Amy Schumer Hospitalized With Hyperemesis Gravidarum 2018

Amy Schumer Gets Candid About Hyperemesis Gravidarum: "This Is Some Bullsh*t"

After announcing her pregnancy in late October, Amy Schumer disclosed she's suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, or severe morning sickness. The comedian was also forced to cancel several shows in Texas due to her condition. "I have hyperemesis and it blows. Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bullsh*t," Amy said on Instagram.

The comedian shared that her HG symptoms worsened in her second trimester. "Baby's fine but everyone who says the second trimester is better is not telling the full story," she said. "I've been even more ill this trimester." Amy previously referenced her morning sickness with an ultrasound video of her energetic baby. "It has so much energy — that's why I'm puking every day," she wrote at the time.

While nausea is considered a standard pregnancy symptom, HG — which Kate Middleton also struggled with — is entirely different. In an interview with POPSUGAR, Sherry Ross, MD, an OB-GYN and women's health expert, said, "With HG, eating and drinking is a nightmare; the nausea and vomiting can become so severe it leads to weight loss, malnutrition, dehydration, and even possible hospitalization."

Though there are no known causes, it may be caused by hormonal changes, psychological factors, or a blood sugar imbalance, among other things. Fortunately, Ross said HG symptoms tend to improve in the latter half of pregnancy.
