ill be keen to watch this! ive had 3 losses, 2 then my son and now another one!
I have an autoimmume prob and have been referred to my local hospital where Professor Quenby has a clinic. she is going to biopsy me for NKc and maybe start me on steriods!
Im afraid to take steroids...whats the risk of cleft palate etc in the baby? I have daily steroid drops for my eyes (the autoimmume prob) and was always warned against taking them when preg.....well sorryi dont have a choice!!
What dose are you girlies on of Prednisolone? til when?
I'm on 25mg orally every day from when I confirm ovulation (temping) until about 11dpo when an early test should be able to tell me whether I'm pregnant. Once pregnancy is confirmed I am to continue until 12 weeks and then gradually wean off.
There is a risk of cleft palate, but Mr S claimed none of his patients have suffered a case
To be honest, to me it's not the worst risk in the world and personally, I would be happy with a baby even with a cleft palate. It is something that can easily be treated in infancy and doesn't majorly worry me. Obviously, everyone has their own idea on what risks they can accept.
