GFI placement

SO I have a double gang outlet in my bathroom.

My question is does the GFI need to be wired directly to the breaker?

So my current setup is (breaker) (Regular Outlet in a bedroom) (GFI bathroom double gang 1 ) (Regular Outlet bathromm double gang 2).

Does that work with a GFI? I am worried I am not suppose to do the regular outlet in between.

Bathrooms must be on there own circuit.
Everything inside that bathroom can be on that circuit, or that circuit can feed all receptacles in all the bathrooms.
This circuit can not feed any receptacles outside the bathroom.
This circuit must be a 20 amp circuit.
