But what is it?
Hyperemesis gravidarum is a longstanding pregnancy complication, first coming onto most of our radars when Kate Middleton was revealed to be suffering from it.
The Duchess was admitted to hospital and forced to miss several important events to rest, even having to forego Prince George’s first day at school due to the debilitating condition.
The symptoms? Severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, feeling faint and possible dehydration.
While Kate’s experience definitely raised awareness around the condition, another A-lister seems to have joined her, with 37-year-old comedian Amy Schumer taking to Instagram to announce that she had been diagnosed with the condition.
‘Texas I am so deeply sorry. I have been really looking forward to these shows. I have to reschedule,’ she posted of her need to cancel the gigs she was in town for. ‘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.’
This is Amy’s first pregnancy with her husband Chris Fischer, with the couple announcing the good news in October.
We’re wishing Amy a speedy recovery!
