Pregnancy, Vomiting

Vomiting During Pregnancy Overview

While you are pregnant, nausea and vomiting are common. A majority of women get mild to moderate symptoms during the first three months (first trimester) of pregnancy. These symptoms are usually gone by the fourth month.

Although this condition is often called morning sickness, most women have symptoms throughout the day.

Very rarely, a pregnant woman may experience a more serious condition involving severe vomiting, dehydration, and weight loss. This is called hyperemesis gravidarum.
