Yep - if it's the steroid injections, they'll just give the baby a boost in case you deliver early.

That BP is amazing!

Are you talking about steroid injections, Karina? If so, we see many of posters getting steroid injections for baby's lungs as a precautionary measure, especially with a history of PE or early deliveries. To my knowledge (from what I remember having read before here), there aren't any risks to the baby with the injections. If you are concerned, I'd certainly ask the doctor to explain the reason behind it a little more in depth. If you want, you could use the search feature at the top of the page - type in steroid injections; it should pull up plenty of posts from folks who've had them before. HTH!

[For what it's worth, if I'd been offered them during my last pregnancy, I would've accepted them.]

I know that in my next pregnancy I will be getting the steroid injections around the time that my son was delivered, just in case. My MFM said there is not really a negative but they can really be beneficial to the baby if early delivery would be needed.

I haven't been in that particular situation and don't know the potential risks, but I think your doctor wouldn't be recommending it if he didn't think the benefits outweighed the risks given your particular situation. I personally would accept them if offered (and would have in my last pregnancy).

Hi girls,
I know its been long but to update you I am 31 weeks pregnant, the baby looks great,
he weighs 4 pounds and the doc. says he's growing wonderfully. Here's the question:
Where I live in the D.R. there are no MFM's so I am being treated by my ob. My pressures have been 100/60- 90/60 so they've been pretty good. Today I went to my appt. and he told prescribed hormone injections for the babys lungs in case something goes wrong. I am not sure if I should take them, what do you think I should do? Has someone had them just in case? Please help? I really appreciate all your opinions :-}
