    About 1/1000 people will develop a serious eye infection. The day after the injection your eye should be comfortable, there should be very little pain. If your eye starts to get red, with misty vision ( there may be no pain ), perhaps 2-5 days after the injection, you should suspect an infection and attend your eye department urgently.

    I found out at 17 weeks that i had a huge aneurysm in my heart and if I stayed pregnant, the baby would be premature. We kept the baby and so at 24 weeks they gave me the betamethasone in case I had to have the baby before 28 weeks. At 27 weeks I went into the hospital for monitoring so at 28 weeks I got a booster of the shots. at 28 weeks 2 days they discovered that my aorta had a tear in it, so I had an emergency csection (and heart surgery at the same time). My son is now 13 days old and was only briefly on a ventilator (until they realized he was out performing it). So he's been breathing on his own since birth. I'd say go for the shots.
