    I was raised on seafood, my husband loves seafood and pre pregnancy I could somewhat tolerate it. But post pregnancy, the smell and texture of many fishes, oysters, clams etc is truly unpalatable. I can eat mild things like flounder, shrimp, baked clams etc. But a thick whole fish? I would have to gag it down.
