Worried about my prenatal vitamins

My first OB appointment is next week. This is my first pregnancy and I wish they would have seen me sooner. I have been taking the Rainbow Light Prenatal One vitamin along with the DHA 250 Smart Essentials pill. In doing some research I have read that too much vitamin E is bad and can cause heart defects. Between the 2 pills there are around 40mg of vitamin E. This is above what all guidelines says is good for pregnant women. Do I stop taking them? Have I really screwed things up? Sorry, I freak out about everything now and this has me really worried.

I would trade out the DHA 250 Smart Essentials 

for a no-odor/low odor Omega 3/6 supplement (fish oil), I use the one from Trader Joe's. I use I *highly* doubt your dose is anywhere near significant enough to have made any negative impact whatsoever, but now that you know why worry about it? 

Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin (A/D/E/K), and I believe this means it accumulates more than the water soluble ones (B/C...and so on). My understanding is that over time you can accumulate fat soluble vitamins at unsafe levels if you take even slightly higher doses, if that's true then 1) I highly doubt you've taken it long enough for a negative impact and 2) stop. :-) 

Also, there is extra folic acid in the DHA 250, that's another vitamin you should only take at recommended levels.

Probably fine. 
the amount that's recommended to take is generally WAY below the level that could cause a problem - like 100 or 1000 times. 
Definitely ask about it at your appointment. 

Vitamin E is good for skin = less stretch marks! 

You're well on your way to being a great parent - you obviously want the best for your child and are taking ALL the measures you can to give them that.
