How much folic acid are you taking?

Hi mamas!! I’m pregnant with my first baby, due Dec 5th!! I was curious how much folic acid you all were told to be taking. My doctor told me 1000 mcg a day. I shouldn’t have done this, but I googled it because it seemed really high to me. Started reading some things that said pregnant women shouldn’t exceed more than 1000mcg a day, however certain foods contain it, such as leafy greens, beans, etc that I consume. What are your thoughts on this? Obviously I need to express my concerns with my OB but just thought I’d see what you all were taking too. This is my first time posting! Wishing everyone happy and healthy pregnancies!!
