positive antibody

I have A- blood and my Dr. sent me to get an antibody screening since we don't know the fathers blood type.he told me to go 2 days before my appt. So I went Monday.when I went to the Dr.my results hadn't come in yet so they had to call the lab and they were still processing it because it came back positive.he said last time it came back negative so he didn't know why it was positive now and I won't know anything until Friday or later.does anyone know what this could mean?Can it harm my baby?I'm 28 weeks

I think they would have to give you an RH incompatibility shot

Maybe that'll help you out... Good luck!

Yes, you will have to go in regularly for an RH shot.

Mine was positive n I had a shot at 29 weeks n have to have another one after I give birth. Its just so your immune system doesn't attack babies if his blood type is positive n yours is negative. But baby will be fine. The first shot needs to be given between 28-32 weeks. That's what my doc said anyway.
