Health Tip: If You Have Severe Morning Sickness
-- Morning sickness is an unpleasant, yet common side effect of pregnancy. When episodes of nausea and vomiting become severe, it's time to call the doctor.

- Having nausea that is so persistent that you cannot eat or drink anything.
- Vomiting to the point where food doesn't stay in the stomach.
- Vomiting blood.
- Fainting, feeling dizzy or losing weight.
- Urinating less frequently and having frequent headaches.
- Having a rapid heartbeat.
- Feeling extremely confused or fatigued.
- Noticing a bad, fruity odor to the breath or body.
