steroid shot and gaining weight?

Anyone out there had the steroid shot for their babies lung development and packed on a few pounds within a few days? I had the steroid shot and I have gained 5 pounds in 3 days. I am rather small to begin with only gaining 20 pounds so far at 33 weeks. Now, I have gained 25. Just curious if there might be a correlation. I see the doctor on monday so I will be asking. Thank you ladies.
