Thank you so much for all of the great info, Lisa. During my initial research pertaining to RPL, I came across Braverman's site. He seems to discourage use of steroids in later pregnancy and says this: "The risk of prednisone increases after 24 weeks when the enzyme that breaks it down and prevents most of it from crossing the placenta to the baby is no longer functioning. But most patients stop their prednisone no later than 14 weeks regardless." My RE did say that if there was an immunity problem later in pregnancy then my body would start attacking the placenta and forming clots, which is why he was suggesting blood thinners.

Anyway, I will definitely check out that webiste that you suggested. Thanks again!
