i have Crohn's disease been under control for 3 years with infliximab however I didn't start taking folic acid til week 6 of pregnancy and forgot to take it many times now I'm really scared of my baby having spina bifida would this have been seen through blood tests or scan already? I'm so scared of going to 20 week scan and there being something wrong I read about people having to terminate their baby at that time because of this :(

No advice regarding spinal bifida but I think you should speak to your midwife about your anxiety.
They should be able to help you put your mind at rest until your 20 week scan.
Try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy as much as possible.
