Pregnant after a Loss

How long does it take to digest vitamins?

Let's say you eat food A and take your vitamins at the same time. 2 hours later, food A comes back up (you can visually tell). 

Di you retake the vitamins, or did enough get digested/absorbed in 2 hours?

What is the timeframe cut off for retaking vitamins?

  • I never retake.  I figure the risk of too much vitamins (which will make you feel even more nauseas) is worse than the risk of too little for one day.

  • I definitely wouldn't retake after 2 hours. I accidentally took mine one morning on an empty stomach (maybe just water and juice) and I felt sick fairly quickly and saw no evidence of any vitamins in the toilet.

    This.

    My OB also told me that the most important time to take prenatals is for the 3 months before you get pregnant, and after about 6 weeks they become less important. He gave me permission to stop taking them in first tri when they were making me sick all the time. (I bought gummy ones instead, but wasn't very good about taking them). Now I can actually take them again. (Although one did come back up around 15 weeks).
