Amy Schumer has canceled her Dallas show on Thursday after landing in the hospital.

While this is the first time (that we know of) Schumer has been hospitalized for the condition, the actress posted a video on November 5 of an ultrasound appointment and said she's been sick every day thus far in her pregnancy.

"Texas I am so deeply sorry", she wrote. I have been looking forward to these shows. "I have to reschedule", she shared, promising, "I'll be out there as soon as I'm better". I am in the hospital. I'm fine, ' she said.

'I've been even more ill this trimester.

The 37-year-old and husband Chris Fischer are expecting their first child together. "Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bulls-!"

On Instagram, Schumer also showed the hospital staff taking care of her "so much love", and she apologized to her fans who had expected to see her in comedy shows, as she had to cancel. They are cool as hell!

The 20-year-old has 109 appearances under his belt for the German giants to date, scoring 15 goals and has been widely tipped for a bright future at the top level of the game.

Earlier this month, Schumer told Entertainment Tonight her pregnancy had been "really tough" so far, but last week she posted video of herself responding to seeing her baby kick on a sonogram.

Hyperemesis is extreme morning sickness characterized by severe nausea and vomiting. In an Instagram Story supporting voting during the USA midterm elections, Schumer casually confirmed: "I'm pregnant".

She quipped: 'You know who it's not fun to be pregnant at the same time as?

Schumer announced her pregnancy in October, via her friend Jessica Yellin's Instagram account.

It affects up to two percent of pregnant women. While hyperemesis is rare, Mayo Clinic reports that it may require hospitalization such as with Schumer's case.
