Hello dear,
I understand your concern.
Iam sorry for your condition.

In my opinion the vomitings are routinely seen in first trimester of pregnancy ie.,first 12 weeks.This is called morning sickness.
But this can be controlled by medicines like antiemetics like doxylamine, metochlorpromide,ondansetron etc.
If they are not controlled by medicines and general condition is deteriorated it is called hyperemesis gravidarum.
But do not worry.Mostly they will subside by 12 weeks and rarely till 20 weeks.
But till then try to take antiemetics and take food in small quantities every 2 hourly.
Take adequate fluids upto 3 litres per day along with fruit juices.
Relax.
Hope this helps.
Best regards...Dr .Srilatha
