In brief: I am assuming...

...That you mean that you are getting Betamethasone shots to help mature your baby's lungs before the baby is born.
If that is the case, yes, that is the way it is done.

In brief: Pretty standard

This has been done now for the past 3 decades I'm aware of.
When something works, they keep doing it.
