London: Pop diva Mariah Carey says she feared she would never be able to walk again properly after her difficult pregnancy.

The 41-year-old says it was a real struggle keeping her twins in as she approached the 30-week mark of her pregnancy and it took all of her willpower to rest up and fight going into a dangerous early labour, reported Contactmusic.

"I was afraid I wasn`t going to be able to walk properly again. It was a huge strain. I would sit and then someone would have to help me up. I couldn`t go even to the loo by myself. It was just like, `What are we doing? Are we going to the hospital? No, I`m gonna stick it out, I`m gonna keep taking this medicine to keep these babies in... I made it to 35 weeks and then the doctor said it wasn`t safe anymore," Carey said.

The singer`s twins Moroccan and Monroe were born via a Caesarean section in April.
