"I love doing stand-up more than anything and I hate canceling shows. I have to postpone some until I feel human again.”

Amy Schumer showed just how dedicated she is to her fans in an Instagram post on Wednesday (Nov. 28). The pregnant comedian shared a video of herself violently throwing up in a car on the way to her stand-up show in Tarrytown, N.Y., along with a photo of her later wearing sweatpants and slippers onstage at the end of her set.

"I love doing stand-up more than anything and I hate canceling shows,” Schumer wrote in the caption. “I have to postpone some until I feel human again.” Schumer went on to reassure her fans that she will “make up” the dates for the postponed shows. Schumer was recently forced to cancel a Nov. 15 show on her tour after being hospitalized for “severe, second-trimester nausea.”

“I’m so grateful and excited to be a mom,” Schumer, who revealed she was pregnant in October with her first child, went on to write. “I’m grateful I have access to healthcare, as we all should have.” Schumer then took the opportunity to slam Mississippi Republican Congresswoman Cindy Hyde-Smith, who has voiced her support for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. This is not the first time Schumer has used her platform to make a political statement. She was also detained after participating in a protest against Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court.

Turn sound off if you have a weak stomach. This was my ride to my show at @tarrytownmusichall tonight and a picture from the end of my set. I love doing stand-up more than anything and I hate cancelling shows. I have to postpone some until I feel human again. But i will make up these dates and we will have a great time. I’m so proud of my stand up right now and can’t wait to share it. Thanks to the amazing crowd tonight for being so warm and such great laughers and for being cool with my sweatpants and slippers on stage. Shots by @marcusrussellprice we are shooting a doc of me these past few months leading up to a special Im filming and you will see that I’m strugglin right now. But I’m so grateful and excited to be a mom. I’m grateful I have access to healthcare, as we all should have. But I guess what I’m really saying is Fuck Hyde-Smith and anyone who voted for her. My feelings on her are best expressed by the above video. And I don’t usually agree with speaking ill of crackheads, but she has a crackhead looking mouth. Tiny racist teeth confederate ass campaign with her crack mouth said she would attend a public hanging. #crackmouth #tinyracistteeth #hyperemesisgravidarum
