Jamie Otis and her husband, Doug Hehner have been trying to conceive naturally for almost three years with zero success, so now it’s time to explore other options.
The next step for the Married at First Sight couple is IVF — an option their doctor recently recommended.
However, Jamie wants to try one last thing before going the IVF route.
She got personal in a recent post, as she updated her supporters after a recent doctor’s visit, as they continue to seek answers about their difficult pregnancy journey.
Jamie and Doug are already parents to a five-year-old daughter, Henley Grace, and a three-year-old son, Hendrix.
The couple also have an angel baby Jonathan, who passed away seven years ago, but they continue to keep his memory alive.
MAFS star Jamie Otis is considering IVF after years of failing to get pregnant
Jamie shared a pregnancy update with her 836,000 Instagram followers, and unfortunately, she didn’t have good news. The reality TV star is still not pregnant despite years of trying, but she’s not giving up.
“We’ve been TTC for almost 3 years🤰🏼 We went to the fertility doc and we’re at the point where he recommends IVF,” shared the 37-year-old. “We are SO THANKFUL for the option of IVF, but I genuinely want to know (for myself ) I tried my absolute best before going down that route.”
Jamie revealed that there is still one thing that they haven’t tried yet, and she plans to explore that option before doing IVF.
“One thing we haven’t tried is changing my diet/exercise routine & manifesting while praying for it,” she revealed. “I changed my diet before w both Henley & Hendrix (cut out foods that are known to cause inflammation) and that worked pretty quickly.”
Jamie added that she believes in the “power of prayer,” and that if you “ask and you believe you will receive.💯.”
