Former Bachelor star Jamie Otis and her husband Doug Hehner are trying to move forward after suffering another devastating miscarriage.
The Married at First Sight couple recently revealed on Instagram that they lost their baby, and it’s no doubt been a difficult few days.
“I think the worst of it is finally over. We left the doctor’s office around 1:30 yesterday with the medicine in. (The doc places it at your cervix and then you have to lie down for 15-30 min to make sure your body absorbs it all.),” she wrote on Instagram.
“I was wondering when and if the medication would work since I was further along so I knew it wasn’t guaranteed to work. But I really don’t want to have to have a D&C.”
She continued, “We went to my in laws to pick up @henleygracehehner and when we came home I had mild cramps but nothing abnormal really.”
“Around 7pm I began getting the most sharp, excruciating pains all throughout my belly and my back. I’ll spare you the details of what it was like when I went to the bathroom,” she said.
Despite suffering from a great deal of pain, emotionally and physically, Jamie was comforted by Doug and their daughter Henley Grace.
“All night long I was curled up in fetal position with heating pads on my back and belly. Gracie slept angelically through the night.”
She continued, “Almost like she knew mama and dada were sad and in pain and needed a night. I don’t know what I did to deserve such a loving, kind, thoughtful man but I am so, so thankful for you, @doughehner.”
This miscarriage has been emotionally draining for the couple, and it’s unfortunately not the first one they’ve gone through together.
Jamie miscarried their son Johnathan over two years ago.
“We’re trying our best to stay positive. We’ve made it through this before – RIP our sweet angel baby, Johnathan – and we will make it through this too.”
She continued, “I guess our little Johnny wanted a little.”
We are thinking of this lovely little family during this terrible time!
