Vitamins And Folic Acid

Hi, I was wondering if anyone else is taking folic acid and Vitamin B supplements. I will stop taking Folic acid at 12 weeks but want to continue taking Vit B for another few months, does anyone know of any concerns in continuing taking Vitamin B, or has anyone been recommended to take any other supplements.

why are you going to quit taking folic acid at 12 weeks, i have heard that folic acid is very essential to your babies development...i am just curious as to why this is the decision that you have made, or maybe you have differant info from you doc that you would like to share...however, i would consult your doc for sure before doing this if you havent already. good luck to you, and congrats on your pregnancy!

Will still be taking a prenatal? Any the folic acid is most crucial in early development. It's probably ok to not take the supplimentnst after the second trimester or now if you are still taking your prenatal.

The doctor advised that it is the first 12 weeks where the baby develops, then it just grows, I was only stopping taking the folic acid on doctors advice. also the vit B tablet i take still has 85% recommended daily allowance of folic acid so i will still be getting an intake
