Antibodies during pregnancy

I am 16wks pregnant with my 2nd child, and I have been told that I have anti-M antibodies. I am to see a perinatologist. I have always had normal pap smears, my first pregnancy was perfect with a C-section. I have not had a miscarriage. My 11wks ultrasound was fine and my child measured perfectly. I have not had any bleeding, cramping, or morning sickness. Can anti-M antibodies hurt my unborn child? If so, how? (I am A-positive, and I am a 29-year-old Black female.)

Your anti-M is probably being stimulated by your pregnancy, please asked if it is at 37C or IgG.  If at IgG it crosses over the placenta.  Your Doc. may requested it to be titered, but you will be fine and the baby will be fine. It rarley causes Hemolytic disease of the newborn.  I hope that helps.
