8 Pregnancy-Approved Sushi Spots

View as Map

A baby bump is the new black this year—everyone from Kate Middleton to Kim Kardashian to Jimmy Fallon's surrogate sported them. So Eater Louisville is sending some love the expectant momma's way with suggestions for how to wine, dine and wait the long nine.

During pregnancy you're not supposed to smoke, drink, hang out in the hot tub, get a tattoo, enter a belly-flop contest, gnaw on a mercury thermometer or eat raw fish (the last one, according to the American Pregnancy Association). For sushi lovers this hiatus can be devastating, but the delectable Japanese dish doesn't have to be avoided completely. These eight local sushi places have cooked or veggie options that might just help you get your sushi fix.

Know of a great place to get sushi when you're eating for two? Leave it in the comments.
