Yes, I have it. Luckily, even if your dr isn't on board, you can make up for it with OTC stuff (it's just more pills). You want 4mg (that's 4000mcg!) Folic Acid. Take note that Folic Acid is sold in mcg not mg. You also need to take a B6 and B12 vitamin. This is all in addition to the prenatal vitamin. Our bodies don't absorb these properly, that's why we need more. Also, baby aspirin can help prevent clots forming in the placenta. A clot in the placenta can cut off baby's food supply.
