    And also Atomic have read the other respond about your son born with neural defect, so my other question is, is 500mcg enough if am carrying twins or I can add one more tablet?

    The reason I recommend more for blue swayers is because tea, particularly green tea, and some of the supplements that other sites recommend, are really bad for folic acid absorption. Like I mentioned above, my 3rd has a neural tube defect and when I conceived him I was taking 800 mcg and eating super healthy, but drinking ONE green tea a day and also some black tea. So I know firsthand 800 may not be enough and since IG also agrees that blue swayers need more than the standard, I used their recommendations of 2000 mcg for blue swayers and then came up with my own of 1200-1600 for pink swayers. Under normal circumstances I want you guys to take the higer dose through the entire first trimester and then and only then, gradually wean off. NEVER EVER stop folic acid cold turkey or even drop down in dose suddenly. This has always been my recommendation since day one of this site after seeing several blue swayers undergo sudden and mysterious miscarriages for no reason after suddenly dropping the 2000 mcg folic acid that IG recommends.

    In your case, 3, you're already off it. Is it my preference the way you did it, no, but it's done now, and there's no point in going back on the higher dose only to have to come off it again in a few weeks' time.
    Thanks for coming back to me atomic. Iíll stick on the dose I am on then. Should I be concerned though?? I feel a bit worried about what u said - should I be? Obviously no miscarriage so far (although I know Iím not out of the woods as only 8 weeks) but I do worry about spinal issues as we have some family history on DH side. I just presumed taking the NHS recommended 400 dose that I did though my other pregnancies would be ok for that. I didnít think to check I didnít drink any green tea in my sway. I didnít actually take too many funky supplements either - just fish oil, mulitivit, probiotic, Vit D and COq10 (plus the folic acid) xx

    There's no sense in worrying about it now. Tons of people drop it suddenly and have no ill effects, but I"m not trying to give you guys the "good enough" option, I want to prevent as many losses as I can (as I'm sure you can understand). My thinking is, it's already done, you're off it, stay off it rather than having to take the chance coming off it again a second time.

    But there is already some in the pregnancy supplement you're taking, right??

    I'd prob. just take that and then add in one more folic acid pill in that case.

    Thanks for responding this Atomic, the other supps have omega 3,calcium, magnesium, folic acid yes and the label reads that there's essential vitamins also.

    OK so am adding another one more pill to make it 1000mcg,thank you a lot
