I already had the steriod shot, I got it at 29 weeks when I was first admitted into the hospital and now im 32 weeks.

You really should have stayed in the hospital...have you no idea how serious pre-eclampsia is? You and your child can die.

They want to keep the baby in the womb as long as possible, but if they need to deliver early, you'll probably need steroid shots to get the baby's lungs to mature quicker, and you need to be monitored consistently.

Go back to the hospital...don't mess around with this kind of thing.
