Amy Schumer has had to cancel her comedy tour due to hyperemesis gravidarum, or severe morning sickness.
The 37-year-old comedian announced in October that she’s pregnant with her first child with her husband, Chris Fischer. Last week, she posted an ultrasound video of her little one in the womb and revealed that she’s been struggling with nausea.
“Oh my God, oh my God! See? It has so much energy — that’s why I’m puking every day,” Amy said in the video.
Yesterday, she took to Instagram again to explain that her morning sickness has become so bad, she’s now in the hospital.
“I am in the hospital,” Amy wrote. “I’m fine. Baby’s fine but everyone who says the 2nd trimester is better is not telling the full story.”
Amy apologized to her fans in Texas for having to postpone her shows there.
“Texas I am really really sorry and I’ll be out there as soon as I’m better.”
In late October, Amy Schumer announced that she and her husband, Chris Fischer, are expecting their first child.
The comedy star posted a video of her watching an ultrasound of the baby last Monday. In the process, she revealed that she’s been pretty ill during her pregnancy.
“It has so much energy — that’s why I’m puking every day,” Amy said at the time.

Yesterday, she revealed that the morning sickness has gotten worse, not better. Amy was hospitalized for hyperemesis gravidarum, or severe morning sickness.
As a result, she has to cancel her shows for now.
“Texas I am so deeply sorry. I have been really looking forward to these shows. I have to reschedule,” Amy wrote on Instagram.
“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,” she continued. “I’ve been even more ill this trimester.”

“I have hyperemesis and it blows. Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bulls***!”
Hyperemesis gravidarum is a much, much more severe version of morning sickness, an ob-gyn and women’s health expert told PopSugar. It’s more intense than the standard nausea that most pregnant women experience.
