When She Made Fun of Common Pregnancy Stereotypes
Celebrity pregnancies can sometimes seem so easy, perfect, and glamorous, which leaves those of us who spent 90 percent of our nine months looking for a place to either throw up or lie down (or both) saying, "Wait! Why? HOW?" But thankfully, we have Amy Schumer, who has never been afraid to be unfiltered and honest about every aspect of her life, which now includes the sh*tstorm that is pregnancy.
The comedian has been sharing her incredibly tough first pregnancy with her fans via Instagram, and we can't help but deeply feel for her and say, "Same, girl. Same." Instead of being sick during her first trimester and getting better, she's been suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, which is when you pretty much vomit nonstop. Schumer has felt so ill that she's ended up in the hospital and canceled a few of her stand-up shows.
But her battle with severe morning sickness hasn't dampened her sense of humor. In addition to keeping things very real, she also makes sure to laugh at it all and remind herself how lucky she feels to be a mom-to-be. In one particularly poignant post, Schumer said, "The last few days have been tough. I'm grateful as hell and know it's temporary but tough just the same. Please if you don't mind. Post pics of your kids and tag me #amyschumer My friends sending me pics and vids of their kids is making me feel so much better. Much love 🤮 accepting dog photos too."
Keep reading to see some of Schumer's most relatable pregnancy moments, which are sure to have you laughing, maybe gagging, and most importantly, realizing even movie stars can feel like total sh*t when they're expecting!
