    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.

    I was feeling very tired, with the sre breasts and all that about 3 weeks ago. My Primary Physician's office says I'm about 4 weeks along.

    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:
    freshwater perch
    mackerel (not King mackerel)
    ocean perch
    orange roughy
    Pacific halibut
    red snapper

    You may eat the following shellfish as often as you like IF you thoroughly cook them:

    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.
