Jamie Otis and her husband, Doug Hehner, recently encountered another disappointment amid their difficult pregnancy journey, and the pair opened up about it online.

The Married at First Sight stars have been very vocal about their desire to grow their family and have been trying for over two years without success.

Most recently, Jamie noticed several signs that led her to believe she could be pregnant, and after sharing that tidbit with her followers, she recently posted an update with some bad news.

In the video, Doug and Jamie noted that they were “not pregnant, unfortunately,” despite having “every sign of being pregnant.”

However, Jamie already has a plan in mind for the new year: get healthy and take a break from everything, including emails and social media, for the entire month of January.

“I wanna try to just chill and relax and, I don’t know, get healthy so that I can support a pregnancy,” shared Jamie.
