You don’t stop being you: Amy Schumer gets real about pregnancy

Amy Schumer proves that being pregnant doesn't mean that you change as a person.

The 37-year-old is bringing her hilarious show, Growing, to Netflix and in it she delve straight into the realities of pregnancy.

The comedian, who is expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer, joked about how becoming pregnant didn't change who she was. 

She said, ''Here’s the thing, you’re pregnant, but, like, you don’t change who you are. I hate women who start to act like really precious. You don’t stop being you, you know? You don’t stop working…or drinking.''

She also suffered from hyperemesis throughout her pregnancy right up until her third trimester and says that, ''If you’re someone who enjoys being pregnant… then I just hope your car flips over. That’s what I wish for you.''

Amy was forced to cancel the rest of her US tour as due to her sickness, doctors haven’t cleared her to fly.

She posted to Instagram an apology to her fans.

She wrote, ''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. 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.''

She continued, ''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.''

Her fans rushed to wish her well. 

One said, ''Hyperemesis is very serious and not to be trifled with! I had it as well and mine included daily panic attacks. The fact that you were even trying to do shows is amazing! Take care of yourself.''

While another wrote, ''Don't be embarrassed! We've got you. It's time to rest up and take care of you and your little. Thanks for making us laugh and for reminding us that we are all in this together.''

We can't wait to see her show and wish her all the best for the rest of her pregnancy.
