    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Before I became pregnant I was taking Nature's Bounty Fish oil 1200 mg.
    Now I am 4 weeks pregnant and want to know if I can keep taking this to get my Omega 3?
    Thank you in advance for any information.

    Congratulations!

    A study from 2006 reported that mothers who take fish oil supplements during pregnancy may improve their baby's hand-eye coordination and boost brain development .

    However, please do check with your doctor before taking fish oil or any other supplements while pregnant.

    I hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months -

    Haylen

    p.s. And avoid eating fish with mercury . (Swordfish, tilefish, king mackerel, and shark)
