AnswerIn general, yes. The FDA has issued some warnings about consuming too much fish containing too much Mercury. But shellfish isn't one of the highest risks in that category. You should also keep an eye on local warnings.

See www.marchofdimes.com/professionals/681_1152.asp for more info.

AnswerDoctor's say not to eat shellfish during pregnancy due to a natural substance in them...could cause painful cramps or miscarriage

There is no danger in eating shellfish while pregnant unless you are allergic.

Within moderation. Remember, sometimes women can get bad indigestion from rich or spicy foods so take it easy. Enjoy! a pregnant woman can eat seafood but she must be very careful about what seafoods she can eat because a lot of seafood contains mercury, which can be very harmful to the fetus. Bottom-feeder fish are the worst. A pregnant woman should definitely avoid: * swordfish * shark * blowfish * tilefish * king mackerel The following fish should not be eaten because they can contain industrial pollutant in their fatty tissues: * blue fish * stripped bass * salmon * pike * trout * walleye http://pregnancy.about.com/cs/nutritioninpregn/a/aaabavoidfood.htm

No. Crabs are said to injest the flesh of the foetus from around 18-30 weeks. They pinch it with their pincers and consume it through their mouths. There was once a pregnant lady that died from eating a crab. It physically ate her child, and then her. Dangerous, vile, and disgusting creatures. I don't know why you would want to eat one anyway.
