My husband and I are TTC baby number 1. I’ve been trying to follow some advice that i’ve read here and have been taking a folic acid and vit d pill from Boots.

I’ve realised that I forgot to take it can I take 2 today or should I just leave it? Is there such a thing as too much folic acid and vit d?!

If it were me, this would be my thinking: just take the one today- it's a daily dose so the body is likely just to excrete the excess.
However, I am no expert/doctor!

I would take one a day only although don't think you can OD on it.

Okay thanks smile two different opinions...I haven't taken it yet. Might just leave it. Lots of people don't start taking it until they know they are pregnant surely!
