I'm pregnant with baby #5. All my other children were born early. This time starting at 16 weeks I will get a shot every week til week 37. Has anyone had this done? Does it hurt? Did it work? Please let me know thanks.

I am getting those shots due to three premature babies and now im 27 weeks and for the first time ever my cervix hasn't started to dialate. Im not sure how its going to end yet but im hopefull. the shots don't hurt that bad and the side effects are little to none for me anyway. Just make sure you put them in the muscle and not right on your bottom and to alternate your sides each week. good luck

Thanks so much! I can deal with the pain as long as I don't have to go threw the early birth and the long hospital stays. Hope yours turns out well also.
