Last month, comedian Amy Schumer revealed that she’s expecting a baby with husband, chef Chris Fischer.

The 37-year-old revealed the news on her Instagram story, while also encouraging fans to go and vote in the midterm elections, Fox 10 reported.

This will be Schumer’s first child with Fischer, who she married at an intimate ceremony in California last February.

However, her pregnancy journey hasn’t been easy.

Schumer suffered from morning sickness in her first trimester, which continued to escalate during her second trimester, she said on Instagram.

And on Thursday, the comedian was hospitalized.

In an Instagram post, Schumer confirmed that she’s suffering from hyperemesis gravidarium, an acute type of morning sickness that causes more extreme symptoms.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, hyperemesis causes severe vomiting and dehydration that often leads to hospitalization.

Schumer had to cancel one of her shows in Texas due to her illness, she wrote:

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. I’ve been even more ill this trimester.

She continued:

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.

Following the post, fellow moms with similar experiences flooded the comedian with well-wishes. One Instagram user wrote:

I had hyperemesis as well and it totally blowed!!! My thoughts are with you, I know what it’s like, but you can do it! It’s worth it, I’m sure you’ve heard that a million times and you prob wanna slap everyone person that tells you that, but that’s all I had to hold on to that really helped.

It’s unclear if Schumer remains hospitalized as of today, or if she was released.
