    i have heard not to.. just folic acid and omega 3. If you eat a balanced diet you should be getting all the vitamins you need.
    Some experts say that too much of certain vitimins can cause defects so they say steer clear and just eat well. x

    if you want to take some vitamins hun i highly recommend the Pregnacare that i take, its got everything in it that pregnant women and growing babies need, and as its developed specifically for pregnant women all through pregnancy you know its good for you and bubs! You can buy it pretty much everywhere too hun, so its handy to grab a pack when your doing your shopping, thats what i do xxx

    I think you were ok to stop the extra folic acid at week 12 - it will have served its purpose to prevent any neural tube problems.

    I am taking a generic brand multivitamin - there was a sugary taste to the brand named one that made me gag...
