As common as miscarriage may be in the first trimester, it’s hard not to excitedly hope for the best when you realize you’re pregnant — even if you’ve experienced a prior loss already. And while some women may choose to keep their pregnancy news under wraps in the early weeks, others, like reality television star Jamie Otis, opt to share it openly either way. Unfortunately though, that sometimes means having to give some heartbreaking updates: though she recently shared that she was expecting again, according to E! News, Married At First Sight‘s Jamie Otis has suffered another miscarriage.
Otis first revealed that she was expecting a sibling for her 16-month-old daughter, Henley, in an Instagram post in December, when she uploaded an adorable clip of her little girl wearing a Christmas-themed onesie that read, “Santa is promoting me to big sister.” In the post’s caption, Otis explained that she and husband, Doug Hehner, were beyond psyched with the news, but it wasn’t *just* that they were looking forward to giving Henley a sibling. Only a few month earlier, in September, Otis announced that she’d had a very early loss — known as a chemical pregnancy — only two days after posting a faintly-positive pregnancy test on Instagram.
There’s no doubt that having your pregnancy hopes dashed so quickly by a miscarriage is heartbreaking, and, sadly, the chemical pregnancy was also far from being their first loss: in 2016, the couple also lost their son, Johnathan Edward, at 16 weeks.
In a follow-up post to her September miscarriage, Otis wrote, “I don’t know why some people have it seemingly SO easy to get preggers & carry their babies to term and others struggle,” yet it seemed like learning she was pregnant again a few months later at least gave the couple hope. After making the announcement, Otis began sharing pregnancy posts, including bump updates for weeks 8, 9, and 10, as well as an adorable pic of Henley alongside an early ultrasound photo of the baby-to-be.
But in her 10-week bump update, which she posted Thursday, Otis shared that she’d already been having some concerns, including the fact that she’d had some mild bleeding and cramping through weeks 6-8….
