By week 11, you're probably feeling better and your appetite is returning, so it's especially important to pay attention to what you're eating. Remember that even if you take a vitamin supplement, you should still be getting the majority of your nutrients from the food you eat. Try to eat a variety of healthful foods like leafy greens, dried beans and peas, lean protein, fruits, and whole grains. Two to three servings of fish per week is recommended from varities like  salmon, shrimp, pollock, tilapia, catfish, cod, and light canned tuna that have low amounts of mercury (but avoid shark, swordfish, Gulf tilefish, and king mackerel). You should also avoid other foods that may contain bacteria, including raw or undercooked meat, anything that contains raw eggs, and unpasteurized cheese or juice, since the bacteria in those foods may harm your baby.
