I would take her to the vet. It may be a normal thing but frequently throwing up can lead to dehydration which could be harmful to cat and kittens!

If your cat is 4-5 weeks pregnant then this is probably just morning sickness which some cats suffer for a week or two during this stage of pregnancy. A change in her normal food can also cause vomiting. If your cat is near to full term (approximately 63 days) then you need to take her to the vet. Vomiting is sometimes the first sign of labor but this stage should not last longer than 24 hours. Continual vomiting could be a sign of dystocia (birthing problems) where cat is trying to give birth but the kitten is stuck in the birth canal. It could also be a sign of an infection which only the vet can treat.

She's probably going through morning sickness. Depends on how long really...? She won't want to eat either. But you definitely need to make sure she gets the nutrition she needs. Consult your vet for best options.

Morning sickness perhaps? It is normal for pregnant cats to vomit. Just keep an eye on her. It should last for a period of days.

I suggest asking your vet because it's best to be safe, and be watching what she's eating but it's not unheard of for sure!
