The steroid shots are amazing although they do sting. As far as I know it is safe to have them 48 hours in advance and I would recommend getting both shots. You probably already know the effects it has on your babies lungs helping the mature faster well it also works for the rest of the babies body. If they are suggesting that you get the shots than they probably have really good reason to suspect you were going to go into early labor. They would never give them to someone if it was only a hunch because it will cause the baby to develop super quickly and end up coming early anyway. They are Lifesavers for premature babies and I certainly wouldn't turn them down. My first was premature born at 27 weeks and this baby is going to be born between 33 and 34 due to a ruptured sac.

I got them for my 30 weeker. They actually made my BP go down (I had pre-e) but the docs said it was a steroid high. B was on vent for 4 hours and cpap for a couple weeks. Thankful I got them

Thank you all for the info!
I did get 2, 24 hrs apart, at 28 weeks. We are so happy because I am now 35+2! I have been in the hospital on monitored bed rest for about 3.5 days. My doctor said we have passed the point of needing another round (which was a big concern for me).
I guess my days of being pregnant are numbered, but we are so happy we've made it here. We really thought we were looking at more like 34 weeks...

Had them done at 33 weeks, both butt cheeks.. and she didn't come until 36+4. Stung a little but felt relieved to know her lungs would mature faster if she were to be born early. Healthy as can be!

I had them at 27 weeks with my daughter. To me it feels like a bad cramp in your thigh. My baby girl was threatening to come out (regular contractions) but she managed to stay put and I had her at a healthy 39 weeks in the end.

I had my first lot today, I didn't expect them to sting AFTER second set tomorrow and I'm dreading it. Though I know they're important
