Pregnant Amy Schumer has posted a photo of herself attached to an IV drip.

The actress and comic, 37, is expecting her first child and experiencing hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness.

Posting an image to Instagram of herself lying on a sofa, Schumer wrote: “Am I glowing?”

The American stand-up last month cancelled a string of tour dates in US cities including Los Angeles, Baltimore and Philadelphia after falling ill.

She has since been vocal about her experience of the illness, once posting a video to social media of herself vomiting into a cup.

Schumer and her husband, Chris Fischer, announced in late October that they were expecting their first child together.

The couple married in February.
