Jamie Otis celebrated her pregnancy with a nude maternity photo, baring her body to fans on social media. The Married at First Sight alum is ready to give birth to her second child with husband, Doug Hehner, any day now.
As her pregnancy comes to an end and Jamie prepares to welcome her son into the world, she reflects back on her journey to becoming a mother again.
Baring in all in raw nude maternity photo
Over the weekend, Jamie shared a series of raw and gorgeous photos highlighting her growing baby bump. In a lengthy message, she let fans know how she felt as she entered the final weeks of pregnancy.
“I promised God I wouldn’t complain about any pregnancy pains if he’d just let me keep this baby. Monday, I am 39 weeks pregnant!!! I won’t complain about the waddle, the Hemorrhoids, the fatigue, and back pains. God’s kept his promise, and I’m keeping mine!” she expressed in part of her caption.
Jamie went on to explain that her only regret was that she had put more effort into bonding with her baby boy throughout the pregnancy. Previously, she suffered two miscarriages, causing Jamie to metaphorically hold her breath after learning she was expecting again.
The previous fertility issues made it challenging for Jamie to enjoy her pregnancy. Each milestone gave her more confidence that. she would carry her son to term.
Now Jamie is ready to meet her son, Hayes, who will join big sister Henley.
“I can’t wait to smell his newborn scent & stare at the wonder of his tiny toes. I am so excited to have a home birth and have the opportunity to have the calmness of my own home so that I can bond and connect on a deeper level with our baby Hayes,” she said as she ended the caption included with her nude maternity photoshoot, seen here.
