I wouldn’t worry. There are so many things they say to not eat and drink during pregnancy (I’m guilty of many), yet many women do and their babies are just fine.

no. & even if we said you should, you can’t un-eat it, so try not to worry

I think that it’s in the stay away because it has higher amounts of mercury than other fish so they don’t want you eating it in moderation, because it would be very infrequently that you could have it. All fish have mercury in them, and some mercury is okay, so ingesting mercury in moderation isn’t a big deal over the course of pregnancy. I would just stay away from fish for a couple of weeks to make sure you don’t overdo it on the mercury!
