"Refresh" item in SharePoint list before triggering action

I have a flow creating an item in a SharePoint list B after an item is created and updated in a SharePoint list A. In SharePoint list A I have a calculated column, using output from Flow update. Problem is that the the create action is triggered before the item is refreshed/calculated in SharePoint list, i.e. the content in the calculated column is not included in flow. Building a second flow updating item in SharePoint list B with this information is obviously not an option, as the unique identifier is the calculated column.. Any ideas on how to "refresh" item or SharePoint list?

@mrhooki before the item is created in List B you could add a delay control of perhaps 30 seconds so that the actions in List A complete before it needs to create the List B item.
