I am going in for steroid they hurt? where do they give them to you on your body? I should have asked my Dr this but of course everything can up AFTER I heard about it....also I have seen people say that they had the shots and then a week or so later they delivered their this common?

Lower back bum type area if I recall correctly. You feel them more after than say a flu shot or something. I am not bothered by shots though. Someone made them out to be horrid to me and they were not so bad in my opinion.

Probably the reason why you heard people have their babies soon after the shots is that they are usually given to women at risk for preterm labour. Often women who are in preterm labour have their labour stalled with the hopes of sneaking in that second shot. My kid stayed in right to the end though!
