Comedian Amy Schumer canceled a stand-up performance in Dallas on Thursday after being hospitalized for nausea.

Schumer, who announced that she was pregnant in October, said in an Instagram post that her nausea and other related symptoms have worsened during the second trimester of her pregnancy.


"Texas I am so deeply sorry. I have been really looking forward to these shows. I have to reschedule. I am in the hospital," Schumer wrote in a post on Thursday afternoon.

"I’m fine. Baby’s fine but everyone who says the 2nd trimester is better is not telling the full story," the comedian added. "I’ve been even more ill this trimester. I have hyperemesis and it blows. Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bullshit!"

The comedian and political activist announced her pregnancy last month in a social media post that also featured her endorsement of several Democratic politicians running in last Tuesday's midterm elections.
