Pregnant Amy Schumer hospitalized due to severe morning sickness
The comedienne had to cancel her stand-up shows in Texas because of her ill-health, she took to Instagram to tell fans the news.
Stand-up comedienne and actress Amy Schumer has had to cancel her upcoming stand-up shows in Texas because of pregnancy complications.
Daily Mail reports that 37-year-old was rushed to the hospital after struggling with severe morning sickness. Schumer is currently in her second trimester and is expecting a baby with husband Chris Fischer, who she married in February. To inform her fans of this recent development, she put up a picture of herself in the hospital bed on Instagram. The caption read, "Texas I am so deeply sorry. I have been really looking forward to these shows. I have to reschedule. I am in the hospital. I’m fine. Baby’s fine but everyone who says the 2nd trimester is better is not telling the full story." Talking about how difficult the second trimester has been for her, she continues, "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!"
She regretted not being able to perform for fans in Texas saying, "And Texas I am really really sorry and I'll be out there as soon as I'm better." The condition that she mentions in her post is 'Hyperemesis Gravidarum', a pregnancy complication that leads to severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and possibly dehydration. Amy had discussed her difficult pregnancy earlier saying she's been puking almost every day.
Amy announced her pregnancy last month and she did it in a rather unique yet low-key manner, choosing to post the news on her friend's Instagram account rather than on her own social media account. Her friend Jessica Yellin put up a post with a list of candidates people could possibly vote for in the mid-term elections. The post ended with, "I'm pregnant - Amy Schumer."
During a show in Las Vegas, she spoke about her tough pregnancy but also made some jokes about her current condition, to keep the mood light. She said, "You know who it's not fun to be pregnant at the same time as? Meghan Markle! She's walking around in heels and cradling her baby that's not even there, and I'm barely wearing underwear."
Schumer isn't the first celebrity to discuss her struggle with Hyperemesis Gravidarum(HG). Kate Middleton, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kelly Clarkson, and Debra Messing have all suffered from the symptoms of HG during their pregnancies. HG symptoms usually appear between weeks four and six and peak at 9-to-13 weeks. Up to 20 percent of women experience symptoms up to weeks 14-to-20, however, most get better in the later stages.
