Hough had been taken to the hospital by ambulance after she revealed she had been feeling severe stomach pains during Dancing with the Stars' Tuesday night results show.
"She was experiencing slight stomach pains all day that increased and the doctors thought it was best to have them checked out," Hough's publicist Cindy Guagenti told The Associated Press after the show. "But she didn't collapse."
"With stomach problems, you never know what's going on. It could've been appendicitis. It turned out just to be a bad stomach," Hough wrote on her blog this morning. "As my mom said, better safe than sorry."
Hough had seemed fine during the results show broadcast, during which she had performed an encore performance of her Monday night jitterbug with celebrity partner Hannah Montana actor Cody Linley.
In addition, Hough -- who recently released her debut country album -- had also twice sung her "My Hallelujah Song" single as part of a choreographed pre-show performance that will air on Dancing with the Stars later this season.
However according to Hough, she had kept the fact that she hadn't been feeling well all day from everyone.
"I didn't feel well the whole day. But I'm a trooper. I didn't tell anyone. I didn't want to be dramatic about things," Hough wrote on her blog. "Actually, I was all right while I taped a performance of 'My Hallelujah Song' and I was not too bad as I went in to transform myself into Lucy [to perform our encore]. But then, oh boy."
"I don't know if anyone could see my face during the show, but I was trying so hard to put a smile on. I was in so much pain. Afterward, I went backstage and curled up in a ball. That's when everyone said I needed to go to the hospital," she continued. "It's weird how I danced through it, how when you have to do something you forget about not feeling well or any kind of pain. But the minute I stopped, it hit me."
Dancing with the Stars' producers apparently attempted to film the incident for broadcast on next week's show, however Hough objected.
"The DWTS crew was trying to film it, but I was like seriously guys, don't film it, please. I didn't break my foot," Hough wrote.
However according to Hough, there was a silver lining to the incident.
"Before I left the hospital, which was pretty late, I asked the doctor if I could have a note to sleep in," wrote Hough. "I was supposed to do the group dance rehearsal today, but I'm going to go back to bed and relax and hopefully take it easy today... as for next week, Cody and I got the Samba. I'm excited. I think Cody's up to it."
