Britney's pregnancy scare
13:30 27 July 2006
Britney Spears has been left terrified after a harrowing pregnancy scare.
The 'Toxic' singer, who is seven months pregnant, went into false labour on July 15 and was rushed to hospital.
A friend told America's In Touch Weekly magazine: "Britney started cramping. She had a real scare."
She has now been released from hospital but has been warned by doctors that she may have to spend the last month of the pregnancy in bed and must improve her diet.
Since conceiving a second time, the 24-year-old singer - who already has a son, Sean Preston, from her marriage to Kevin Federlne - has been craving junk food, including fattening Cheetos crisps.
But after indulging in unhealthy snacks during her first two trimesters, she has now hired a nutritionist.
The friend added: "She wasn't eating enough vegetables.
"But Britney is now determined to enjoy the rest of her pregnancy and stay healthy after she gives birth."
It is not the first time Britney and Kevin have been faced with a pregnancy scare.
When the pop star was pregnant with Sean Preston she feared she had suffered a miscarriage after four months.
