In brief: Whatever works

We usually start with oral medications.
If this doesn't work we move on to rectal suppositories, or dissolving tablets, or IV meds if needed. Difficult cases usually do well with zofran (ondansetron) or end up getting admitted for IV fluids, rest, & medications. Make sure you check with your doc to find what works best for you.

In brief: Whatever works

Unrelenting nausea and vomiting during pregnancy is most common around 10 to 14 weeks gestation.
When necessary, it usually responds to IV hydration and antiemetic medications. Keeping yourself well hydrated will help, which can be difficult with persistent nausea and vomiting - keeping the nausea undr control with oral medications is important - as dehydration worsens so does the hyperemesis.
