First, check on the EPO. I've heard that it can cause uterine contractions so you may want to check into that first. I have no idea if that is true or not. Secondly, I'm a big believer that nutrients from food are best in their natural form. I don't always follow that, but I do beleive that. I'm vegetarian so any fish thing is out for me. If you do start taking fish oil caplets just look into first. They have a reputation for going rancid quickly. Also, many people report fishy burping after taking them. I would imagine this would be less of a problem if they were not spoiled, but I don't know. Personally, I make do on ground flax seed. I sprinkle about 1 tablespoon on my cereal every morning, sometimes I add some to my yogurt. My midwife says this is sufficient so I guess I believe her. Also, flax seed helps with constipation so that's an added bonus. It can go bad quickly though, so you have to keep it in the fridge. HTH.
