Heartbreaking: Eastenders Lacey Turner blames herself for tragic miscarriages

Lacey Turner made an emotional appearance on This Morning where she opened up about her two miscarriages.

The 30-year-old, who is married to Matt Kay, revealed how she struggled after the tragic events.

She said, ''We’ve been together half our lives so I just thought, you know, get married when I’m 20-something, have a baby and two years later have another baby. Then you get there and you think it doesn’t work like that for everybody.''

She continued, ''We got a positive pregnancy test and we started picking out names, this that and the other. Then we got to seven weeks and we sadly lost it. It was heartbreaking.''

She added, ''My whole world crumbled and I couldn’t understand it. I didn’t know anybody that had been through this. I didn’t understand why I felt so sad about something I’d never met. I thought what did I do? You sort of think, was my steak not cooked properly or did I lift the box? You drive yourself insane about all these things you might have done.'' 

Lacey suffered a miscarriage in 2018 at seven weeks pregnant and 18 months passed as they tried to fall pregnant again.

Lacey went on to say that when she was expecting again that she had got to the point that when she refused to believe it and told Matt not get excited when the pregnancy test was positive.

She got to seven weeks and realised that similar things were happening like before, so she feared that she was having another miscarriage.

She said, ''I just sat on the couch and cried, I thought, “I will go and see the scan man”, I went and it had a heartbeat.’''

She continued, ''I ignored it until I was about ten weeks. Then thought maybe that will work. ‘My family would say it’s OK, but I would say to my mum don’t talk about it. It wasn’t until I got to 20 weeks I thought, “oh!”

She added, ''I thought if Matt and I shared our story we would be able to help another couple. We have been overwhelmed by the messages and people coming out and saying I have been through the same thing.'''

She wish her and Matt all the best with this pregnancy and a safe birth.
