In brief: Best to avoid

According to the information I obtained, Basa is contaminated with antibiotics, many of which are banned in the US due to safety concerns.
In general pregnant women are advised to limit intake of many types of fish due to toxic chemicals or metals accumulating in their tissue. you are still in the phase of pregnancy wher defects can occur. So I wouldn't eat it. Pregnant or not.
