She’s putting things on pause. Comedian Amy Schumer has been incredibly vocal about her complications as she makes her way through her first pregnancy with her husband, Chris Fischer. But on February 22, the 37-year-old made one of her biggest announcements yet about her struggle with hyperemesis on her Instagram.
“Due to complications from hyperemesis, I am not cleared to fly for the next couple of weeks. I am going to cancel the remainder of my tour. Refunds are available at point of purchase,” she began her detailed post.
“The baby and I are healthy and everything looks good. But I am in my [third] trimester and I am still nauseous all the time and vomiting,” she wrote. “I vomit mostly every time I ride in a car even for [five] minutes.”
Luckily, the funny girl is taking things in stride. “I have a pretty good attitude about it and some days I feel good for a couple hours. But mostly it sucks. I wanted to push through and do my shows,” she explained. “Because I hate letting people down and I love stand-up and money! But more than that I have to think about my health and the baby.”
“I know you guys get it and people are like. Bitch are you [OK]? Take it easy but it’s still embarrassing to have to cancel,” she concluded her note. We feel you, girl, but we support you. Rest is key!
This isn’t the first time Amy has had to break work commitments due to her pregnancy. She was forced to reschedule shows in Texas in November 2018 after being hospitalized from the condition.

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. 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.
“Texas, I am so deeply sorry,” she captioned a photo of herself in a hospital bed on Instagram. “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 [second] 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!”
Amy went public with her pregnancy in October, so she’s only got a few months left to go and we know once she gives birth, she’ll be back onstage and better than ever. Plus, she’ll probably have some great new jokes, too. Get well soon, girl!
