Hi all,
Am wondering if any of you could help me out with a question. I am a 37 year old, very healthy..and just found out I'm four weeks along. I've spent most of my adult years religiously taking multivitamins and supplements, and have been an athlete and focus very strongly on eating a very high quality diet. However, the past 3 months have been slightly different - in September, I decided to do a cleanse, which was quite successful and readusted my health considerably (had been dealing with a toxic work environment) and since coming off the cleanse, I never went back on my regular multivitamin regimen. Fast forward to now- I conceived on or about October 23-25, and while I ate fairly well, it still wasn't up to my usual standard, nor was there any multivitamin. Found out on Friday that I'm pregnant, and got on a prenatal asap, and am supplementing with additional folic acid and b-12. Am concerned about neural tube defects - do any of you have any experience with less than optimal pre-conception diet/vitamin intake and a healthy pregnancy? Just happy I discovered this when I did....and am on the folic acid bandwagon as of this past weekend.

Thankyou in advance!!!
