We’ve had a similar situation: husband has spina bifida. For the first baby, I took high-dose folic acid and started trying immediately. I don’t think you need to wait 3 months for levels of FA to be right. For the second, I was pregnant before I started the high dose FA. Happily, both healthy boys. Neither of us were current smokers. Also I think that a lot of foods are fortified with FA. I’d just make sure you were taking a high dose and get on with it! Good luck.

The birth of a child is always magic and the only God knows what and how. It is advisable to quit smoking and drinking. The rest is only the recommendations of the doctors, not forgetting that there is always a happy miracle! You must believe in him.
