US comedian Amy Schumer has had to postpone a Texas date on her current tour due to a pregnancy-related condition that has lseen her taken to hospital.
“I am in the hospital. I’m fine. Baby’s fine,” Schumer said on Instagram on Thursday.
“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 bulls***!”
According to Mayo Clinic, hyperemesis gravidarum occurs “when someone with nausea and vomiting of pregnancy has severe symptoms that may cause severe dehydration or result in the loss of more than five per cent of pre-pregnancy body weight”.
Schumer is expecting a baby with husband Chris Fischer, and expressed regret at having to cancel the Texas show, which was scheduled for Thursday evening in Dallas.
“Texas I am really really sorry and I’ll be out there as soon as I’m better,” she said.
Schumer was most recently in hospital for five days in April with a “horrible” kidney infection, causing her to miss the premiere of her film I Feel Pretty.
She said at the time that she was working to “put (her) health first”.
