Hi, Its good that Ultrasound and everything is normal .Folic acid is not a medication is a supplementation for the good health of baby. Folic acid will protect baby from the neural tube defects .
Duphastone is progestrone needed for fetus . Its normally secreted but some doctors empericall prescribe this to avoid abortion.I do not suggest to take this as every thing is normal. But continue your folic acid daily ,diet lot of fresh fruits and seasonal green leafy vegetables , proper restas well as freguent small meals.
