We're SO Invested in Amy Schumer's Relatable IVF Journey
Update: Amy Schumer has updated her followers about the next steps in her fertility journey. Taking to social media, the 38-year-old comedian thanked her followers who shared advice in her time of need and shared a vulnerable Instagram post detailing her freezing her eggs.
"We are gonna freeze embryos hopefully," she shared on Instagram. "I learned to eat salty food after and drink Gatorade. Ice the area. Take arnica and put arnica on the bruises. To be patient and kind to myself and that there are sooooo many of us willing to be there for each other. Your stories helped me more than you can imagine. I feel incredibly lucky. I'm really hoping this works and staying positive. Much much love!"
Proving she still has humour throughout her struggles, she also shared two videos of her under some kind of anaesthetic, rambling about her non-existent hat and "having a blast at a bar".

Original Story: Legendary Comedian, Amy Schumer has always been open and honest about her struggles with pregnancy, and today, she opened up on Instagram to reveal her current struggles with IVF.
"I'm a week into IVF and feeling really run down and emotional." she said, along with a post of her belly, showing her c-section scar and some bruising.
Clearly feeling helpless in the face of her new battle, she put her real phone number in her bio, urging fans facing the same struggles to send her advice and share their experiences. "If anyone went through it and if you have any advice or wouldn't mind sharing your experience with me please do. My number is in my bio."
During her first pregnancy, Schumer suffered from a rare condition called hyperemesis gravidarum, which is when you basically vomit nonstop, and often ended up hospitalised or on an IV.
She went on to reveal that this is all in the hopes of giving Gene a sibling, "we are freezing my eggs and figuring out what to do to give Gene a sibling."
