Amy Schumer says she is ‘staying positive' as she shares IVF update

The star is currently just over a week into treatment.

Amy Schumer has said she is “staying positive” and that she hopes to get her embryos frozen.

The US actress and husband Chris Fischer are hoping to have another baby after welcoming son Gene in May last year.

Schumer, 38, previously admitted she was feeling “really run down and emotional” after a week of IVF, and asked her followers to share their experiences of similar treatment.

In her latest post, she said: “Thank you ladies and a few gentleman. We are gonna freeze embryos hopefully.

“I learned to eat salty food after and drink Gatorade. Ice the area. Take arnica and put arnica on the bruises.

“To be patient and kind to myself and that there are sooooo many of us willing to be there for each other.

“Your stories helped me more than you can imagine. I feel incredibly lucky. I’m really hoping this works and staying positive. Much much love!”

She added a strong arm emoji.

Schumer also shared a photo of herself lying on an examination table with her feet in a stirrup, waiting for treatment.

She and celebrity chef Fischer became parents to Gene on May 5 last year.

Throughout her first pregnancy, the star battled severe morning sickness, known as hyperemesis gravidarum.
