That's a tough one. I know my doctors won't stop labor after 35 weeks and I see you will be 35 weeks tomorrow. Was it a pain to get the meds? I had to order from a special pharmacy so it took a little while to get.
If I were you at this point(you have one more shot left?) I would think that is fine. Can you ask your doctor aBout it? He may be fine with it.
Era: oops I just re-read your post. I'd call your OB about it.

I'd get the shot, too, if it's recommended. Keep in mind that just because you discontinue the injections, it doesn't mean that labor will start immediately. I was terrified to stop the injections with my first, even though I hated them. I had been receiving them twice a week for 28 weeks, and enjoyed the comfort they brought. The doctor stopped them when I was 33 weeks along, and I went into labor on my own (water broke) at 37w5d. Even with your history, you may stop the injections at 36 weeks and still go to 40 weeks on your own.
Good luck, and merry Christmas!

Thanks ladies for the reply.. It just confusing when two doctors are saying different "stop" dates ;( I really don't want him earlier because I want him to come when he is fully developed i worked so hard to get to this point. I just hate conflicted information. I got my meds and will go with my Ob instead of the er/high risk doc.
