  • I did not have shots, but I had to take it in pill form 3x a day, and it was terrible.

    It was for pre-term labor, and it kept my heart racing, whenever I tried to focus on doing something with my hands I would get really shaky, I had a hard time sleeping, I felt like I was on crack.

    The second I hit 36 weeks I stopped taking it against my doctors wishes because I knew my daughter would be safe at 36 weeks to be born. She was born a week after I stopped the pills.

  • I had the shots at the hospitall. I had shakiness and just felt like crap. It only lasted till they released me and I didn't have the shots anymore. I got two within a 24 hr period

  • Isn't that steriod shots?? I had two shots 12hrs apart at the hospital for they thought might be pre-term labor at 32 1/2weeks. I'm now 37 weeks and nothing has happened. I just had slight spotting/bleeding for one day then and another time at 30 1/2 weeks. I also had my heart racing a little and felt my face flushed on and off for two days. I couldn't sleep there really either, its side effects from the shots they said. After the shots the baby was more active and gave me lots of braxton hicks,, lol
