I am 12 weeks tomorrow but have another week to wait for my scan. I have been taking vitamin B50 Complex since before BFP. I am not sure when to stop taking it? Or if I should wean?

Can anyone help please, I would be so grateful x

On whose advice are you taking it, june ? You don't need additional folic acid after 12 weeks. I've continued to take a pregnancy multivitamin but high dose supplements are generally not recommended though B vits are water soluble so it's probably hard to overdose, you'll just be peeing them out.

Congrats BTW! Hope your scan goes well.

I was on high does folic acid (5mg) in first trimester on advice of the RMC clinic and stopped at 12 weeks, now just taking the multivitamin which has 400 mcg.

I went to my GP to talk about taking it. I was told it was fine to take, took it for a couple of months prior to BFP. I had HG in my first pregnancy and was told it could also help with morning sickness, I have still been pretty sick but it certainly isn't and hasn't been HG.

I just wasn't sure when I should stop taking them. I will stop taking them after my scan at the end of the week. Thank you Bakingtins xx
