My consultant said i could stop taking this at 12 weeks which I took to mean I could but didn't have to, and so i've just continued with my 5mg folic acid and Vit D supplement. I paid for the prescription so figured I might as well finish the course.
Pregnancy paranoia has me today at 14 weeks and i'm wondering if there are any reasons why continuing with the higher dose could be a bad thing?
I asked my midwife of I could carry on taking my Pregnacare tablets that are meant for 1st trimester rather than buying the next stage box (I have two boxes as I forgot to pack the 1st box when I went away so I bought another). My midwife said of course I can, she said that it would be fine continuing the folic acid etc 😊 don't worry x
I am on 5mg folic acid also, Vit D and fish oil. Doctor said to keep taking them all the way up and Im only to stop folic acid once my baby days are over. But I do have a mild form of Spina Bifida so that could be it also.
