Posted by: Esthia | 2011/12/07

pregnancy

I am 12 weeks pregnant and bought a heart moitor for the baby but I cannot pick up the heart beat , I am also overweight might this be why I cannot hear it as I went for a check up at week 10 and everything was fine.
Also what is the purpose of folic acid ?

Probably being overweight is part of it. Also it is quite early to hear the heartbeat with a monitor. Folic acid helps prevent spina bifida in the baby.
