I've seen some severely sensitized ladies carry their babies quite a while.  Fetal anemia from destruction of the fetal blood cells is the biggest danger.

You will probably need many ultrasounds and dopplers to measure the baby's blood flow.  Amniocentesis and cordocentesis (getting blood from the umbilical cord for testing) may also have to be done.  Often, the baby will have to receive blood transfusions periodically while in utero.

The prognosis is much worse if the baby develops fetal hydrops as a result of the anemia.  

I hope everything goes well for you.  Please let us know how you do.
