My OB office told me I don't need to take anything additional to a regular prenatal vitamin. I am now 9 weeks pregnant with twins...I'm worried because I've only had 600 mcg of folate from my New Chapter vitamins. I also take an omega everyday.
I did take prenatals the whole month before conceiving. I'm really freaking out that my twins haven't gotten enough folate...
My IVF doctor prescribed extra folic acid because I was having twins. Check out Dr. Barbara Luke's book "When you are expecting twins, triplets, or quads" and it has a whole list of the extra vitamins and such you will want to add to your life.

You're fine, since most women with decent diets get the proper amount of folate. The folate recommendations are primarily for those who eat a very imbalanced or malnourished diet. And pre-conception folate is more important (or at least as important) as prenatal folate, so since you were taking it beforehand, I really think you're more than fine.
