OMG This happened to me. Would you believe that my pharmacy didn't correctly fill the RX and for 80% of my pregnancy, I didn't take the DHA pills.

I was in a panic, but my OB felt that it was ultimately OK. And, everything was. {Hugs to you}

I am sure its fine. I couldn't even keep anything down with Sara the whole pregnancy. Which meant prenatals didn't stay down either!

Also, many foods like cereals have folic acid added and lots of other foods have it naturally, so you're probably getting at least some in your diet - check your labels and see.

I wouldn't freak out - it's most important to take it in the earliest stages of pregnancy. Here's what I found at WebMD:

When Should I Start Taking Folic Acid?
Because many pregnancies aren't planned, it's important for every woman of childbearing age to take folic acid, even if they aren't trying to conceive. Birth defects occur within the first three to four weeks of pregnancy, so it's important to have folic acid in your system during those early stages when your baby's brain and spinal cord are developing.
