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!

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.
