Jamie Otis couldn't be more excited about her healthy baby and growing baby bump.
Otis, a former The Bachelor bachelorette who tied the knot with her husband Doug Hehner on Married at First Sight's first season, posted a picture of herself 15 weeks into her pregnancy with Baby No. 1.
In the photo, Otis, 30, reveals that her baby is currently "the size of an apple."
"15 weeks! I truly haven't been overly worried with this pregnancy. I think bc it has been completely different than my first I've felt confident this baby will grow safe and sound inside me... I haven't had any spotting, bleeding or clots, so I've felt like I am having a healthier pregnancy this time... I haven't had any cramping either.... at least not until yesterday," Otis captioned the picture.
"I began the slightest cramping & they've lasted two full days now. They're really mild cramps so I'm sure it's nothing (my doc says baby and I are absolutely fine) but for whatever reason I've been really nervous. We lost our angel Johnathan at 17 weeks, 1 day. I just want to get past 17 weeks and feel this baby move."
"I want to know our sweet baby is safe, healthy, and happy growing inside me. Being pregnant is one of the most joyous experiences, but it's also one of the scariest. #growbabygrow #babyhehner #prayingforhealthybaby #marriedlife #pregnant #pregnancy #babybump."
Otis, who found fame when she competed for Ben Flajnik's heart on The Bachelor's sixteenth season, included many emojis of praying hands in her caption.
Otis and Hehner, 33, first announced they're expecting a baby in February 2017. The happy news came just six months after the reality TV stars revealed in July 2016 that Otis had miscarried the couple's first child, Johnathan Edward, when he was four months along into the pregnancy.
"We are PREGNANT!!! Our sweet Baby Hehner is due this August," Otis wrote on Instagram at the time.
Otis discovered she was pregnant again on December 20, 2016, which ironically just so happened to be Johnathan's due date.
"It was this day that we were dreading. Then I take a test and get a confirmed positive," Otis told Us Weekly at the time.
The pair celebrated quietly in their New Jersey home with Otis telling Us, "We just cried and laid in bed crying happy tears and sad tears. It was so bittersweet. We were thinking about Johnathan and the new baby in my belly. It was almost too much to take in all in one day."
Otis and Hehner's little bundle of joy is reportedly expected to arrive on August 24 and the couple had been planning a gender reveal party for Friday, March 10.
