    Ya they're very expensive...am taking the pregnacare only because I didn't know what other ones to take and I think I'd get confused if I was taking a bunch of diff ones. You're not a fish eater? Neither am I really, try and force myself to have one portion a week but I take the supplement...omega that comes w/ Pregnacare. Am sure it will be fine as long as you're taking it now x

    Be careful not to take too much omega 3, especially if it is not pregnancy approved vits, i read somewhere that it is dangerous to baby in large amounts, let me see if i can find the link!

    Here is something about it, its something to do with high contcentrations of Vit A and birth defects so you have to get pregnancy approved or correct doeses etc :
    "Omega-3 supplements are available but check to make sure that your supplements are not made from fish livers. The liver can contain high amounts of retinol vitamin A, which has been linked to birth defects. Omega-3 supplements not derived from fish livers but rather from the body of the fish are less likely to contain this type of vitamin A. If you would prefer to err on the side of caution, you can always look for supplements that are made specifically for pregnant women."
