Morning Monnie - I can't remember how much I take as I bought it from Boots and it was a combined Folic Acid and Vit D combo, which is probably the recommended dosage. Hopefully someone will be along to confirm, I can check later when I get home from work :)

There's 10 micrograms in pregnacare and it says that is 200% of the rda. Not sure if that helps?

perfect thank you iv got a box of the vitabiotics Vit D and they are 25micrograms so i guess it should be alright ?
my consultant told me not to keep taking my pregnacare becasue i got put on a higher dose of folic acid,

Just checked Boots online and my combo is 10mcg. I'm surprised I wasn't asked to take a higher dose of Folic Acid because of my BMI and I asked the midwife outright but she didn't say I needed more.

I wouldn't Mon, 25mcg is nearly 3 times what the NHS site recommends. My vitamin d was dirt cheap from Holland and Barrett. Literally just a couple of pounds x

im just thinking i already have to take bigger doses becasue of my BMI,
maybe ill call my consultants office and run it past them ?
