The day couldn’t come sooner for Amy, who has been documenting her pregnancy journey and sharing her major struggles. Like many pregnant women, Amy has faced some discomfort while carrying her baby. During these unforgettable nine months, she had hyperemesis gravidarum, which “is a condition characterized by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and electrolyte disturbance. Mild cases are treated with dietary changes, rest, and antacids,” according to the American Pregnancy Association. “More severe cases often require a stay in the hospital so that the mother can receive fluid and nutrition through an intravenous line (IV).”
In November 2018, the Trainwreck actress had no other option but to cancel the remaining dates of her stand-up tour due to those exact complications. “Texas I am so deeply sorry. I have been really looking forward to these shows. I have to reschedule. I am in the hospital,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “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. I have hyperemesis and it blows. Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bulls–t! 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.”
Despite the downsides, Amy has experienced plenty of happy moments carrying her little one. On Sunday, March 31, she showed off her bare bump in a very empowering mirror selfie. “Feeling strong and beautiful today #didntpuke,” she captioned the Instagram photo. At least the days of nausea are over. Congrats on your bundle of joy, Amy!
