Folic acid in pregnancy linked to asthma
yikes! research in Australia has had some scary findings.... but other websites i googled did not mention the link btwn asthma and folic acid.
I took obimin till full term....I think it has a bit of folic acid...but so far my son is ok
i think should be okay, dont think got link.. cos even FM also contain folid acid =)
I think should be fine , i in my 39 weeks took them ever since my 6th week
i think it's fine.. if your gynae ask you to take then just take ... i dont think gynae will hai your baby ... my gynae ask mi eat what i just follow never ask too much also... anyway is good for baby ...
folic acid is a supplement and aids in development. you are encouraged to take till labour and even wen breastfeeding.
i was given folic acid from before pregnant. then wen at 5 mths preg, dr gave obimin. i ask if i shud stop folic, he said just continue with folic. after deliver, he sae can still continue coz good for bf. now i still continune coz i never knoe wen i can get preggie again. folic refuces chance of neural tube deformities
i dont know if taking too much folic acid will lead to asthma but dr adrian tan said that excessive folic acid is no good! he said everything should be in moderate dosage even though most of it can be passed out in urine.
taking it all the way to term is fine but why want to take "too much" of it?
i also dont think folic acid will cause asthma..
but my gynae also gave the same advice as pineappletarts' gynae.. she also told me to stop folic acid when i was in 2nd tri. but becos i hav plenty of it, i just continue until end of 2nd tri iirc..
and fyi, baby FM also contains folid acid, the multivit and milk we took during preg also contains folid acid.. =)
