After suffering a devastating miscarriage in 2016, Jamie Otis has tried to remain positive during her second pregnancy, but the Married at First Sight alum recently admitted to feeling anxious as she hit the 15-week mark.
Next to a picture of her baby bump on Instagram, the 30-year-old wrote, “I truly haven't been overly worried with this pregnancy. I think bc it has been completely different than my first I've felt confident this baby will grow safe and sound inside me… I haven't had any spotting, bleeding, or clots so I've felt like I am having a healthier pregnancy this time... I haven't had any cramping either... at least not until yesterday.”
The brunette beauty continued, “I began the slightest cramping & they've lasted two full days now. They're really mild cramps so I'm sure it's nothing (my doc says baby and I are absolutely fine) but for whatever reason I've been really nervous.”
Jamie went on to reveal, “We lost our angel Johnathan at 17 weeks, 1 day. I just want to get past 17 weeks and feel this baby move. I want to know our sweet baby is safe, healthy, and happy growing inside me. Being pregnant is one of the most joyous experiences, but it's also one of the scariest.”
As fans of the reality star and her husband Doug Hehner know, the couple lost their first child in July. “Our baby Hehner was just too beautiful for Earth,” Jamie said at the time. “I love him so much — always will — and can’t wait to meet him in heaven one day. Please pray for us.”
They revealed they are expecting again last month. “I wanted to share with family and friends before announcing publicly, but I knew I wasn't waiting the socially acceptable ‘3 months’ like I was ‘supposed’ to,” Jamie wrote, posing underneath an arch of rainbow-colored balloons representing her deceased son.
