Amy Schumer Hospitalized for Pregnancy-Related Condition, Postpones Tour Date

Amy Schumer has had to postpone a Texas date on her current tour due to a pregnancy-related condition that has left her hospitalized.

“I am in the hospital. I’m fine. Baby’s fine,” Schumer said on Instagram 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 5% 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 hospitalized 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.”

Schumer’s next scheduled tour date is on Nov. 17 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.
