Married at First Sight USA’s Jamie Otis has penned an emotional blog post following the sad news she had a miscarriage.
Otis and her husband Doug Hehner met on the controversial reality TV show - which has a large following in Australia on Foxtel's Lifestyle YOU channel.
The blog post comes after Hehner shared their news on social media on Wednesday.
‘My heart is so heavy. There are no words to express the pain and sorrow associated with losing our baby Hehner,’ wrote Otis.
Otis says she was planning a gender reveal party when they got the news.
'Doug, my husband, and I were very optimistic going into this doctor’s appointment. Like I said, I was literally on Facebook planning our gender reveal party,’ she wrote. ‘Until the doctor flat out said, "The prognosis is very poor and there is nothing you can do to help it. You have very little amniotic fluid for the baby." I’m a nurse so I know how important amniotic fluid is for growth and development, but I just couldn’t believe my ears.'
'How could the prognosis be so "poor" when I had just seen our baby’s feet kicking and his little body bouncing around in my belly less than a week before,’ she continued. 'We decided I would go on bed rest, drink lots of coconut water and even more regular spring water and fight for our baby.'
The reality star shared her last ultrasound on Instagram, saying, 'I was always so excited for Doctor visits because it meant I could see my little baby bouncing inside me.
‘This was one of our last visits. I wrote a blog about losing our baby (link in bio above). My heart hurts so bad, but I cannot tell you how much it means to me to see all the love & support from you all. Thank you all so much.’
