    Quote from the news article:

    "Research suggests up to 75% of cases could be prevented by the mother taking folic acid three months before conception, and during pregnancy."

    TFS - I've been taking mine since we started trying. But I'm a bit of a Kelloggs addict so I'm hoping that's enough FA to cover me off prior to then!

    OOh - I thought it was one month prior to conception, glad I saw this. Thanks!!

    I was so excited about ttc, that I started takiing folic acid supplements at the beginning of Aug, when ttc was originally planned for Jan lol -now we had decided to bring it forward til October -i'd better make sure thats the end of October, to make sure i've had 3 months.

    Thanks again
    Baby dust to all :dust::dust:

    On the subject of folic acid... I've been taking extra folic acid for around a month and a half. Before that I was getting B12 shots for a few months. The doctor told me that they had folic acid in them when I said that we were going to start trying.

    Do you think there is enough folic acid in B12 shots to satisfy the three months before conception?
