    That's totally fine. You aren't the first and definitely won't be the last Our daughter is almost 6 months now and perfectly healthy. I think taking a really good multivit helped a lot with my anxiety as I knew I was doing the best for my bub. Good luck to you. You've got some very exciting times ahead x

    I use it as I have mthfr and cannot process folic acid but need folonic acid which is in these. I also like that they are 1 per day.

    How do you find out if you have it? Should I be requesting a blood test? Never heard of it and curious to know what it means.

    They normally only test for it if you've had recurrent miscarriage or are diagnosed with 'unexplained infertility' I had it done during my ivf cycles. I'm not sure if it is something that a GP would test for ... more likely a fertility specialist. It's just a series of blood tests.
