Answer: Do not worry. Your doctor will induce a labour within 7days of starting the steroid course for you. These medications lower the risk of miscarriages or any vaginal abnormality that can hamper childbirth at 35weeks. You will be given steroidal injections most common is betamethasone. So in 24hrs gap you will be injected twice. And you will deliver within a week. This medication reduces late miscarriage and you can expect your child to be under medical supervision such as NICU for a week or more. What's the current baby weight in your sonography if it is somewhere 1.5kgs than its ok. You must consult your Dr about specific pregnancy risk such as membrane disease, or your baby has undeveloped lungs before the treatment us started. Rest assured it is performed but you must ask what shall be the reason its performed on you. Hope it helps! Take care

Answer: Hello! Ideally it would be better for you to wait for 6 months before you plan for the baby. To avoid such situation, you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Take a balanced healthy diet, go for exercise, drink plenty of water and take proper rest. If you are over weight then you should first focus on loosing weight and then only it is advisable to go for a pregnancy. Hope their helps Take care
