In brief: The 3 good meals...

Basically you had three good meals over several weeks before conception and the fish may contain higher than normal mercury levels--a lb of fish each meal? I would not worry about it.
Typically consuming large amount of mercury-contaminated fish over long period of time can accumulate to concerning levels, but 3 good meals should not be cause for concern--just becareful now. Congrats & good luck.
