    Default not sure to start on folate tablets

    Hi all, first post so i hope it is in the right location.

    I'm currently at 10 wks, having found out just recently that I am pregnant for the first time.

    everything i read states i should take extra tablets for folic acid or extra vitamins for the first 3 months. Is there a point if I'm a couple of weeks away from the 2nd trimester?

    Yup! Have you seen a dr yet? It's never too late. A bottle of mega fol is cheap as too.

    thanks for the input, I've only seen a local GP and had the blood test done. when getting the results for that, I checked again about tablets but was told as long as my diet was healthy (which is is, heaps of veggies and fruit) i should be fine with out extras.
