A study by the Harvard Medical School reports that it is ok to eat fish if you're pregnant and it may even make your baby smarter. The study looked at babies born to mamas; both who had diets with and without fish. Mamas with diets higher in low-mercury fish had babies with higher mental development scores. Did you catch that catch; you do need to eat low mercury fish. Fish that is high in mercury can still be potentially dangerous to your baby.

29 yummy fish to enjoy during pregnancy. My friend wanted sushi (like in the picture above) during pregnancy, which you shouldn't eat because raw seafoods are a no no during pregnancy. So she stayed away. I hate sushi; but love coffee and during pregnancy I stayed away from it. Have you given up a food item you love due to pregnancy?
