Pregnant Amy Schumer Makes Fun of Herself After Hyperemesis Gravidarum Diagnosis
Amy Schumer is maintaining her sense of humor amid battle with hyperemesis gravidarum.
Nearly one month after the comedian was hospitalized for the condition, a form of morning sickness that can carry throughout pregnancy, Schumer gave followers a hilarious glimpse into her new normal on Instagram. The 37-year-old posted a picture of herself hooked up to an IV bag while lounging on her couch.
"Am I glowing? #hyperemesisgravidarum," she joked.
Schumer has been candid with fans about her struggles, recently posting a graphic video of herself vomiting. The video was taken in a public restroom, illustrating the severity of her sickness.
"Hi, I thought it might be fun to see me throwing up in a public bathroom," she said. "Deep in my second trimester and all I can say is nope! Yesterday I did a show 90 minutes later. #soblessed #godsmiracle #lepainbathroom."
Her ongoing nausea has forced her to postpone tour dates and even led to her hospitalization. She opened up about her illness in depth in November, posting a picture from a hospital bed.
"Texas I am so deeply sorry. I have been really looking forward to these shows. I have to reschedule," she wrote. "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."
Schumer 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---! Sending so much love to the doctors and nurses taking great care of me and [my dog] 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."
