Schumer has been open about the struggles of motherhood, including breastfeeding and switching to a bottle.

“Some people just absolutely love it and I’m so happy for them, and it was just bumming me out. But then I was also kind of proud doing it and whatever and getting him the milk and stuff,” she recently said. “Then once it occurred to me that I could stop. I was like, ‘I’m going to stop.’ … And then, every week what I did was just took away one session of the pumping.”

And to continue to her openness, the “Trainwreck” star updated her fans on her IVF treatment as well as thanking them for supporting her.

“Thank you ladies and a few gentleman. We are gonna freeze embryos hopefully,” she wrote on Instagram.

“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,” she continued to say referencing the remedies other women shared. “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!”
