It seems like you use Prednisone instead of Dexamethasone. Would you mind sharing your reasons why you prefer the Prednisone over Dexamethasone? The AEB center uses Dexamthasone, but I really do not know why the prefer it over the Prednisone. Thanks and have a great day.

90-95 percent of prednisone is broken down by the placenta , so very little gets to the baby. This is not the case with dexamethasone.
