Chemical Pregnancy and Jamie Otis’ Miscarriages

Although the exact cause of a chemical pregnancy is uncertain. According to Healthline, a chemical pregnancy is an early pregnancy loss that happens shortly after implantation of the fertilized egg.

This is not the first miscarriage for the reality star. Otis was pregnant with her first child, a boy named Jonathan that she lost during her fourth month of pregnancy.

Otis posted a picture of her positive pregnancy test on Friday, August 31. Although the positive line was faint she was holding out hope and asked her followers for their prayers.

โ€œIf I stare long enough I see the faintest โ€˜+โ€™ sign,โ€ she wrote, asking followers to send โ€œbaby dust, prayers & positivityโ€ her way.

The reality star who met her husband Doug Hehner on season one of Married at First Sight told her fans that she and Hehner are not going to let this discourage them for trying again. Otis is committed to giving her daughter a sibling.

โ€œI donโ€™t know why some people have it seemingly SO easy to get preggers & carry their babies to term and others struggle? What i do know is that i am so, so thankful for this little girl and her daddy right here,โ€ she wrote of the photo showing her daughter fast asleep in her arms. โ€œItโ€™s like she knew mommy was in so much pain bc she just wanted to be held and snuggled all night long.โ€

โ€œWe have to wait a cycle before trying again, but I am on a mission to make Gracie a big sis now,โ€ she added, asking, โ€œhas this happened to anyone else where you go through a loss & then all you want โ€“ the only healing thought โ€“ is to become pregnant with a healthy pregnancy?! This happened to me after our sweet Johnathanย & the same feelings have come back.โ€

Otis ended her post thanking her fans for their endless love and support duringย this difficult time. โ€œI feel like I have a million sisters/friends who i call my โ€˜fansโ€™ right here & I appreciate you, your prayers, your thoughts & words of love for me & my little family more than youโ€™ll ever know!โ€

  1. Oh, Jamie, I am so sorry for your latest loss. I have followed all of y’all from the beginning and feel like a part of your extended families. Didn,’t we have another pregnancy at the end of last season? We never heard the results.
    God always does things for reasons we don’t understand. I lost my husband 5 yrs. ago and I still have anger issues with God over his death. You know all of our prayers are with you. God bless you and Doug and Gracie as you proceed into your next stage. God’s blessing to all

  2. The pregnancy test she is showing in the photo from her Instagram isn’t a positive pregnancy test it’s showing a negative it’s got one solid line in each window if she was pregnancy there would be a plus sign in the bigger windown!
