Steroid Shots

Postby Bailierae » Fri Dec 20, 2013 9:33 pm

Moms that delivered after 35 weeks did you get the steroid shots for your babies? If so was it because you went in to labor before that? Also, if you delivered after 35 weeks and didn't get the shots how did your babies do and were they admitted to the nicu ?

I delivered at exactly 35 weeks...I had gone to L&D 3 days earlier with contractions and they said they don't give steroid shots after 34 weeks but they did give me an injection to stop the contractions. My water broke at 35w. They were both taken to the NICU. Baby A was on CPAP for 24 hours but Baby B had no breathing issues...after she was taken off CPAP she was fine...then they just had to get the whole suck/swallow thing down and take all of their feedings by bottle for 24 hours. They also had high bili levels so they were under lights for 4-5 days. They were discharged on day 10. Baby A could have been discharged on day 7 but I wanted them together and to come home at the same time. I was discharged on day 4, stayed home that night and then roomed in at the NICU the rest of the time. I couldn't stand to be away from them and was driving back and forth all day anyway.

They wouldn't do shots, or stop labor after 34 weeks. My water broke at 36+2, and my boys were 7lbs each. The hospital policy was to go to the NICU for just observation when born before 37 weeks, so they just went to make sure all was well, but it was very brief.
They were fine.

I went in to pre-term labor at 31 wks and was given a steriod shot. They gave me a shot to stop the contractions and I went on to deliver at 37.4 weeks which was my scheduled c-section date. Both boys came out screaming and were perfectly healthy.

Thanks ladies! My main goal is to make it to 35 weeks but it seems like at that point there is still nicu time so I really want to make it to 37 weeks fingers crossed!
