In brief: Folic acid is good

When you are trying for a baby, you need nutritious foods such as fruits and vegetables while avoiding unhealthy "junk" foods.
Taking a pre-natal vitamin is a good idea. A pre-natal vitamin is formulated for pregnancy so it will have the right dose of folic acid, calcium, Iron, Omega-3 and other vitamins. Unless advised, avoid single vitamins. High doses of some vitamins can hurt the baby.
