Vomiting During Pregnancy Symptoms
Morning sickness: Some women experience nausea and vomiting only in the morning. The majority of women have nausea on and off, all day long.
Hyperemesis gravidarum: This condition occurs when a pregnant woman has ongoing vomiting that results in weight loss greater than 5% of her body weight, and evidence of dehydration. Hyperemesis gravidarum is an extreme form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy that sometimes requires hospitalization. It is different from, and much worse than morning sickness.
