32 weeks pregnant but I look 42 weeks!????????‍♀️ And boy was I WRONG!???? We fly home tomorrow and I’d be lying if I said I’m not scared.???? I wish we went home a couple weeks ago, but we didn’t realize how serious this corona virus is. • I’m not one who can’t admit when I’m wrong. I believe that those who can recognize their faults, apologize, and take action to change are good people. I try not to live in fear.???????? I really believed if I just kept a safe distance & sanitized myself, my family, and everything we touched we’d be fine going out & living as normal as possible.????????‍♀️ • During the last few weeks we obvs went to the beach. We went to the pool (but found a spot 6ft away from the few others who were there). We took Gracie to the playground but made sure to wash our hands really well after. All along I was risking our family and others without even realizing it.???? • I assumed this whole covid 19 thing would kinda just blow over like the seasonal flu, but it’s A LOT more serious than I ever could have imagined.???? • ***I want to send out a sincere apology to YOU bc by me going out to “live as normal as possible” I was risking YOU and YOUR FAMILY.???????? I’m a registered nurse and I should know better. I’m ashamed of myself for this and I’m genuinely sorry.???????? We will not be living so frivolously any longer. • I have gloves & masks for our trip home tomorrow & of course sanitizer…to protect ourselves and to protect *others*from us and our silly choices.???? It’ll be our last trip out for a long, long time. No matter what we “need” we will not be going to the grocery store or any other place for two full weeks once we get home. Our plan is to STAY HOME & STAY SAFE!☺️ • I hope you’re staying safe, too! We will all get through this together. Sending you SO MUCH LOVE & thinking of YOU!????

To go home early or not?!????????‍♀️ Fly or drive????? Ahh, taking all suggestions bc we’ve gone back and forth a zillion times!????????‍♀️ • I’m not one to panic over viruses???? I’ve been hoping the expectations for the corona virus spreading would be like the weather predictions….ya know, when they predict some ginormous nor’easter storm and it turns out to be a little windy and maybe a couple inches of snow.⛄️ • Seems like that isn’t the case with the #coronavirus????????‍♀️ …it’s predicted by scientists and doctors to get even WORSE…and it’s been proven so in Italy already.???? • We’ve been talking about going home early, but we have such a dilemma! The corona virus is worse back home in NJ. Bc of that we would just stay down here in Florida until it calms down BUT I am preggers & my doc/family/all baby stuff is in NJ. • The next thing we’ve been going back and forth on is HOW we are going to get home?! We obvs already have flights set up, but maybe it’s safer to rent a car and drive? • When I saw the doctor for my check up she said it’s faster – and likely safer – to fly.???? That kinda seems crazy to me bc airports are filled with people close together & obvs the same is true ON the plane. ✈️ • I asked if we should wear masks and she told me that the masks should be worn by people with symptoms. (If I was 10 y.o. I’d have said, “Duh!”????) But what I meant was, “would it do us any good to wear them anyway?” She (nicely)rolled her eyes at me and said it wouldn’t do much for us and then wished me luck keeping it on my two year old—she def has a point there!???? • On the bright side, I’m no longer so worried about delivering early.???????? I mean, I still have Braxton Hicks and they can still be pretty intense but so many of you told me you did too all throughout your second/third pregnancies & then delivered at term. Thanks so much for that!???????? I’m a L&D nurse & I know there’s still a chance of delivering early if they turn into real contractions, but it was so reassuring to hear SO MANY of you went through the same & delivered at term – so thanks again for that!☺️ • PS we stayed far, far away from peeps at the pool. We were literally in a corner by ourselves????

Jamie Otis Apologizes For Poor Decision Making and Flying Home During COVID-19 Outbreak

“During the last few weeks we obvs went to the beach,” wrote Otis. “We went to the pool (but found a spot 6ft away from the few others who were there). We took Gracie to the playground but made sure to wash our hands really well after. All along I was risking our family and others without even realizing it.”

Jamie further admitted that she initially assumed that the current situation “would kinda just blow over like the seasonal flu.” The star later issued an apology to her followers. 

“I want to send out a sincere apology to YOU bc by me going out to ‘live as normal as possible’ I was risking YOU and YOUR FAMILY,” she shared. “I’m a registered nurse and I should know better. I’m ashamed of myself for this and I’m genuinely sorry. We will not be living so frivolously any longer.”

#ad THE FIRST VALENTINES DAY GIFT GRACIE’S EVER MADE FOR HER DADDY!???????? Doug loves strawberry milkshakes! Since we are at a rental we didn’t have a blender — or baking sheets???? — so we compromised and made him strawberry milk and I ❤️ U cookies on a pizza pan!???? • Aaand, if you saw my stories you know why the heart looks *significantly* different???????? • Since we had Gracie we’ve been trying to change our eating habits to healthier ones. Instead of chips we grab fresh fruit and we’ve 100% replaced soda with real chocolate/strawberry milk. It’s more nutritious! Gracie will literally push her plate away to eat what’s on mine even though it’s literally the SAME EXACT PLATE.????????‍♀️ #kids ???? • I know chocolate/strawberry milk still has sugar in it, but it also has 8 grams of protein per 8 ounce serving, calcium, 9 essential nutrients, and healthy fats, too! ???????? Not trying to knock on soda pop, but it has ZERO nutritional ingredients. And living on water alone just isn’t realistic.???? • The thing about milk though is that there are SO many different types out there. It used to be just skim, whole, etc. Now there’s organic, grass fed, etc. I went to ‪MilkLife.com‬ bc they explain the difference (and they have a TON of free yummy recipes????). I decided organic milk is best for my family — and if it has DHA in it it’s even better for Gracie for brain development.???? If you want a guide to learn more about the different types of real milk for you and your family def recommend checking out that site!???? • HAPPY VALENTINES/GALENTINES DAY GIRLFRAAAANS!???? We are off to LA this weekend to shoot a special little show for #mafs! We’re reuniting with some of my fav Married At First Fam too!!! Eee! So excited!????♀️ • #lovewhatsreal #valentines #marriedatfirstsight #pregnancycravings #preggers #secondtrimester #cravings ##lovewhatsreal #mommyandme #mommysgirl #toddlerlife #momlife #milkandcookies #snackbreak #eatingfortwo #pregnant #packing #travelvibes #florida #floridagirls #jerseygirls #caligirls #happyvalentinesday

  1. This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited here online on the 22 of MARCH and i saw a marvelous testimony of a woman from United States on the forum about the good works DR BAKABA I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before. No body would have been able to convince me about it not until DR.BAKABA did a marvelous work for me that restored my marriage of 4 years by getting back my husband back i just as i read on the internet I was truly shocked when my husband knelt down pleading for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of words to use to show my appreciation to DR.BAKABA For his a God sent to me and my entire family for divine restoration of my marriage. Contact him now for any kind of help via Email; [email protected] or you add him on whatsApp number +2347063836098 or call HIM, THANKS DR BAKABA i will always tell the world how you bring my family back

  2. I never thought that there will be a miracle on the internet until i came in contact with Priest Babaka, finally i made it with his help, with his spiritual power which was recommended by a lady in baby center he help before, i never believe it was real until i confirm it now because i have tried so many things to make sure i get pregnant but no luck, immediately i contact him. he did some spiritual prayers and send me a medicine which i took, i got pregnant three weeks after, and i now have a son to show. thank you so much priest and i recommend Priest Babaka for everyone out there that is willing to have a child of her own out there. contact him for help too he is real and powerful, i have confirmed it, contact him on email: [email protected] or Facebook at priest.babaka
