DHA And Omega 3 S

Anyone taking DHA or Omega 3 suppliments? I do not eat fish so I don't get this in my diet naturally, and I've read that during the 3rd tri - this is important for brain and eye development. I drink OJ with DHA added to it, but I have heard that some people take it in vitamin form. I plan to ask my Dr at my next visit next week about taking suppliments, but I was wondering if any of you have experience with this.

i've also been taking expecta since the very beginning of pregnancy. it's basically fish oil caplets. one time one of the gelcaps opened andit smelled SO bad like fish, it was disgusting. But they taste fine as long as they don't break open! They sell it at Target or Walmart... i've heard good things about it.You can search for their website online

I had bought some Flax Seed Oil, but they were horse pills and made me vomit b/c of the size so I couldn't take them.

I'm also taking primacare vitamins. They are horse pills and hard to choke down. Make sure to take them on a full stomach. I took the fish oil one on an empty stomach and kept burping up fish taste, it was gross. A nice side effect is that my hair and nails have never looked better, and my skin looks good too.

My prenatals are Duet DHA and they're fantastic! You pee bright yellow, but that's another story ;-)

Thanks ladies! I ordered some expecta for this last month or so that I have left! It might be a little late, but better late than never, right??

Antwife I've been taking the SAME vitamins my entire pregnancy, Duet DHA ec (enteric coated). One big horse pill, one little gelcap and I like them a lot as far as vitamins go. I don't eat fish at all either and so I feel good about taking the omega-3 supplement.

my doctor suggested to buy eggs that have dha and walnuts are also a good source.
