I really doubt that veggie sushi is unsafe. Is it that people are concerned about possible contact with raw fish? If that’s the case, pregnant women shouldn’t dine in any restaurants. There are so many pregnancy myths out there, listen to your doctor.

I haven’t noticed much that’s specific to our diets. in fact I thinkit’s a bit of an easy adjustment since you’re probably already use to checking ingredients and having some limitations. I loved that book that @stephee recommended. It was helpful in telling you what to say of people question the safety of your eating choices. (More than likely someone will) I would just say find a dictor or midwife that knows your diet is a healthy one and not a lacking one so they will support you. I have also been drinking Vega – it’s a nutritional drink with a lot if protein and other good stuff. I usually add peanut butter and some fruit as well. it’s pretty expensive but at least I know I’m getting what I need. However I am vegan so there may be a cheaper vegetarian solution. Good luck! 🙂

At 6 months, I haven’t found much I can’t have. Oh! The one thing I read about was that sprouts are a no go, but I always forget to ask my doctor. My OB has never shown any concern about my diet. I try to start my day with a protein shake and then pretty much carry on as usual. Well, I can’t have fruit in the morning because I throw it up… but that’s a my baby thing, not a general rule. And I have to agree, veggie sushi isn’t an issue. I’m vegan, too.
