Indigestion/Anxiety: Processes not needed for emergency such as digestion and sexual response are temporarily interfered w/during high anxiety. Thus there is a link between the two. Please continue to see your doc but include a clinical psychologist in your treatment team to treat the root, not only the symptoms. See www.relaxationresponse.org for some self-help also. Peace and good health.

Lots!: Prenatal vitamins can commonly cause or worsen nausea/vomiting due to their size as well as their components. Some women find relief if they take the vitamin with a meal or at night. Also consider talking to your provider about a smaller sized prenatal vitamin or a chewable prenatal vitamin.
