  • Why are you taking extra iron? Are you anemic? You definitely don't sound dehydrated, but throwing up and diarrhea will lead to dehydration. If you are sick with a flu bug, your body may not want you eating (hence throwing up) so that it can focus on killing the virus. Try drinking chicken broth (for protein) and keep taking your vitamins. You could also try a protein shake mixed with water - but you will know what your stomach can handle right now. Eat easily digestible foods.

  • Get rest and drink lots of fluids. If it doesn't get better in a day or 2 then see you doc. I had this happen around the same time. It could either be a bug or sometimes your hormones can just mess you up.

  • Like sbastille worte drink fluids and broth and get your OBGYN though and let them know what is going on with you. They may have you come in to see if you are getting dehydrated or not. GL
