Pregnancy: Every pregnancy can be different. The changes in hormones is thought to be the cause of hyperemesis gravida. Other then anti nausea meds and sometimes IV fluids there is not a cure. Small frequent meals and/or having something in your stomach even a few crackers can help. Unfortunately some women have severe cases that are difficult to manage. Hope you feel better!
