Jamie Otis and her husband Doug Hehner are expecting their second child together. Jamie and Doug met on Married at First Sight, and Jamie was on a season of The Bachelorette prior to that. The couple’s second baby is a boy, and he’s due to arrive on May 11. Throughout her pregnancy, Jamie has been keeping her followers up-to-date via social media. Jamie previously had two miscarriages and had a hard time getting pregnant this time around. So, her followers are always hoping for positive news.
Fortunately, the baby’s due date is less than a week away, and things are going well. As the due date approaches, Jamie is giving more frequent updates.
Jamie Otis talks about pregnancy weight gain
On her Instagram stories, Jamie talks about her pregnancy weight gain. In this pregnancy, she’s gained 55 pounds. She points out that she still has a week to go too. She says, “I have a week until I’m full term — like, 40 weeks, I mean. So I still have time to go. And I’m like, ‘I don’t know how I got so big?'” Then, she reveals that she’s enjoying ice cream directly from the container while laying in bed.
She says, jokingly,”I mean, this must be a really big baby.” But, then she adds that she’s been eating a lot of ice cream. She says she enjoys ice cream or milk and cookies “every night.”
Jamie Otis doesn’t seem to be bothered by the weight gain, and she seems to be having a healthy pregnancy. She recently shared a couple of nude photos featuring her nearly full term baby bump. In her post, she talks about not complaining during this pregnancy. Due to her previous pregnancy difficulties, she’s very grateful to be having a healthy baby.

I promised God I wouldn’t complain about any pregnancy pains if he’d just let me keep this baby.🙏🏻🤰🏼 Monday I am 39 weeks pregnant!!! I wont complain about the waddle🐧 , the Hemerrhroids😳, the fatigue😴, and back pains🤪 – God’s kept his promise and I’m keeping mine!🙌🏼💗 If there’s one thing I wish I could go back and do differently, I’d put more effort into bonding with @babyboyhehner throughout my whole pregnancy… I’ve held my breath from the moment the fertility specialist said I’m pregnant. I tried my best not to show my fear bc I only wanted to put positive energy out for this sweet baby boy growing in my belly.👶🏼🌈 With each pregnancy milestone I felt more and more confident we wouldn’t lose him, but I never felt “safe” to just let all my guards down…which unfortunately prevented me from truly bonding with him.😔 I’m really hoping to deliver my own son. I want to pull him out and bring him up to my chest and just LOVE on him.🙏🏻 I can’t wait to smell his newborn scent & stare at the wonder of his tiny toes. I am so excited to have a home birth and have the opportunity to have the calmness of my own home so that I can bond and connect on a deeper level with our baby Hayes.🙏🏻🤰🏼👶🏼🌈

Jamie is having a home birth
Due to the coronavirus, Jamie and Doug decided that a home birth is the best choice for them. As a nurse, Jamie understands why it’s important for babies to be born in the hospital. But, due to the coronavirus, she is concerned that she or the baby could get sick. Plus, many hospitals are limiting the number of people in the delivery room. So, the couple is using a midwife and Jamie will give birth at home any day now.
The couple recently revealed the baby’s name in a YouTube video. They’re naming him Hayes Douglas.
So, when do you think Jamie and Doug’s baby boy will arrive? Leave your guesses in the comments below.
