General & Family Physician 's  Response
USFDA classifies Wysolone (Glucocorticoid) as Pregnancy Category C DRUG: Either studies in animals have revealed adverse effects on the foetus (teratogenic or embryocidal or other) and there are no controlled studies in women or studies in women and animals are not available. Drugs should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the foetus.

So, your SLE status decides the continuation or not. For that, the same physician who has been following your SLE treatment is the best option to seek further help.

General & Family Physician Dr. Sujeet N Charugulla's  Response
necrotizing enterocolitis, retarded Intrauterine growth, severe lung disease are some ADR's of antenatal steroids that may occur in the foetus.
Whether you like it or not - I am afraid no doctor will advise you over the net like this without assessing you clinically whether your benefits outweigh the risks or not for the correct usage.
The use of corticosteroids in ante and postnatal pregnancy is such a delicate and controversial issue with doctors, even today.
