    Default Not taking enough folic acid-worried!

    So I'm 6w1d and just found out that i misread new prenatal vitamins I've been taking for over a week. I was meant to be taking 2 not 1.
    This is my third baby so i dont know why i am so worried about it but i am. Do you think it will still be okay that i only had 250ug folic acid a day for a week.

    I am honestly such a cruisey person, but this has me worried!

    Anecdotally, I didn't start taking folic acid with any of mine until after I found out I was pregnant and mine were all okay.

    At a guess, unless you have a family history of neural tube defects it should be okay. If you have any ongoing concerns, I would suggest you discuss them with your doctor.
