  • also, foods like strawberries are high in folic acid. also any GM cereals are recommended to woman in child-bearing years becauce they all have added folic acid.

  • I think it can be bad i would reccomend putting your prenatals by your toothbrush as a reminder or something like that or write in lipstick on ur bathroom mirror take prenatals then put an x on the calendar when you do i had the same problem pregnant brains suck lol

  • I wouldn't double take it, if you are unsure it's probably best that you don't take it. I always take mine right after I eat supper.

  • NEVER EVER double up on meds or vitamins of any kind. Just wait until your next dose and take the one dose only. Forgetting once in a while is fine doubling up is not.
