Taking Predinisone during pregnancy!

I had an allergic reaction a week before I found out that I am pregnant. I had a developed an itchy rash on the back of my hands, on my wrists, stomach, and legs. The physician at the Urgent Care center gave me an steriod shot and prescribed predinisone 10mg. He questioned me about my last period, but he never conducted an urine sample to do a pregnancy test. After taking the meds for a week, I found out that I'm 5 weeks pregnant. It's scary because I know my pregnancy is very early and I don't want any developmental issues going on with my unborn. I have yet to complete my dosages of predinisone and I'm afraid of another flare up because the rash hasn't fully disappeared, it's still in the process of healing and disappearing. Have anyone ever taken predinisone 10mg tablets while pregnant?

Have you asked your ob about it?

I have a blood disorder and one of the treatments for it is prednisone. Steroids are safe during pregnancy. I am 35 weeks and have been on them off and on my whole pregnancy. Check with your ob to see what he or she has to say, but I am sure you and your baby are safe.
