Amy Schumer Cancels Tour Due to Hyperemesis
It’s no secret that Amy Schumer has had a rough pregnancy. She had full intentions of working all the way through her pregnancy but every pregnancy is different and you never know how you will feel for each one. If you have been following her on social media she has been pretty open about the fact that she has been sick through each trimester. Amy has finally reached her third trimester but has had to cancel her tour due to Hyperemesis Gracidarum, also known as HG.
Hyperemesis gravidarum is a condition characterized by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and electrolyte disturbance.” – American Pregnancy Association.
In other words, it is an extremely rare but serious type of morning sickness. Friday Amy Schumer announced that she would be canceling her tour because of the Hyperemesis Gracidarum.
I vomit mostly every time i ride in a car even for 5 minutes.” – Amy Schumer stated on Instagram.
Due to the extreme circumstances of her HG she was not cleared to fly and will be unable to finish her tour.
Amy Schumer posted a picture of her in a hospital bed with her dog Tati when she announced that she would be canceling certain shows. “I’ve been even more ill this trimester,” Amy 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. 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.
Hyperemesis Affects Others as Well
“With the first pregnancy, I wound up going to the ER about five times to get IV fluids, because I was so dehydrated. I always felt great immediately afterwards, but it didn’t last. After a while I was so dehydrated that they placed a PICC line in my arm, which is a semi-permanent IV. I had a home health nurse who would come and give me fluids through the PICC line at home. It was not a fun pregnancy.” – Emily Shackelford
Hyperemesis can cause serious effects but thankfully Zofran has helped Amy and many others with their extreme morning sickness. Zofran is an anti-nausea drug that is safe to take during pregnancy. Be sure to consult your doctor before taking any medication while pregnant.
Soon you will be chasing a mini you around and we all can’t wait to see that little bundle of joy!
Get Better Soon Amy!
