It's a good thing Kim Kardashian is already comfortable with being in the spotlight 24/7, because now that she's an official Celeb Mom-to-Be, the sanctimonious preggers police are gonna seriously scrutinize her every move. In fact, they've already started. Kim's first "offense" (maybe)? Having dinner at a sushi restaurant.
Oh no! Everybody knows eating raw fish when you're expecting is like the worst most dangerous thing EVER!! For shame, Kim!!
Except maybe it's not really such a big deal. First of all, we don't even know if she ate raw fish -- sheesh, maybe she ordered a California roll and edamame! And even if she did go for the sashimi, so what? I can assure you that giving up sushi is not something women in Japan have to expect when they're expecting. (Lower mercury level fish like salmon are recommended, however.) Look, I'm not saying pregnancy isn't a time to be cautious, but there's no need to be paranoid.
Every time Kim goes out to eat for the next nine (or however many are left) months, she's going to eat or drink something that stirs up a controversy: Kim Kardashian ate brie with her baguette at brunch! Soft cheese, aaaack! Kim Kardashian took a sip of wine at dinner, lord have mercy! Kim Kardashian went to Starbucks and what if she didn't get decaf?!
But the truth is, pretty much everything in moderation is probably okay when you're pregnant. Yes, soft cheese (especially unpasteurized soft cheese) and deli meat can carry listeria, but they rarely do. Unfortunately, ANY food can carry ANYTHING (speaking of listeria, remember the deadly cantaloupe outbreak? Nobody saw THAT one coming!). Nothing is 100 percent safe.
As for caffeine and alcohol, should you cut back? Yeah, probably. Do you need to run screaming if somebody offers you a sip of their latte? No. No you don't. And neither does Kim Kardashian.
Did you eat sushi when you were pregnant?
