  • How far along are you? its good for babies to stay in as long as possible. they are just trying to make sure your babies will be alright, how could that be a bad thing?

  • If they are stopping it, it means you are less than 36 weeks. Your babies need to stay in there. Do you want sick babies that have to stay in the NICU or do you want healthy babies that get to come home with you?

  • I certainly hope this is a joke. If doctors are trying to stop your labor, it is for a good reason. And you would be wrong and horrible to try and go against it.

  • You really need to keep your babies in as long as possible...you could be 24 weeks along for all I know...and if I am not mistaken babies LUNGS ARE NOT DEVELOPED FULLY until you are at around 36 weeks gestation. If their lungs dont develop fully before they are born it can lead to infections, breathing troubles now, and in the future, sickness, etc. You really should listen to your doctors on this matter becuase they are telling you this to keep you AND your babies safe.

  • I agree with all of the above! Keep them babies cookin until the doctors let your body go into labor. Do NOT try and start it on your own, you could be risking your babies' health. I'm sure it's stressful for you to keep going back into the hospital over and over again, but IT WILL BE WORTH IT if you just wait! I promise.

  • You need to let those babies stay in there as long as possible. It might be frustrating but its important. This is your babies' health. Take a book and some cards and stay there playing cards and reading until it is safe for them to come out.

  • I agree with everyone else. When it comes to preemies you need,to keep them as long as possible. Please for the sake of your babies don't force labor.

  • How far along are you? If they are trying to prevent you from going into labor then it must be because the babies aren't ready yet.
