Re: [B]Lungs maturing[/B]
My pragnancy is completed 32 weeks on 3/5/2006 counted from last period date on 23.10.2005. Now my doctor told me that lungs of the baby is immatured which will be matured after the end of 36 weeks. As there is some problem like irregular movement of the baby, abdominal pain, conttraction of uretus etc, my doctor suspecting it is a tedency of immature delivery. But it is risk for survival of the baby after birth as lungs is not matured. So my doctor with a view to maturing the baby by way of usinng medicine so that lungs is matured before it's actual maturing stage of 36 weeks has prescribed me to take Betnesol injection 3 dose @ 8 mg each dose after every 8 hours and also advised me to test the blood sugar after one day of the last dose.
I want to know from exprienced well wisher whether my doctor
has taken right decision for pushing injection for maturing
the lungs of the baby.
Is Betnesol injection - a steriod type injection ?
Whether this type of injection would be harmful for baby's
future after birth.
Is it right that lungs starts maturing after 32 weeks from date of
last period ( in case of me last period was 23.10.2006).
