Our expert says:
Mood swings can occur in pregnancy ( within limits of severity ) in any woman, as the hormonal changes of pregnancy are not helpful to mood stability. But this can be more troublesome if one is Bipolar and already have difficulties with mood stability. What you're describing, with changes within minutes, is less like typical bipolar disorder than the lability of ordinary pregnancy. The hyperemesis is horriblwe to experience, and of course the fall-out on your husband can be unpleasant.
Assessing the exact nature of the mood swings, assessing what risk if any the mood swings may pose, and what medication, if any, might help and on the whole be safer for the child, is a complex issue and one for which there is no pat or sock answer. What you need is a detailed in-person assessment from a good local psychiatrist, who could then answer your wise and pettinent questions more usefully.
