Hi I was wondering if you could answer some questions for me relating to anti k antibodies.
My history goes like this. I had a m/c and had to have a d&c done, then went on to have a successful pregnancy with our now 5 yr old son via cesarian section. The next pregnancy it showed up in my first lot of bloods that I had anti k anitbodies, sadly we lost our daughter at 26 weeks. I have just found out that I am pregnant again and hwave some questions that need answering.
1) Why didnt the anti k show up when I was pregnant with my son?
2) With this pregnancy what sort of monitoring can I expect to have?
3) Now that the Doctors know of my history can I expect a lot more attention for this pregnancy?
4) And I know you are not god... but will I have the same outcome as last time and lose a much wanted baby?
