Amy Schumer was hospitalized Thursday due to pregnancy complications. “I am in the hospital. I’m fine. Baby’s fine,” the I Feel Pretty star shared on Instagram. “But everyone who says the 2nd trimester is better is not telling the full story.”
Schumer is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum which causes intense nausea. “I have hyperemesis and it blows,” she continued. “Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bullshit! Sending so much love to the doctors and nurses taking great care of me and Tati!” Tati is Schumer’s dog laying at the foot of the hospital bed. Other common symptoms are vomiting, weight loss, and dehydration.
The stand-up has been touring nationwide, performing recently in Albany, NY and Atlanta. She was forced to cancel shows in Dallas and Austin due to the illness. She regretfully announced, “And Texas I am really really sorry and I’ll be out there as soon as I’m better.” Performances in New Jersey and Pennsylvania this weekend are still listed on her website.
The 37-year-old comedian announced last month that she and her husband Chris Fischer are expecting their first child. The announcement came as a surprise, just like she surprised people with wedding news. The Peabody Award winner married the chef in a secret ceremony back in February after dating just a few months. This is the first time being pregnant has severely impaired her from performing. While pregnant, Schumer has protested the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination, added tour dates to her schedule, and announced the second season of her Spotify podcast. We hope she’ll be back on her feet soon.

Baby’s fine but everyone who says the 2nd trimester is better is not telling the full story. I’ve been even more ill this trimester. I have hyperemesis and it blows. Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bullshit! Sending so much love to the doctors and nurses taking great care of me and Tati! They are cool as hell! And Texas I am really really sorry and I’ll be out there as soon as I’m better.
