not sure that anything in it would be unsafe.

It is PERFECTLY FINE! As long as the chicken isn't raw.

Just last week I had almost chicken, pork fried rice and garden lo mein. It was DELICIOUS!

Enjoy yourself There's really only a handful of things you should avoid.. don't spend your pregnancy stressing about what you can and can't eat mama.

The most important things: high mercury fish, too much processed meat (lunch meat and hot dogs) and foods containing raw ingredients (like raw eggs, sushi, soft cheeses).

Hope you enjoy your chow mein

i've been majorly craving chinese style noodles too. yes there's nothing in them you can't have. Though some chinese food is high in salt/ msg so it's better to eat it occasionally rather than every day

I also eat sushi, and I am in the US. I love sushi, and have been eating it for YEARS.... never been sick. Honestly, I am laid back about what I eat/drink while pregnant.

Ditto! Haven't stopped eating anything while I've been pregnant tbh. Our eggs here are from salmonella vaccinated chickens so we can eat them runny, and everything else I just can't see a problem. People have been having babies for thousands of years without a do/don't eat list! As long as you are eating a healthy balanced diet you can have anything in moderation as long as you are sensible x

I have heard to stay away from sushi because if not well prepared it is very dangerous for the baby. Hence I have stopped until I've given birth. And I love sushi and sashimi!!
