I'm just past 14 weeks and have been taking the pregnacare tablets for pregnant women to make sure I'm getting enough folic acid. I know this is essential for the first 3 months but is it okay to keep taking it; should I take it; is it harmful to take too much now?

Folic acid is most important in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. After this, providing your diet is varied and you are not deficient in it, there is no need for folic acid supplements. It is unlikely that you could overdose on it though!
