I'm not a doctor, but I can tell you being rh negative while you are pregnant is nothing to be nervous about as long as your doctor knows and takes the appropriate measures.  You will most likely need a shot of something called Rhogam in this pregnancy and in your future pregnancies.  If the father of your baby is also rh negative factor, you do not need to have this Rhogam shot, but if the blood rh factor of your partner is positive or unknown, being rh negative just means you will need to get the shots to make sure the rh negative in your blood doesn't harm the baby.

Best of luck to you and your new family-to-be!
