I just ate a bunch of crab legs at a buffet yesterday and I heard sh__lfish is bad for pregnant women. Did I just do harm to my baby? I'm about 5 weeks.

No, shellfish is fine. You don't want to eat a lot of swordfish, mahi mahi, tuna steaks, and there are some other fish that contains a lot of mercury. My dr said crab, lobster is fine, just not a lot of it. You should be fine.

Crab is A-OK! Like Dani said stay away from all she mentioned and also tile fish, king mackeral and shark as the mercury content is high.

Hi SM, I posted this for someone else, I love this website and it has a great link to gage the mercury levels and tells you what fish is safe/good to eat...
