OBGYN 's  Response
it seems to be a case of hyperemesis gravidarum(severe vomiting of pregnancy) further complicated with severe gastrites. the mainstay of therapy is fluid management , with each episode of vomtiing there is a lot of fluid and electrolyte loss from the body and hence that has to be managed well. and simultaneously oral or injecatble antacids should be considered
