Tablets to take

Can I stop taking Folic Acid after 12 weeks? As that is a crucial time, I have heard you should take it then, but after that I think it will not have any effect.

Also, is it safe to take ' fish tablets' , that is the essential omega oils? At the moment I am taking Salmon tablets by Vital, is that OK?

You should continue with the folic acid. it helps prevent preterm labour, abruptio,etc. The omega oils are fine.
