Folic acid yes, start as early as possible n take until week 12. For multivitamins are you referring to Obimin? Doc prescribed me Obimin during my first trimester check up but asked me to start only after week 12 (starting of second trimester) So there could be a reason. I have read on this app that some mommies had miscarriage when they took multivitamins in first trimester. Could be coincidence but better to be cautious than sorry. Each body is different so the best is get approval from your gynec before self medication. In my case I am additionally taking calcium supplements since the beginning and took Blackmore's pregnancy supplements in first trimester. Both after approval from gynec. Currently week 35 and I take Obimin, calcium, and fish oil

At 7 weeks, you only need folic acid. When you reach week 12, you will stop folic acid and start on multivitamin. I suggest you consult your gynae; that will be the safest approach. Take good care and God bless you and baby.,

Once you reach 12 weeks, gynae will ask you to stop Folic Acid and prescribe you with Obimin Multivitamins .. Obimin has Folid Acid (9mg) in it ..
