Pregnant Mariah Carey Hospitalized After Having Contractions

The singer almost welcomed her twins two weeks early -- on her 42nd birthday!

Mariah Carey almost got two very unexpected gifts for her 42nd birthday on Sunday, as the pregnant (with twins!) singer had to take a trip to the hospital after having contractions.

"So #dembabies really wanted 2 celebrate w/us/share the anniversary!" she twittered on March 27. "I started having contractions last night..went 2 the hospital. Finally they said I could come home after they got it under control. but hey almost came on 3/27- happy anniversary in deed!!!"

With the babies due in just two weeks, the singer seems anxious for their arrival. "Soreadyallready!" she posted.

On Monday morning, the mom-to-be took to Twitter again to share her excitement. "My attempt @ festiveness on 327!" Carey wrote, sharing a photo of her bare baby bump, painted with a butterfly design (pictured above). "For ATLITL thank u + I♥U! Comin soon #dembabies! LYMA+thanx 4 making me happy:)"

So it seems Carey can hardly wait to become a parent -- though she may be alone in that sentiment, as her husband Nick Cannon has been pretty vocal about his nervousness.

"I am probably going to faint in the delivery room! I need to man up!" the actor twittered last week. "Or maybe I should say WOMAN UP since they are the ones that have to be the strongest in the whole ordeal! I am in awe of my wife."
