That's very strange, I've never heard that! I don't think there's any reason you have to stop taking them after 12 weeks. In fact the pregnancy multivitamin I'm taking - Sanatogen Pronatal - contains the RDA of folic acid and you can take these throughout your pregnancy and even afterwards during breastfeeding! I took these throughout my last pregnancy and even before I got pregnant and Logie's fine! I always thought that it was essential you take them before 12 weeks or it would be detrimental to the unborn baby and after 12 weeks wasn't as important but still good to take them. xo
