First and foremost be calm call your obstetrician and explain any feelings of pain or discomfort you were having. Also, it wouldn't hurt to write down everything you have eaten the past 24 hours. I hope you and your unborn child are ok.

When you vomit green bile, it means you are suffering from intestinal obstruction. This is caused by twisted intestines, a condition considered as medical emergency. The main symptom of this condition is severe pains in the abdomen.

It could mean you have a serious or moderate stomach infection. This usually requires medication, which can alleviate the pain and restore proper functionality. Green bile can be associated with several things, including acid indigestion, fever and cold sickness, or simply phlegm or improper food regurgitation. The best thing is to visit the emergency room or your primary care physician ASAP.

Once your stomach is completely empty, if you continue to vomit, you will only have stomach secretions and bile left to bring up. Stay calm and call your doctor. This is very common and is not necessarily any cause for alarm. You need to watch out for dehydration so call your doctor so they can instruct you and ask you the appropriate question to determine whether or not there is any cause for concern. Take care.
