Can you eat smoked salmon slices in pregnancy, as I love it, but am afraid to eat at moment just in case??

I was told to avoid smoked salmon cos there are things on the surface (little worms i was told) that aren't advisable to eat when pregnant. Which is a shame cos i love smoked salmon!

I have eaten loads of smoked salmon and I'm 20 weeks and everything is fine
I just eat what I feel like, I can't stand the "can I, can't I" it gets too confusing and then you start to feel guilty no matter what you eat.

Thanks for both your replies, I feel the same at the moment, people are always saying to me you can't eat that, I just want to eat the foods I like at the moment, as I am finding I am rapidly going off some foods I normally like.

years ago people use to just eat what they wanted and it never did any harm ( this is what my hubbys nan keeps telling me!!) xx

I was completely craving a smoked salmon sandwich so I had one, but made sure it was super-fresh. A good compromise might be hot-smoked salmon, as I'm sure I heard that when it's been cured by heat and the flesh looks cooked, it's safe to eat.
Mmm - forbidden fruits - they become so tasty!! I'd love a great big seafood feast but keep telling myself it'll be my first post-baby treat meal!
Can it be bad for you if you crave it?!?!?

After readin all the replies think i mite treat myself to a sneaky bit of smoked salmon!

i'm not a great fan of smoked salmon but it's really been annoying me that i can't just buy a pack of prawns n munch them for my lunch at work like i used to! are the whole food restrictions still applicable if you're breast feeding???

I was told that prawns r ok as long as they r properly defrosted if frozen and cooked. Think the main restrictions when b/f r peanuts if there are allergies in family and keeping alcohol to a minimum, altho haven't really read up much bout it yet

trouble is like munching prawns straight out of the packet! don't think i've ever had cooked prawns tbh!!! lol

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
