Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy

What you are experiencing is most likely related to your pregnancy. However, if your vomiting is persistent and severe, you may have a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum.

There is no strict definition that separates severe "morning sickness" from hyperemesis. If you have lost 5 percent of your body weight due to nausea and vomiting, then you have hyperemesis.

Do you have severe and persistent nausea and vomiting and/or have you lost 5 percent or more of your body weight?
