Pregnancy is not the same for everyone and for some expectant moms it can be downright miserable. Amy Schumer has been completely and hilariously open about how difficult her pregnancy was, but now that her baby has arrived she’s come to an important revelation.

Throughout her pregnancy Schumer suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition that causes extreme nausea and vomiting. As a comedian, she couldn’t help but make jokes about her challenging pregnancy both on social media and in her stand-up tour, which she was forced to cut short due to her condition. Schumer took to Instagram right before Mother’s Day to reflect on her pregnancy and share that it was all worth it.

In the lengthy post, Schumer recaps her experience with pregnancy and giving birth, sharing how thankful she is to her friends that encouraged her and supported her along the way. “All my friends. Friends I’ve had for 30 years or people who encouraged me to ‘keep going’ or telling me ‘it will be worth it.’ Thank you. Every woman I encountered is so willing to help and advise you and I felt all their strength. And you were right.”

From difficult pregnancies to terrible twos and those challenging teen years, motherhood is filled with moments that aren’t easy and that can be overwhelming, but no matter how hard it gets, it’s all worth it.
