Brief Answer:
Diagnosis should be confirmed

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.Such a situation can occur in twins, multiple pregnancy, or h mole, in which the appearance of pregnancy is more than the gestational age and excessive nausea and vomiting are there.
I will suggest her to consult an OBGYN specialist for proper examination, ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis and get further treatment accordingly.
She can take pyridoxine or doxinate in the meantime for relief from nausea and vomiting.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Regards
Dr Deepti Verma
