In brief: No

While nausea and vomiting early in pregnancy are very common, for most women these symptoms are relatively mild and tend to resolve by about 12 weeks.
"severe" vomiting may represent hyperemesis gravidarum, which can result in dehydration and necessitate hospitalization in some cases. You should contact your doctor if you have continuing or severe vomiting.
