Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner: Expecting Rainbow Baby!!!!!09/07/2019
Before we even start this post, we just want to say the following:
We’re not crying. YOU’RE crying, okay?!?
We just wanted to get that straight.
Married at First Sight and The Bachelor alum Jamie Otis announced on Friday night that she is pregnant with a rainbow baby, just a few months after she and husband Doug Hehner suffered a miscarriage.
This January 2019 followed a miscarriage Otis also suffered in September of last year.
The couple has been through a great deal, but they now have a new reason to maintain hope.
Otis and Hehner confirmed their major news on the latter’s podcast, “Hot Marriage. Cool Parents,” telling listeners that they’re expecting their second child … again.
Jamie also revealed on Instagram that she is at least four weeks along — the earliest a pregnancy can be detected on a blood test — and included photos of her and her spouse holding a sonogram, which depicts what looks to be the beginning of a gestational sac.
“We went to the fertility specialist and found out WE ARE PREGNANT!!!” Otis wrote as a caption.
“I cannot even believe it!…after 18 long, painful months, two losses and negative after negative on the pregnancy tests we are *finally* pregnant again!
“Of course I am being cautiously optimistic, but I have a feeling this little one is going to stick.”
The sad truth is that most miscarriages take place within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
So there’s still a chance Jamie and Doug lose this baby.
Otis proceeded to delve into personal detail of her and the child growing inside of her, writing:
“The only thing is, yesterday the nurse called and said my blood work came back a bit different than anticipated.
“Based on my last period, I should be about 4 weeks along. The blood work to support this would look like this: progesterone 8-10 & HCG 50-300.
“My blood work came back like this: progesterone 51 & HCG 1,441 !!!
“This means that I’m either further along OR I could potentially have TWINS! (They said it’s most likely I’m further along but I would absolutely love twins!).”
Otis and Hehner are already parents to a two-year-old daughter named Henley Grace.
In 2016, Otis became pregnant but confirmed a stillbirth of their son in her second trimester.
Exactly a year ago, the reality star had a chemical pregnancy (or very early miscarriage detected days after conception).
In January, she revealed that she suffered a 10-week miscarriage.
Many fans reached out to Otis to show support after she posted online about her losses.
“Thank you, thank you, *THANK YOU!* for all the encouragement, love, & prayers. IT WORKED! WE ARE FINALLY PREGNANT !!!!!” she wrote in her post on Saturday.
“And before I end this looong caption, I just want to say this: if you’re reading this & are currently in the process of #ttc – oh mama, my heart hurts for you.
“I know the instant internal pain that comes from another’s pregnancy announcement – even if you are or at least want to be – happy for the lucky couple.
“I just want you to know that your rainbow will come too. The storm cant stay forever. Hold onto hope! I am thinking of you!
