You should stop the folic acid and take Materna. I took the folic acid up until I got pregnant, then once I found out I was pregnant I switched to the Materna, this has all the vitamin's you need as well as folic acid. I am not 13 weeks pregnant and will continue taking until after delivery. Good Luck!

Yes, I took folic acid before getting pregnant too, but once I tested positive I switched over to a prenatal vitamin.. I bought one at Walmart called One Source prenatal.. It has all the folic acid you need plus all the other vitamins & minerals the developing baby needs. My doctor siad that that vitamin was fine to use & never even prescribed me anything else, just said to keep taking that...

Once I found out I was pregnant my DR. put me on 1mg Folic Acid tablets, plus prenatals with a fatty acid and 1200 mg of calcium a day. I figured it was because of my age because I will be thirty this year, because with my son I just took prenatals but that was 5 years ago.
