Amy Schumer is keeping it real.
The “Trainwreck” star, who has been bracingly honest about going through IVF to try to conceive a second child, posted an update on Instagram.
“They retrieved 35 eggs from me,” the 38-year-old comedian wrote. “Not bad for the old gal right?? Then 26 fertilized! Whoah right? For all of those we got 1 normal embryo from that and 2 low level mosaic (mosiac means there are some abnormal cells but can still lead to a healthy baby) So we feel lucky we got 1.”
Schumer, who married chef Chris Fischer in 2018, chronicled her difficult pregnancy with son Gene on social media, documenting her hospital visits and extreme morning sickness. She gave birth in May 2018.
Earlier this year, the Comedy Central star posted a photo of her bruised stomach and revealed that she was undergoing IVF treatments.
“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,” she wrote. “My number is in my bio. We are freezing my eggs and figuring out what to do to give Gene a sibling. ❤️”
Schumer also said that hearing from other women about their fertility treatments is encouraging and once again asked anyone to text her their experiences (Her phone number is listed in her Instagram bio), explaining that she reads the messages when she’s unable to sleep.
