Can I eat lobster while I am pregnant? I`ve been craving it like crazy I read somewhere I can eat it I just can`t eat the green stuff?
lol! I don’t have an answer for you at all, but i was minding my own business logging in to IMP and now i have a major lobster craving, too. Just seeing the word made my mouth water.
Shellfish is usually safe during pregnancy and doesn’t have that much mercury. You have to eat it in moderation, Doctors suggest 12oz a week. So if you have lobster makesure its 12 ounces or less.
My friends doctor told her she could eat it once a month..
We eat lobster at least once a month, sometimes twice. I don’t know if you’re supposed to or not but yum! Sorry I couldn’t be much help.
I was told its fine. Shellfish do not have a lot of mercury in them and thats what the doc’s want us to avoid. There are certain fish that are higher in mercury that you should avoid and there are some that you can eat in moderation. YOu can google it or call and ask your doc.
