Question: Hello plz answer my question, can i eat chicken and fish, am 17 weeks now
Answer: Hello dear. Chicken promotes metabolism and build up energy in the body. Chicken that has been recently cooked and is still under the warmer is fine. However please consume it moderately. Also confirm with your dieteican before consumption. You should limit how much you eat of these fish to two portions a week. Shark, swordfish and marlin contain much higher levels of mercury, so you shouldn't eat these fish at all while you're pregnant. Instead, you can eat as much as you want of any of the following salmon, tilapia, shrimp, tuna (canned-light), cod, and catfish.  You can also confirm this with your doctor before consuming. Take care.
