The infants ranging from 2 pounds, five ounces to a very healthy 3 pounds, 4 ounces are listed in serious condition. After carrying the babies a record 31 weeks, doctors took Bobbi off the anti-contraction medication on Monday. But it wasn't until last night that mother and doctors decided the time had come. As each infant was delivered, teams of neo-natalogist rushed the babies to Blank Children's Hospital, which is adjacent to the Iowa Methodist Medical Center.
