"We are freezing my eggs and figuring out what to do to give Gene a sibling," shares Schumer in a super honest Instagram post.
And this week she shared that she's not done yet. Her son Gene is now 8 months old and Amy just started IVF.
IVF can be extremely difficult and it's refreshing to see Amy using her platform to talk about how making babies isn't always easy (or enjoyable). Sometimes it hurts physically and emotionally.
Amy Schumer: "I'm a week into IVF..."
Schumer posted a photo of her belly Thursday, showing her C-section scar and bruises from procedures associated with IVF.
"I'm a week into IVF and feeling really run down and emotional. If anyone went through it and if you have any advice or wouldn't mind sharing your experience with me please do. My number is in my bio. We are freezing my eggs and figuring out what to do to give Gene a sibling," she captioned the pic.
Figuring out how to expand her family
Schumer had a very rough pregnancy with Gene. She was vomiting daily to the point of requiring multiple hospitalizations and IVs. It wasn't fun, but becoming a mom has been. She marked the end of 2019 with a picture of herself, her husband Chris and baby Gene, and wrote: "This has been by far the best year of my life and I spent half of it vomiting everyday."
From her posts on Instagram it's clear motherhood means a lot to Schumer.
She went through a lot to get Gene and now she's preparing to go through a lot again, during this IVF journey. We don't know if that journey will end in a pregnancy, surrogacy or what, but we hope that it ends in a sibling for Gene because that's what Schumer and her husband want.
Good luck on your IVF journey, Amy. It's not easy but you've got this.
