In brief: Stop working!

The safest way to deliver preterm babies that may or may not survive is to not heed the advice of your maternal-fetal medicine doctor; continuing to work while carrying twins unnecessarily puts your family at risk of having two very preterm babies with possible life-long health problems.
I understand you need the money - but the alternative would cost much more money in the long-term. Stay at home.
