Excessive vomiting (hyperemesis gravidarum)

The excess of vomiting during pregnancy, unlike habitual morning nauseas, is the extremely serious vomit presence that causes dehydration and starvation.

The cause of vomiting is not known, but psychological factors can influence much. Be careful because dehydration can bring about a haemorrhage in the retina of the eyes, dangerous alterations in the blood or injuries to the liver.

If your vomits are persistent, you must be hospitalized. Glucose or vitamin liquids will be administered to you via intravenous route. These will prevent you to eat and drink for at least 24 hours. If you need them, they will provide you drugs against nauseas and sedatives. Once the dehydration is surpassed, it is possible to begin eating little by little.
