Steroid question!

Posted by on Aug. 7, 2010 at 4:09 PM

Im trying to look it up on google, but some websites are blocked here at the hospital! I was hoping someone here might know!

We've gotten 2 rounds of steroids for Dylan's lungs (and we will get a "rescue steroid" when the Pre E turns to HELLP and we need to deliver). What Im wondering is, will the steroid only effect his lungs? Or will it help with his weight at all? Will I possibly notice a growth in my belly size before delivery due to the steroids?

I wanted to research all this stuff more before I actually GOT here! Wasnt really expecting to be here so soon! LOL Thank you girls for whatever info you have or can find!

I had steroids at 29 weeks when she weighed almost 2 lbs. She now weighs around 6 lbs...so yea she def put on weight, but her lungs are mature now so it's all for the better.
