I've heard that the condition she has is often indicative of twins or a girl. Who knows how true that is, but either way I hope everything turns out alright. I guess this form of sickness is pretty uncomfortable and can really dehydrate you, as you can't keep any food or even water down.
It's more than "pretty uncomfortable." Hyperemesis gravidarum can lead to dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, and if not controlled, GI bleeding, malnutrition, & in severe cases neurological damage.
