Anyway, so you need to be careful with those to only take ONE at a time. It suggests one at every meal. If you take TWO to try to make up for it.. uh, oh, *fish burps*. I am not kidding. And that put me off fish oil most days in the first trimester, but it's much better now.
I wish I had known about the orange tasting stuff. I have, oh, aabout a million more pills to go before I can go justifying more -j
