Pregnant Jacqueline Jossa has revealed she went to hospital last week after worrying she couldn’t feel her baby moving as much as usual.

The former EastEnders star, 25, described it as a “scary” moment but said, thankfully, everything turned out to be okay.

She’s currently 31 weeks pregnant with her second child.

Jacqueline said in her new Jacqueline’s World vlog for YouTube: “I went to the hospital last week just because I wasn’t feeling as much movement.

“I don’t know if you remember me saying in my last vlog that this is a completely pregnancy all together, which is fine, but I just wanted to make sure. I wasn’t feeling the baby move as much as I felt it should have done, and I think it’s always best to check if you don’t know. Go and check it out.

“We did a lot of tests and they did send me for a scan because they said my bump was looking quite small for 30 weeks; I was measuring 26, which was quite scary.

“I didn’t really know what to think, but it turns out everything is okay and I just need to keep an eye on things.

“Everything is going really well and we are looking good.

“I have really bad back pain this week. I had it in the first trimester, and I’m getting it again now, which is about right, I suppose, at 31 weeks. Not long left now.”

Jacqueline said she was speaking out to encourage other pregnant women to always seek advice if they think something is wrong.

“Everything is going really well apart from that scare. I do feel, if you have a doubt in your mind, you should just go. I want to make that really obvious to you.”

Jacqueline and her husband, former TOWIE star Dan Osborne, announced their pregnancy at the start of the year.

They’re already parents to daughter Ella, three, while Dan has a four-year-old son, Teddy, from a previous relationship.

Earlier this week, Jacqueline told Closer magazine that, unlike her pregnancy with Ella, the first 16 weeks this time around had been “horrendous”.

“I was being sick almost every morning,” she said.  “This time was hard but luckily it stopped at 16 weeks and since then I’ve felt great.”

Jacqueline and Dan have found out the baby’s sex, but haven’t made it public.

She previously told OK! magazine: “Neither of us mind if it’s a boy or a girl but for Ella’s sake I think it would be nice for her to have a sister. She calls her dolls her sisters and sometimes it makes me sad she doesn’t have a real one.”

Jacqueline added that she and Dan won’t be having anymore kids, saying: “I think I’m done now.”
