I am sorry to hear about your first baby. I do hope that this one will be good for you. Having these problems can put a lot of stress on you. Just try to stay relaxed. I know your baby will be fine.

I had the shots, as I had severe pre-eclampsia, and they didn't trigger labor at all. I had a C-section, as I was 32 weeks and not dilated at all, so the doctors were concerned that they would have to do one even if they induced.

Quoting Catriona:

Hi Samantha,
I don't think the steriod injections will set off labour....they're to develop your babies lungs in the chance that your baby will be born early.
how far along are you?



i am 28 weeks 29 tomorrow its because my baby has a problem that can cause a build up of fluid and set me off into labour this is my second baby first one died of a neonatal intravascular haemorrhage.

Hi,

No the Steroid injection will not set u into labor, i had to have the injection just minutes befor my daughter was even born to mature my daughters lungs, she was born at 29 weeks, when she came out she was breathing on her own and has been doing good ever since.. She is 3 now..

Ive also had the steroid injections with both my pregnancies .They didnt affect labor at all my first one came right on time the second was 3 weeks early but that was due to another problem but she was over 9lbs so it was a good thing lol

I had 4 injections to help with preterm labor and it helped alot, the doctors said if I wouldnt of had the injections Ethan wouldnt be alright. Even though he was born 3 months early it did help.

i kept going into early labor with my son and i got the steroid injections..they are just to develop the baby's lungs incase of premature delivery..it didnt cause labor, my son was actually 4 days late. good luck!!!!

the steriod injections wont cause labor. I had steriod shots when i was pregnant with my 2nd baby. I was just entering my second trimester when that happend.. I ended up going all the way up until 5days before my due date.

I started bleeding at 28 wks with my first baby and was given steriods to develop baby's lungs in case i had to deliver. Ended going 10 days over EDD and baby was absolutley fine.
