Jacqueline Jossa talks pregnancy scare when she wasn't feeling her baby move
“I wasn’t feeling much movement.”
Actress Jacqueline Jossa has spoken about a scary experience she had 30 weeks into her pregnancy with her second child.
The former EastEnders star spoke candidly about going to the hospital last week after she worried about how little her baby was moving.
Speaking about the experience on her YouTube channel, Jacqueline said she was concerned at how little her baby was moving.
“I went to the hospital last week, just because I wasn’t feeling as much movement,” the expectant mum said in her video.
“It’s a completely different pregnancy [to my first] altogether which is fine, but I wasn’t feeling the baby move perhaps as much as I should have done.
“I think it’s always best to check if you don’t know, you gotta check it out.”
Jacqueline went on to share that her doctors were a little concerned about the size of the baby and sent her for exams to ensure everything was OK.
“They did a number of tests and they did send me for a scan because they said my bump is quite small.
“At 30 weeks I was measuring 26 which is quite scary. I didn’t really know what to think but it turns out everything is OK, I just need to keep an eye on things.
“Everything is going really well and we’re looking good.”
Jacqueline is currently pregnant with her second child with husband, Dan Osborne, after the pair welcomed their first daughter, Ella, back in 2015.
