I had in my previous pregnancy 2013.

Now I don't have as we live in a different country than 2013. My current gynecologist wanted to see if it is required this time around.  Couple weeks ago 30th week it would have been nice to have but they don't do it this late in pregnancy.  Instead they gave me steroid shots.
