In brief: Bad enough!

It can get bad enough to require hospitalization and IV fluids.

In brief: Hyperemesis

Morning sickness is the reaction your body has to Hcg (pregnancy hormone).
You can start getting nauseous at 4 wks, w/ peak symptoms at 6wks, usually stopping by mid-2nd trimester. The worst form of this is hyperemesis where you vomit so much that you lose weight and get dehydrated. See a doctor is this is a problem.
