    I missed a few because of ms. I wouldnt worry about it too much. As long as your making the effort and taking them as often as you can

    In the last 6 wks i think i have missed 2, just from forgetfulness.
    As long as you are taking them as often as you can, its ok.

    I missed lastnight :( That is only one day. When i was pregnant with my girls I missed a few nights. I feel guilty but nothing bad happens. I didn't take my prenatals durring the 4 weeks I didn' know I was pregnant though because we werent trying for a baby.

    I never planned any of my pregnancies so was not on folic acid til I found out - so dont worry my elder two were perfect.

    Same this time round too!

    I have missed 2 days in a row now as i take them before bed, so have moved them outta the kitchen and put them on my headboard so i cant forget.

    I try not to worry too much as i eat a good balanced diet with lots of fruit n veggies

    if you have cereal for breakfast then you'll be getting enough folic acid. It's in quite a few foods i think... don't beat yourself up if you forget to take it. I forgot yesterday so took it first thing this morning and will take another before i go to bed then normal tomorrow lunch time.

    That sounds like a bad idea to me. Your taking 2 doses when the maximum we need is the one dose. Surely taking too would mean youd be overdosing ? Not sure if any affects come from it, but i would just take one today

    Ive missed loads because i just couldnt swallow the HUGE tablet!! :sick:

    I felt guilty, but lots of people dont even take them at all so im now happy that taking them when i can face them is the best i can do. Theres no point in making myself sick by forcing them down. :blush:

    I miss them a lot because I do not have ms but they are one thing that will make me feel sick. I do take the folic acid though.

    Folic acid tablets are tiny, its the prenatal vitamins that tend to be quite big.
