yes, I'm glad your numbers are rising too JM, and that you're getting to have that quietly confident happiness to enjoy this special time. I hope it's the most boring pregnancy ever for you
Hi ladies ive been reading that we should be having a max dose of folic acid per day of 1000mcg. Or 1mg. My question is if i take everything im supposed to id be on about 6000 mcg or 6mg a day so 6x the max safe dose.... is this safe? Obviously im including megafol, multi vitamin. Inofolic. In this calculation. Dont want od myself lol
•Women who are overweight
•Women who have had a child with spina bifida, or who have a relative with spinal bifida
•Certain racial groups including Sikhs and women from some European countries such as Wales
•Women who take anti-epileptic drugs
I would've been on prob the same amount as you will be when I was Cycling with Wazza/got my BFP with no probs. I've read of other FS adding 5mg's of folic acid a day to their protocols also so can't imagine 6 mg's is going to make a negative impact😊
