I am just finishing off my 7th intralipid session for this pregnancy and am 28 weeks. Most ladies can stop after 12 weeks but he keeps testing my levels and they are still high. Only one more to go. It's been expensive but worth it.
Wishing you all the best with the rest of your pregnancy!
But have seen friends on 50mg and others on 10mg
I also think he prescribes correctly and pred doesn't cross the placenta.
Most people wean off by early in 2nd trimester.
I think its also important to keep in mind, he prescribes so you get a take home baby.
The risk for cleft palette increases from a 1% chance normally to a 2% chance on prednisone which isn't huge so I was ok taking the increased risk. I was on 25mg at most but I have seen people on higher. I was on dexamethasone until 8 weeks (when placenta takes over) then was switched to pred as it doesn't cross placenta the same.
Just what Dr M prescribed. He tests you and then does a custom plan for you based on individual requirements. I think that's why he is successful. There is no one size fits all.
