I am 28 weeks pregnant with the 3rd baby. I had previous 2 csections. I also had GD during second pregnancy but delivered a healthy baby.
Now, since I am in India, my doctor is suggesting me to take Argipreg( steroids to develop baby's lungs if incase the baby is born premature). I don't have the history of premature delivery. I delivered my first one in 40 weeks and second one in 39 weeks.
Now my question is
1. did anyone use these medications and delivered a healthy full term baby?
2. Is it common in India to schedule csection 10-15 days prior to the expected due date?
3. Do these medications harm the baby in anyway????????
when I asked the doctor , whether its really necessary, the doctor was like, its ok if you don't take, but if you have GD(I'll get the result of GD tomorrow) then you cannot wait till the EDD since there may be intrauterine death.
I am really confused whether I should take the medication or not...Please advice!
