Yes, as long as you tell the doctor that you are pregnant and your tummy can be shielded. Tuna is fine as long as you don't eat too much.

If your dentist knows you are pregnant, he will do it in a safe way. I am sure it''s fine, let''s see what the doc says.

Tuna - as advised by my gynae, no more than 1 tin per week as the mercury levels are high.
