Hey Molly,
It's totally fine to take folic acid now too. I only say this as I take the sanatogen pregnancy vitamins and they have folic acid in them and you can take them the whole way through. The only one I know you're not supposed to take a lot of is Vitamin A.
Hope that helps,

It does get confusing sometimes! I always check with the pharmacist before I take anything just in case. I thought I was doing well staying away from the wrong foods and as I don't drink tea or coffee I tohught I was doing well with no caffeine. Then the other day I read that you shouldn't eat too much chocolate because of the caffeine content......the one thing I crave most of the time!!! Very Happy I think if you believed everything you read then we would end up starving and not leaving the house!! xxxx
