Do you keep bags around to puke in?

How do women in a corporate environment, surrounded by men, who share an office FAR from any sinks or bathrooms deal with all-day morning sickness?

Disclaimer: for those of you that know me, I am not pregnant, nor do I plan to become pregnant in the near future. I'm just absurdly curious about this (wouldn't you be too?).
I work as a software developer in a building filled mostly with awkward unmarried men. The nearest bathroom to me is one football field away in the middle of the building. What do nauseous women in their first trimester do?
I picture myself having a sudden wave of morning sickness and needing to, idk, puke in the waste bin in my office? Next to my office mate? And then walk the full football field to the bathroom to ... wash it out? With toothbrush in hand?
It all seems like a bad sitcom.
Point out how naive I am. Would I have already gone to the dr. for anti-nausea meds if it were this bad? Would I be able to feel it coming and have time to high-tail it to the water closet? Is it really only in the morning? (Ok I know that last one is a lie, I'm not that naive)
