In brief: 1-2 %

Most pregnant women will experience nausea.
Many will also have vomitting. Hyperemesis gravidarum (hg) is a severe form that affects 1-2% characterized by unrelenting nausea, vomitting and the inability to take in enough calories and nutrition. There is a wide spectrum in how patients perceive and experience these symptoms and the term hg is often used loosely.
