Cortisone and pregnancy

I have been on cortisone for Guillain Barre syndrome for a year now - I was on a dosage of 80mg in the beginning and is now on 30mg and it will be lowered to 20mg soon. What will happen if I get pregnant while being on cortisone? Will this be harmful to the fetus? Will this have any effect on me? I also get Polygam infusion every 2-3 months, will this have any effect on a fetus?

High dose cotisone can interfere with the growth of the fetus. The Polygam should not be a problem.
