Certainly not worth the risk during pregnancy. Cooked sushi or vegetable-only sushi should be fine, but then we'd worry about the person making the sushi having washed his hands after handling raw fish. ...Read more

I am pregnant just found out a week ago today! last night I went out to eat and ate a peice of raw chicken. I am very scared as to what will happen. ?

Most likely OK...: Raw chicken will not necessarily make you sick unless contaminated with the infamous salmonella etc... For the most part, even with contaminated with salmonella, many people don't get sick consuming it because of small number of bugs--stomach acid helps. So, it was last night and you are feeling ok now, you should be fine. If abd pain, n/v start etc, consult doc. Congrats on pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

Most likely fine: There have been a few episodes in which women have eaten deli meats with the bacteria Listeria. Though Listeria has been associated with illness and fetal death, this is not an everyday occurrence. What is done is done and statistically you are most likely fine. From now on avoid uncooked meats. Deli meats can be ok if they are cooked. Resource. http://www.cdc.gov/listeria/prevention.html ...Read more

Workup: Your physician may think it's worthwhile to check you for malabsorption / maldigestion (celiac disease, mild cystic fibrosis -- the latter's a thought with your asthma symptoms) if you truly can't gain weight eating.
