Pregnancy can be a wonderful time in a woman's life. Unfortunately, though, the experience isn't all magic and rainbows. Sometimes it can be quite difficult, especially if the expectant mother develops hyperemesis gravidarum. This temporary but incurable condition takes morning sickness to a new level of awful, preventing women from maintaining a normal existence during pregnancy, and even landing them in the hospital.
Unlike morning sickness, women with hyperemesis gravidarum experience near-constant vomiting. It can lead to severe weight loss and electrolyte disturbance, with more severe cases calling for a stay in the hospital.
