You should be okay to go to your GP now, but if you have a container, I'd bring first morning urine with you, just to be sure!!! Pregnacare has enough folic acid in it, has the same amount as clonfolic. I don't know about the other suppliment you are taking, but if there's Vitamin A in it you should stop taking it, as you shouldn't take extra Vitamin A during pregnancy!

Hiya Lunasa, i'm pretty new to this baby lark stuff and we're tcc at the mo, first off congratulations on your BFP :o)ll :o)ll i myself would go the doc asap even if it's just for a chat and to get some advice. Folic acid should still be taken up til 12 wks pregnant not sure about the the other q's HTH :wv :wv

Congrats!! :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll As the other's have said, go to the doctor to put your mind at ease. I think I was 7 weeks when I went so it's up to you. I would stop taking all other vitimans, bar the folic acid. Doctor told me preg women should only take vitimans specifically for preg women! I've taken pregnancare (with added omega) all throught my pregnancy, but that's just to ensure that I'm getting all the vitimans I need - my diet isn't always that varied!
