    Hello again, I just found out that I'm pregnant again. Not planned but excited and scared. I'm 4 weeks 4 days today from LMP. Today I noticed that I'm tried more today then last weeks and my breast are hurting a tad more then also. I've been pregnant be4. How many others here are feeling things this soon. I go to my OB intake Nov. 30 I'll be around 6 weeks then and cant wait. Also how much fish is to much. I eat fish and salmon twice a week. I know tuna is not good to eat a lot of. I also cut back on red meat but eat a lot of Chicken. Thanks everyone.

    Yes its normal sore breast and tiredness are some of your first symptoms. I know samon is one of the fish that have high level of mercury. You should limit it. i read it on pg myths on web md

    Here's something from the 5th edition (2004)of "Your Pregnancy Week By Week" (pg 271):

    Good Fish and Shellfish Choices. Below is a list of fish you can eat as often as you like during pregnancy:
    bass
    catfish
    cod
    croaker
    flounder
    freshwater perch
    haddock
    herring
    mackerel (not King mackerel)
    marlin
    ocean perch
    orange roughy
    Pacific halibut
    pollack
    red snapper
    salmon
    scrod
    sole

    You may eat the following shellfish as often as you like IF you thoroughly cook them:
    clams
    crab
    lobster
    oysters
    scallops
    shrimp

    Remember: DO NOT exceed a total of 12 ounces of fish a week!



    It's been a few years since this edition was published and I don't know if they've changed any of the recommendations, but I hope this helps guide you until you can meet with your doctor and ask his/her opinion.
