Jacqueline Jossa has described the first four months of her second pregnancy as “horrendous”.
The former EastEnders actress – who has three-year-old daughter Ella – is currently around six months pregnant with her second baby with husband Dan Osborne and was shocked her body reacted differently this time around.
Jacqueline, 25, admitted this pregnancy has been far from easy, telling Closer: “The first 16 weeks were horrendous.”
“I was being sick almost every morning!”
Going into detail about how it felt being pregnant with Ella, she said she didn’t feel a change in her body for six months.
“With Ella – apart from not having periods – I wouldn’t have known I was pregnant until I was about six months along.
“I didn’t have a bump and didn’t feel any different.”

She went on: “This time was hard, but luckily it stopped at 16 weeks and since then I’ve felt great!”
It’s not the first time Jacqueline has expressed her woes online, and Jacqueline has shared her pregnancy journey with fans on YouTube.”

In a candid post, she recently praised pregnant women who are forced to go to work in London and travel on the train following a recent trip to the capital.
She said: “I’m just running myself a bath because I’ve been walking up London all day … I was aching!
“I don’t know how you do it, so props to ya’ll for travelling to London and back.”
However, she’s supported by her husband, who makes her feel beautiful when she’s pregnant. She continued: “Daniel always makes me feel really confident and I embrace my pregnancy body – bumps are really cute.”
And Jacqueline has previously told OK! magazine she doesn’t mind if her baby is a boy or a girl, saying: “I don’t deal very well with surprises so it would be better for me to find out, but at the same time I think it would be nice to wait.
“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.”
