You should be taking folate supplements as well as multivitamins.
Two visits before 12 weeks is fine but, at these visits, you should have had a scan to confirm the fetal heart is present. Also you may wish to have screening for Down syndrome. A screening test (special scan) can be done at 13 weeks which will give you your risk for this, or you could have an amniocentesis at 16 weeks which will give you a definite result. You should discuss these with your doctor.
