Hi im 19weeks pregnant and i have stopped consuming the folic acid after my 1st trimester.. should i continue or just stop totally?
check with your gynae, but usually the multi vitamin gynae give already contains folic acid
Doctor will advise you to stop after 1st trimester and replace with other supplements.
Stopped folic acid after first trimester and started on Blackmores Pregnancy Advanced
You can stop if your doctor has given you obimin as obimin also contains folic.
With my gynae, she recommend folic acid for the 1st trimester only.
I stop as per gynae advice. As multi vit has folic acid content.
Continue. And u should also take calcium & iron pills :)
2nd trimester will consume calcium, obimin and fish oil.
Some gynae will said, u only folic acid, nothing else.
Im taking it until today (hitting 36weeks next week!)
