    Good morning madam.A lot of questions. yes you can travel anyway you want. doesn't affect your pregnancy. Folic acid is excellent for your growing baby.it prevents abnormal formation of his/her spine. yes some women experience frequent urination just like my wife because of increased blood flow to the kidneys. its not one of the commoner symptoms though.ahowever if it's of any more concern to you, you can run a simple urinalysis and mcs especially if you notice any pain while urinating. If. your period started on the 3rd then you are about 3 week and 5days.very likely the pregnacare contains folic acid already so there may be no need to continue the folic acid itself.hiwever you can take up to 5mg of folic acid in pregnancy more than the routine 400mcg.
