My doctor said sushi was fine but in moderation. You have to make sure you aren’t eating too much of a fish that may contain high levels of mercury but a few peices every once in a while isn’t high risk. I haven’t had any yet but I’m sure I’ll have some eventually but only a few peices of anything raw. I looove me some sushi!!

I still eat sushi. I get the eel rolls or I have them make me spicy “tuna” rolls but I substitute crab meat for tuna. It does the trick.

I also have an iced coffee once in awhile! *gasp!*

I went out for sushi rolls last week and ordered only rolls with cooked fish. And told the waitress I couldn’t have raw fish and to ask the chef to put my rolls on a separate plate.

I’m not the most by-the-books pregnant lady (I had half a glass of wine this week and it was so worth it) but the raw fish line was one that I wasn’t willing to cross. It’s a personal decision though – just make sure to read up on why preggos aren’t supposed to have it, and the consequences the might happen so you can make a fully informed decision.

Talk to your doctor about it; he/she should explain the actual risk levels and help you decide what you’re comfortable with eating/what you should avoid.

Personally, I don’t like regular sushi, so I always eat vegetarian sushi when we go out anyway.  I think it’s delicious!

I just go and get the cooked sushi.

A california roll is better than no sushi at all IMO.

I miss sushi too Cry But I checked Sweden’s health advisory site for pregnant women and it says I can eat it. But there isn’t very many Japanese restaurants around my area … none that I 100% trust. Heck, when I was in the States for holiday, I even passed sushi while eating at my fave Japanese restaurant. I just don’t wanna risk it.

@Moja Milosc: Eh, I’d say if you go to an actualy JAPANESE place, high quality don’t worry about it. But I wouln’t go to any American place.

Also, I would totally eat raw fish. If 1 can of tuna per week is safe during pregnancy, one meal of sushi per week should be fine. BUT, I also drink a half glass of wine every few weeks, and work out exactly the way I used to. And I’m not a doctor.

@cvbee:  Ahh!!  This is totally making me crave sushi, too!  I’d be safe about it, though, and only eat cooked sushi rolls.  Spicy tuna rolls are my favorite, but there are plently of safer and equally yummy options of sushi out there!

I love sushi as well and have had some cooked rolls while pregnant.  Spider roll and dragon roll are cooked and taste wonderful to my pregnant self.  I googled before going to the restaurant.  The only thing to watch out for is each restaurant prepares things a little differently.  One restaurant I couldn’t have the spider roll because it has roe/eggs on it, but the other restaurant I could.  Just be sure to really read the menu prior to ordering.

 one more option: making your own sushi is pretty fun

you need to buy: sushi rice, rice wine vinegar (which you add to the rice), nori papers (for rolling) and then you can put inside any veggies at your house, or use a can of crab meat or tuna.  Highly recommend baking veggies in the oven and then rolling them into the rolls.  Delish! And 100 percent raw-fish contamination free!
