hi.welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
Folic acid should be started in the pre conception time & continued for 3-4 months after that,as it prevents neurological defects/malformation in the newborn. For lower abdomen pain get ultrasound done to confirm viable intrauterine pregnancy.& also consult gynecologist.
wish you beautiful ,healthy out come of pregnancy.
