Hello, I understand your feeling. And I need to explain regarding the folic acid for your knowledge. If there s any folic acid deficiency there would be congenital anomalies of babies In order to avoid that doctors give mothers folic acid. And yes the dose you are taking is adequate for all trimesters Thank you
