Crawfish while pregnant?

I live in Louisiana, and it's crawfish season!!  Laissez les bon temps rouler!  Seriously though, I'm 9 weeks along, and I'm getting conflicting reports on whether it's OK to eat crawfish while pregnant.  They're a low-mercury seafood, but even so, I want to hear some other thoughts about them before I run out and gorge on 5 pounds worth (which is what I really want to do right now!!)  Thanks, ladies, and best wishes to you all!

crawfish are fine...according to american pregnancy association ( you can look on the website ) they have a list of safe fish according to the fda...crawfish are on the safest list. :) can't say im big on crawfish..but enjoy.

I've heard it's fine, as long as it's cooked fully and you don't take a lot. I think the main concern is the amount of sodium that's in them.
