Helo priya its better to avoid dry fish as it contains lot of salt which will increase the sodium level in our body. If you are very much tempted you can have little but not too often. You can eat lot of vegetables, fruits, soups, fish, meat, dry fruits. Try to include calcium and protein rich foods and avoid fast foods. Try to take small sized fish than the huge ones as the mercury content will be low on small fish which is good for your body. Drink lot of water.

Hi priya ! Fishes aren't the safest option for consumption especially when u r expecting due to the risk of mercury contamination. However u could consume it in moderate amounts .

priya as you know fish come from water and these days the water is contaminated with heavy metals like mercury and those residing in that water also get that contaminated by the wate. So, if you eat it , it will lead to Mercury contamination of your body, too, which is harmful for the growth of the embryo so it should be maintained that one must avoid those things which are unnecessarily causing health hazards .You can have an organic and healthy way of pregnancy by opting for fresh fruits vegetable nuts and milk. You can have cheese for calcium requirements, for proteins you can have pulses and nuts, but nuts are optional, Ask your doctor whether you can eat it or not. But try to remain as organic and healthy in your dietary interest. It is easier to digest also and have all the required nutritional value required by your body
