    I have always been told and learned to take prenatals including folic through the whole pregnancy.

    I'm still taking my pre-nats (which have folic acid) and will continue to do so... it can't hurt! And my OB hasn't said it's OK to stop...

    I've heard conflicting info.. as I do believe the first tri is THE most important to take your Folic Acid... but might help later on too???
