Mariah had diabetes while pregnant

MARIAH Carey developed gestational diabetes when she was pregnant.

The 'Obsessed' singer has revealed she had a difficult pregnancy with her six-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe and suffered from different medical conditions which affected her health.

She told 'Access Hollywood': "I was in a lot of pain because of the fact that they're twins ... I had a rough one ... I just want people to be prepared that it can happen where you go through a rough time when you're pregnant.

"I did develop gestational diabetes. I'm good with that now, I'm OK, but you just have to be careful, nutritionally."

Although she loves being a mother, Mariah doesn't think she and her husband Nick Cannon will have any more children because of how tough her pregnancy was.

She added: "If God chooses to do that to me, then we'll, that would happen, other than that, I don't think we would try for that ever again. I really don't know if I can make it through after what I went through, it was really tough."

Earlier this week, the 42-year-old star revealed she was ordered to bed rest by her doctor because of her medical issues - which included oedema, which is fluid under the skin - during her final two trimesters.

She said: "I had a really tough pregnancy. I was supposed to be on bed rest, but it was so bad then even bed hurt. I learned a lot being pregnant, watching my body change."

Since giving birth, Mariah has lost 70lbs through exercise and sticking to the Jenny Craig diet plan.
