I took a DHA supplement with my last pregnancy and still do while nursing. I will probably continue taking it after I finish nursing b/c of the health benefits for me.

I was encouraged to take Expecta (don't know if I'm allowed to list a brand name, so moderators ** me out if you need too!)- it does not include fish oils, but does include DHA.

It is not cheap, but I think it's worth it.

My doctor told me to stop all supplements when I got pregnant, including the fish oil. So I quit taking it, but I drink soy milk with omega3s, and the peanut butter and mayo I use have omega3s, which is what the fish oil is for.

I took it with my last pregnancy well as much as I could. I had a hard time getting it down with how big it was and with the smell of it. It was Dr recommended and Ive heard wonderful things about it.

I have been taking fish oil this whole pregnancy and I love it! I can think more clearly when I do. Be sure if you do take it that it is third party tested and has no heavy metals or any other bad stuff. It also helps to thin your blood so if you have clotting problems it can be helpful.

Hi ladies...I have been hearing a lot of hype about the benefits of fish oil during pregnancy...does anyone take this? Was it Dr. recommended? I am hearing that it benefits both mother and baby in brain development, mood, etc. I plan on asking my Dr. about it at my next visit but I was just wondering if anyone else takes it! Thanks!
