Over the weekend, the comedian, 38, posted a photo of herself and husband Chris Fischer, which was taken after the pair played “doubles volleyball” together. “Three months after a C playing doubles volleyball for 90 minutes!” she captioned the selfie. “I feel so strong!” Schumer went on to list of some of the top things she’s recommending these days, including New Yorker writer Jia Tolentino’s new book Trick Mirror and Quentin Tarantino’s film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which she described as “very fun.” Saving the best for last, Schumer wrote that she wanted “to recommend being a parent if you can.” “It’s nuts,” she added.

Amy Schumer Shares New Photo of 7-Week-Old Son Gene: ‘Always Down for a Nap and a Good Cry’ Schumer, who welcomed her first child, son Gene Attell, with Fischer on May 5, has been extremely candid about the difficulties of the postpartum period, which is often referred to as the “fourth trimester” of pregnancy. “Nothing can prepare you for childbirth and what comes after,” she told PEOPLE last month at the launch of Frida Mom, a line with products aimed at new mothers post-delivery.

Schumer struggled with hyperemesis gravidarum, a form of acute morning sickness, throughout her pregnancy. Last month, the comedian also celebrated another milestone in her postpartum journey: getting her period again. “First period in a year,” Schumer triumphantly captioned a slideshow of images that showed her and Fischer cozying up together on the beach, adding dozens of red-colored emojis as well as a trio of tornados.
