In brief: Ask your Ob

The main thing is to eat "god made" food and avoid the "man made" stuff.
Your OB should provide you with the necessary vitamins.

In brief: Vitamins & pregnancy

1 mg of Folic Acid is enough (best if started before the pregnancy).
" the appropriate dose of vitamin d during pregnancy and lactation is unknown, although it appears to be greater than the current dietary reference intake of 200–400 iu/d " [http://www.Ajcn.Org/content/79/5/717.Full]. 800 - 1000 iu should be considered the maximum daily dose.
