Amy Schumer took to Instagram to share a pregnancy update with her fans, revealing she had to cancel her Dallas tour because she was hospitalized due to hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe type of morning sickness.

“Texas I am so deeply sorry. I have been really looking forward to these shows,” she says to fans. “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. ”

True to form, the comedian attempts to make light of the situation, but there is no getting around the level of discomfort for those who suffer from the condition.

“Very lucky to be pregnant, but this is some bullsh*t! Sending so much love to the doctors and nurses taking great care of me and Tati,” Schumer says.

Hyperemesis gravidarum is defined as extreme, persistent nausea and vomiting, which, as with Schumer’s case, can land you in the hospital with dehydration. Symptoms sometimes don’t let up after the first trimester and can stick with you the whole darn pregnancy.

While up to 90 percent of pregnant women develop some level of morning sickness, at least 60,000 cases are severe enough to be considered hyperemesis gravidarum. And, since many cases may go unreported, the actual numbers could be even higher. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do to prevent it, but find some comfort in knowing while it’s sheer misery when you’re in the brunt of it, it will all go away the moment baby is born.

Like Schumer and countless other moms-to-be, when Kate Middleton was pregnant with Prince Louis, she also suffered from the condition.
