Mariah Carey, who is expecting twins with her husband Nick Cannon, was rushed to a hospital over the weekend after having contractions, but it turned out to be a false alarm.

Carey tweeted that doctors allowed her to go home after they "got it under control."

She also wrote that she has a few more weeks to go.

Meantime, Cannon tweeted, "I am probably going to faint in the delivery room."
