Class C pregnancy: Means use it if benefits outweigh risks. Minimal research done on the subject. It is not recommended for breast feeding women. Ask your doctor how important it is to continue and if there are any alternatives.

No RAW meat/fish: Besides raw meat/fish (n minimize processed meats/cold-cuts), you should be eating a healthy, well balanced diet, and regular exercises just like everyone else should. You may need a bit more iron/calcium/folic acid which are provided in your prenatal vitamins. Only eat more to gain about 25-30lbs total during pregnancy. Consult doc or nutritionist if needed. Congrats on the pregnancy. Good luck.
