just a quick question. I am 13 weeks today and not sure whether to keep taking folic acid.I was with my doctor during the week for my first scan and she never said anything about it and I forgot to ask. So did everyone who was taking them, keep taking them or stop after 12/13 weeks?
Afaik its recommended that you take it in the months prior to conceiving and then up until at least week 14. I'm still taking it after week 14 though. If I was you I'd continue on for another few weeks anyway.
I stopped taking it at 14 weeks after checking with a midwife at booking appointment!
It's recommended for before getting pregnant and up to week 12 of pregnancy while the spine is developing.
my doc said to take til week 14
I was told there would be no harm taking it continuously. Mine is now included in a pregnancy multivitamin.
I stopped taking it at 14 weeks
