EastEnders’ Lacey Turner tears up as she discusses two devastating miscarriages before getting pregnant
LACEY Turner teared up as she discussed losing two babies before finally getting pregnant.
The 30-year-old is currently five months pregnant with her first child with husband Matt Kay but feared she would never be able to have a baby.
The actress, who plays Stacey on EastEnders, opened up about her difficult journey on today’s This Morning, describing it as “hearbreaking”.
She told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: “Matt and I have been together half our lives. I thought we would get married and then have a baby, and then have another baby. But it doesn’t work like that.
“A month after the wedding, we got pregnant. We couldn’t believe it, you start thinking about names and then we got to seven weeks and we sadly lost it.
“It was heart-breaking. My whole world crumbled. I didn’t know anyone who had been through this. I didn’t understand why I felt like this about someone I’ve not met. You drive yourself insane wondering if you have done something wrong.”
It wasn’t long until Stacey got pregnant again but then, again at seven weeks, she tragically lost her baby again.
She continued: “We were really nervous about trying again and we tried and tried. 18 months had gone by and still nothing. You get to the point where you think this is not going to happen for us.”
Eventually she did fall pregnant again and at seven weeks she started bleeding.
This time she knew the signs and went to the doctor and was told her progestin had dropped, so was given some progestin pessaries, which she believes saved her child.
She added: “Matt and I decided if we shared our story we might be able to help others.”
