Yep =) I have two more left! YAY!! lol I don't feel any side effects, actually. The shot hurts a big going in but only because of how long it takes to get the stuff through the needle! It's basically pure oil. I do start getting more contractions the day before and the day of my next shot.

No, but I had my 2nd at 35 weeks and the dr wanted to be safe rather than sorry so he put me on it. Good thing too, because this baby was wanting to come at 32 weeks...I spent a week in the hospital where they gave me different meds to stop labor. I'm now on complete bed rest, still taking the shots, and still contracting just less frequently.
