In brief: Don't stop!
You should continue taking the Folic Acid pills and prenatal pills throughout the pregnancy.
Even after. Especially if you plan on breast feeding.

You need the Folic acid even when not pregnant.

In brief: When Prenatals start
There is Folic Acid in prenatal vitamins so when you start those you can stop taking the folic acid.
Best of luck!
