I had the steroid shots before my son was born-the docs decided to wait the full 48 hours and delivered me exactly 48 hours after the first one, 24 after the second because of pre-e. My son was a 32 weeker and never had to have any help breathing.
I got steroids shots before my son was born but the docs don't think the second had time to take effect. His lungs were very week and he was vented for about a month after birth followed by cpap and low flow. Because I'd already gotten steroids shots, he didn't get them again, instesd he was being given caffine shots. The steroid shots are a lot more effective.
