A HEARTBROKEN Lauren Goodger has tragically opened up about how she can still feel her baby due to her swollen stomach.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star opened up about tragically losing her baby daughter just minutes after she was born.
Opening up in a heartbreaking chat with New magazine, the TV star retold how her "perfect" daughter Lorena passed away after birth.
Lauren, 35, explained that she still "has a bit of a bump" which often has sometimes tricked into thinking her baby girl is "still there".
"I've still got a bit of a bump, this one's not shifting," she explained of her recovering body after the traumatic birth of baby Lorena.
"It sometimes feels like she's still there, it's weird. My body feels like it's unsettled, like it's missing a newborn."

Elsewhere, Lauren revealed how her umbilical cord is thought to have been knotted twice in a "rare" turn of events.
Knots in the cord can restrict blood flow and oxygen to the baby, and put them at risk of serious harm or in severe cases, stillbirth.
Lauren continued: "No one knew about the knots in the cord, all we've been told is that it's very uncommon to have two knots.
"I was a low-risk pregnancy. There was no sign of any problems. A few hours before she was born, she was going to be absolutely fine, that's what is so heartbreaking."

It comes after Lauren opened up in an exclusive chat with The Sun about how her baby daughter Lorena looked like she was "sleeping" when she died shortly after her birth.
“Lorena looked like she was sleeping. I thought she would wake up," the heartbroken mum explained.
Lauren is waiting on the results of an autopsy to find out exactly why the tot, who was born weighing 9lbs, passed away.
It is believed her oxygen may have been restricted however Lauren says she cannot rest until she has answers.
“They think her oxygen may have been restricted because she had two knots in her cord but normally babies can still get enough oxygen despite this.”
Lauren had a happy and healthy pregnancy but was rushed to hospital on July 8 when her midwife, who helped delivered her first daughter Larose, could not find a heartbeat.
She gave birth to Lorena in The Queens Hospital in Romford but sadly she could not be saved.
“Charlie was in pieces, he was screaming: ‘Please save my baby'," Lauren added. "I was in shock. My midwife was with me and she said, ‘She will be fine.’ I thought she would be alright.”
