Ideally, folic acid is to be taken as the pregnancy is diagnosed or even before preparing for a pregnancy. You can still start it in the third month.

Folinext D has folic acid and DHA, both are essential for the growing fetus and the mother. You can continue to take it.

Do not be scared.

Hope I have answered your query.
