    I'm taking the pregnacare ones and they say that they are suitable to take all the way thru but I'm not sure whether to keep going with them or not. I guess extra vits etc can't really hurt!

    i think thats what they used to say cos the baby does all of its forming and prevents spina bifada (SP?)

    So other than taking more folic - hows things going with you?? :)
