Bachelor, Married at First Sight, News, Reality TV

Married at First Sight couple Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner have had a rough 18 months. The couple has been trying to conceive. In that time period, Jamie suffered two miscarriages and the disappointment of getting negative pregnancy tests month after month. The couple is now happy to announce that Jamie is pregnant again. She has been amazing at sharing the good and the bad things with her fertility struggles and now her new pregnancy.

Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner share pregnancy news with fans

Jamie and Doug started seeing a fertility specialist not too long ago after struggling to become pregnant. On September 7, Jamie took to Instagram to share her news that she was pregnant again. In the emotional post, Jamie and Doug are still at the fertility clinic, holding an ultrasound photo for all to see.

In the post Jamie said, “We went to the fertility specialist and found out WE ARE PREGNANT!!!🤰🏼 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 only thing is, yesterday the nurse called and said my blood work came back a bit different than anticipated.”

She went on to say her blood work was better than expected. This could mean she is either further along or could possibly be carrying twins. Doug replied to her post saying, “I knew my boys could swim!🤣 … love you so much jam! Here we grow again! Henley’s going to be the best big sister! 👧🏼👶🏼.”

We went to the fertility specialist and found out WE ARE PREGNANT!!!🤰🏼 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 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!)💞 • Thank you, thank you, *THANK YOU!* for all the encouragement, love, & prayers. IT WORKED! WE ARE FINALLY PREGNANT !!!!! 🤰🏼💗✨ • 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!👶🏼🌈 • ….@doughehner & I recorded a bonus podcast ep on @hotmarriagecoolparents so we could share the WHOLE story on how we found out the best news of our lives with you!

Jamie has fertility appointments regularly to monitor pregnancy

On September 13, Jamie and Doug had another appointment with the fertility specialist. She once again posted the details about their visit on Instagram. In the photo, seen below, the two are hugging holding another ultrasound photo.

Jamie captioned the photo saying, “After 18 months & 2 losses, WE *FINALLY* HAVE A VIABLE PREGNANCY!!!!🤰🏼✨👶🏼💫🙏🏻 My fertility appointment went so well!☺️The doc saw a growing amniotic sac and yolk sac! My hcg levels are now 11,453.1 & progesterone is off the charts reading >60 (!!!) which essentially just means everything is going smoothly!👏🏻.”

She continued her post saying they still did not have an official due date other than May 2020. Jamie also commented that they are not thinking it is twins anymore. Only one amniotic sac could be seen on the ultrasound.

My HCG is higher than average for about 5 weeks along so there is still a glimmer of hope!🤣 But either way—we are obvs HAPPY with 1, 2, or 10 babies! Just hoping for HEALTHY!☺️ • Also, for those of you who saw my stories and sent healing vibes to Gracie – thank you!!! She is feeling so much better now!🙏🏻 • I’ve gotten so many questions about what we did differently after 18 months of trying & I want to be able help others trying to conceive if we can… We recorded a full @hotmarriagecoolparents podcast ep on *all* the things I did differently to get to this positive pregnancy test.🤰🏼🙏🏻 The last 2 months I’ve drastically changed my lifestyle and it seems to be working!🤞🏼 And hey, if you’re #ttc and nothing else has worked for ya – it wouldn’t hurt to try, right?!🤷🏼‍♀️ At least that’s how I felt! Link In bio to the podcast! Sending you lots of love & sticky baby dust, mama!✨👶🏼 • I can’t help but let you know {again} how appreciative we’ve been for all your thoughts, prayers, and encouragement! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, *THANK YOU* FOR ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT!🙏🏻 WE LOVE YOU! And if you’re on the TTC struggle-bus, I’m here for you mama!💗 • • #mafs #marriedatfirstsight #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #pregnancyjourney #pregnant #firsttrimester #preggo #preggers #babydust #tryingtoconceive #positive #pregnancy #miscarriage #pregnancyloss #awareness #marriedlife #parentinggoals #girlmom #momlife #momproblems #momprobs #husbandandwife #pregnancydiary #babybump #nevergiveup #hope

Jamie shares some troubling news on social media

Taking to Instagram again, Jamie shared some potentially bad news with supporters. She said, “I’ve been SURE about this pregnancy up until recently..and it’s kinda my own fault.😕 A few days ago my fertility nurse called and told me my progesterone levels dropped. It wasn’t terrible, but she told me that I should continue to take the progesterone suppositories like the doc subscribed.” Jamie continued, “This is so embarrassing to admit, but I assumed bc my progesterone levels were so high a couple weeks ago (they were literally off the charts) that I could stop taking the supplements. I was prescribed them as a precaution and since I’ve been so sick and tired (and the side effects are -TMI, but being honest with ya- super gross discharges😳 I just assumed I’d be fine without them.”

She also admitted that being an RN and a labor and delivery nurse she should have known better than to stop the pills without discussing it with her doctor. Jamie went on to say she was back on her meds and seeing the doctor again the next morning.

I was prescribed them as a precaution and since I’ve been so sick and tired (and the side effects are -TMI, but being honest with ya- super gross discharges😳 I just assumed I’d be fine without them. • Well, apparently I need them. I’m a labor and delivery nurse. I should know better than to just stop taking meds without chatting w my doc.🤦🏼‍♀️ I’ve been pretty upset with myself bc I could’ve been the reason to potentially lose this pregnancy. HOW SILLY OF ME. • @doughehner is the freakin best bc he’s way more gentle on me. If you listened to our recent ep of @hotmarriagecoolparents we chat about it and he was so kind to me…super understanding.🙏🏻😭💗 • Obvs I began taking them again immediately and now I just have to wait and see if the levels rise again. I go see the fertility doc tomorrow and I cannot wait! I’ve been so nervous all week! *thankfully I’m not bleeding so that’s reassuring* • I really didn’t want to be so honest about my silliness, but i believe in sharing all of our truths with each other. The good, bad, and ugly. Otherwise how can we help each other prevent similar mistakes from happening. So, Im sharing. *While hanging my head in shame! • I hope this is a good reminder for anyone thinking of straying off the recommended path. (Who is probably a nurse since we seem to think we can self diagnose, etc. I feel like us nurses are the WORST CULPRITS of this type of behavior 🤦🏼‍♀️🤣) • I cannot wait to see this baby on the ultrasound tomorrow & hear my progesterone levels are back up!🙏🏻🤰🏼✨ • #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #marriedatfirstsight #baby #pregnancyannouncement #pregnant #preggo #preggers #pregnancy #pregnancydiary #tryingtoconceive #firsttrimester

This little one has an army looking out for him/her.💪🏼✨ #thankYOU #bestfrans • Btw, I’ve kept the link to my tips for trying to conceive blog up just in case it may help you or someone you know. I wish someone had shared this kinda advice with me 18 mo ago when we first began trying to make a baby. …I’m praying these tips will help even just ONE woman become pregnant. That’d make it worth it for sure!☺️ If you’re a mama TTC, I’m sending you lots of love & sticky baby dust. Just remember, the storm can’t last forever. 🙏🏻☀️🌈 👶🏼✨ • • • #ttc #tryingtoconceive #ttccommunity #ttcaftermiscarriage #tryingtoconceive #rainbowbaby #doublerainbow #baby #marriedatfirstsight #preggo #prego #preggers #pregnancyjourney #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnancydiary #firsttrimester #fertilityjourney #fertilitysupport #bump #pregnancylife
