when I make a request to http://localhost/wordpress/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/?_embed&categories=${categoryId}&per_page=${state.perPage}

I get the following result

    id: 3,
    date: '2019-04-20T16:10:00',

      protected: false
    author: 1,
    featured_media: 0,
    comment_status: 'open',
    ping_status: 'open',
    sticky: false,
    template: '',
    format: 'standard',
    meta: [],
    categories: [
    tags: [],
    _links: {
      self: [Array],
      collection: [Array],
      about: [Array],
      author: [Array],
      replies: [Array],
      'version-history': [Array],
      'predecessor-version': [Array],
      'wp:attachment': [Array],
      'wp:term': [Array],
      curies: [Array]
    _embedded: {
      author: [Array],
      'wp:term': [Array]

But as you can see there is no featured_media. Do I have a misunderstanding about featured_media? I made my post with an image like you can see in content.rendered

    Well, I don't think the post actually has a featured image. The one in the content.rendered is an image added using the Image block. You set the featured image via the "Set featured image" link in the "Featured Image" meta box, even when using the block editor. – Sally CJ Apr 25 '19 at 16:12

  • @evgenifotia, I'm glad the comment helped. And just to be clear, this is what I meant, which is for the block editor. :) – Sally CJ Apr 25 '19 at 16:30
