In an Instagram post this weekend, Amy Schumer announced that she’s canceling the remainder of her stand-up tour to focus on her health after dealing with complications with hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition that causes severe nausea and vomiting in pregnancies.
“Due to complications from hyperemesis I am not cleared to fly for the next couple weeks,” she wrote in her post. “I am going to cancel the remainder of my tour. Refunds are available at point of purchase.”

“The baby and I are healthy and everything looks good. But I am in my third trimester and I am still nauseous all the time and vomiting,” she continued. “I vomit mostly every time I ride in a car even for five minutes. I have a pretty good attitude about it and some days I feel good for a couple of hours. But mostly it sucks.”
Schumer added that she was disappointed this meant canceling the tour. “I wanted to push through and do my shows. Because I hate letting people down and I love stand up and money! But more than that I have to think about my health and the baby. I know you guys get it and people are like. Bitch are you ok? Take it easy but it’s still embarrassing to have to cancel.”
Fans responded with messages of support, encouraging Schumer to take time for herself and the baby. “HG is the worst mama. Hang in there and take care of yourself! You are almost to the end!” one person reminded her. “A momma’s gotta do, what a momma’s gotta do. Hope you’re feeling better ASAP,” another wrote.
