In brief: Dehydration

Severe vomiting in pregnancy is known in its' extreme as hyperemesis gravidarum.
Dehydration is one of the symptoms and requires either fluid ingestion or IV fluid replacement. Your OB doctor needs to check labwork that includes electrolytes( potassium, sodium, chloride, etc.) to assess the need for the above interventions.

In brief: Painful Bladder

In brief: Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual function can be impaired at the desire or arousal phase.
Vaginal lubrication and receptivity can be impaired due to lack of foreplay or hormonal imbalance. Finally, orgasmic dysfunction or even painful orgasm may be the result of neurologic damage. Proper physical and psychological evaluation is essential to determine the origin and treatment of this common condition.

In brief: Pregnant Nausea

Digestion is very slow in pregnancy.
Gastric reflux is common. Late meals, cured meats, saucy dishes and fried food are bad actors. Modern acid pump inhibitors like pepsid and Prevacid (lansoprazole) are lifesavers when taken regularly. Frequent, small meals are helpful too . It's high time we abandon the notion that nausea or heartburn are "normal" part of pregnancy.
