The actress revealed last month that she and her husband, Chris Fischer, were expecting their first child.

Amy Schumer on Thursday took to Instagram to let fans know that she was hospitalized in Texas with hyperemesis gravidarum, a pregnancy complication characterized by intense nausea.

"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," the I Feel Pretty actress wrote alongside a photo of herself resting in bed.

Continued Schumer: "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!"

Because of her health issues, the star — who is expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer — was forced to cancel several upcoming comedy shows, including one scheduled for Thursday at the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House in Dallas, as she recuperates. "And Texas I am really really sorry and I’ll be out there as soon as I’m better," she added. 

Schumer and Fischer announced their baby news in October. "Chris and I are thrilled and almost positive he’s the father," Schumer joked in a statement to the Los Angeles Times. "I look forward to competing with [Meghan] Markle every step of the way." (Markle is also pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Prince Harry.)
