure if its in little quantities or tuna in moderation, it should be OK. But I never liked tuna in the first place, so staying away from it, was a very easy thing for me to do.

Re: Canned tuna

I think you just need to be careful about the kind of tuna.  The white tuna is higher is mercury and should be limited.  Cheap, regular tuna is fine.

Re: Canned tuna

Re: Canned tuna

I completely avoided it during pregnancy.  I always thought you were supposed to.  I don't recall my OB saying anything about it though.

Re: Canned tuna

I ate some kind of fish once a week, because I love it,  I never heard about cravings leading to allergies, I hope not, cause if it does my little man will never be able to enjoy oreos!!!!  lol

Re: Canned tuna
