Craving for tuna

Last week, I’ve had tuna sandwiches as breakfast for 3 days and on Saturday, I decided to buy a canned tuna mayonnaise & make my own sandwiches for this week. Then today I suddenly recalled that I’ve seen/heard somewhere that tuna is not that safe for pregnant woman to consume?

To clear my doubt, I quickly went to the web & search for relevant information & advices and most of them claimed that pregnant woman should have avoided tuna, esp. canned ones because of uncertainties about the risk of mercury contamination to developing fetuses.

Oh my god, apart from what I had last week, this week alone I’ve finished up one whole can of tuna over the past 3 days!!! I don’t know how bad this is going to affect my baby, a little? Or not at all? Sigh*** I started to feel guilty about it if it does cause any harm…… I just hope everything is fine.

Hi K--I would think that the only way someone would be impacted is if they consumed a tremendous amount over a very long period of time.

I understand why you crave it, though (smile). It does taste good!
