    Congrats on your pregnancy.its never too early to start antenatal care.The earlier the better it is.You can however start tab folic acid one daily and tab ferrous one twice a day.Register for antenatal as soon as possible.

    Thank you. How about calcium tabs, I was given from the Hosp in my previous pregnancy. Do I still need it?

    calcium tab isnt a routine drug in antenatal care.unless it was confirmed that your calcium level is low,you do not need calcium supplement.
