“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 Emmy winner, 37, wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of herself resting in a hospital bed.

“I have hyperemesis and it blows,” she continued. “Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bulls–t! Sending so much love to the doctors and nurses taking great care of me and Tati! They are cool as hell!”

Schumer also announced that she was forced to postpone a series of upcoming stand-up comedy shows, including one scheduled for Thursday at the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, as she recovers.

“Texas I am so deeply sorry,” she wrote. “I have been really looking forward to these shows. I have to reschedule. … I’ll be out there as soon as I’m better.”

The Trainwreck star, who was previously hospitalized in April for what she described as a “horrible” kidney infection, announced in October that she is expecting her first child with her husband, Chris Fischer.

“Chris and I are thrilled and almost positive he’s the father,” she quipped in a statement to the Los Angeles Times. “I look forward to competing with [Meghan] Markle every step of the way.” (The duchess, 37, is expecting her first child with husband Prince Harry.)

Schumer and the Beetlebung Farm Cookbook author, 38, tied the knot in a surprise ceremony in Malibu in February after just a few months of dating.
