Thank you so much to everyone for all of the replies.

Two Flintstones have 600 mg. of Folic Acid in them. I took them again last night and got a lot of energy. Wonder if it's normal for vitamins to give you energy...?

Anyway, the reason I'm planning so much is because I know that I will be high risk (I'm disabled), so I'm trying to get everything right so that things will go as smoothly as possible. Not sure when I have to see the neonatal doctor, but...

I know that so many people just get pregnant without taking all these vitamins, and they're just fine. Thanks again to everyone! I look forward to being on here a lot.

I looked it up, Flintstones Vitamins have 600 mcg (micrograms, not milligrams), still within the desired amount for prenatal care.

Thanks, Lu-is. I always get bothered when people post wrong information, because a lot of people read forums, and don't post....so, thank you for posting the correct dose!

You can take Flinstones during pregnancy, but I think doctors usually recommend a prenatal. When I went in for my pre-pregnancy appointment my doctor said it didn't matter whether it was over the counter or prescription. I've only heard of Flinstones being used when a woman has bad reactions to prenatals.

Vitamins don't in and of themselves give you energy, but they are required for your body to get energy out of the sugars your body uses and needed for all sorts of required processes that go on in your body, so you might feel more energetic after taking them if you don't usually get enough vitamins!

You don't absolutely have to take folic acid for 3 months before trying to conceive. It's recommended because the thought is that you don't necessarily know when you will fall pregnant and so you might as well get started. It's fine to start once you are on it, as far as I know.
