Pregnant Jamie Otis Reveals What’s in Her Hospital Bag

Labor and delivery nurse Jamie Otis could write a book on how to breathe through contractions. But the 31-year-old, who is expecting a baby girl any day, tells Us Weekly she “felt clueless” when it came to packing her hospital bag. That’s why Otis turned to her more than 261,000 Instagram followers. “I asked them to help me since a lot of them are moms,”says the Married at First Sight alum.

It’s a solid list, which means Otis’ husband of three years, Doug Hehner, won’t be racing out to pick up odds and ends after they welcome their daughter Henley Grace. “I was told not to forget about me!” the 31-year-old tells Us. “Thank you, ladies!”

So this is what #9monthspregnant looks like.???????

Otis learned she was pregnant on December 20, 2016 — Johnathan’s due date. “It was this day that were dreading,” Otis told Us at the time. “Then I take a test and get a confirmed positive.” Later that night, Otis presented Hehner with a framed photo. “It was a picture of us,” she revealed. “On the side there was a message from the baby saying, ‘Dear Daddy, my big brother Johnny said he was due to be here with you today, but since he couldn’t be, he sent me instead.”
