Antibodies

I am 10 weeks and 2 days pregnant, I'm pregnant with my 3rd child. I just found out that I have to go see a specialist about the high levels of antibodies in my blood. Has anyone else ever had to go though this. Some people are telling me that this can be very dangerous for the baby and me?!!!!!!!

They will do blood work often to make sure the levels are either staying the same, or dropping.
I have them as well. Not sure what the numbers are but they've stayed the same from 6wks and on and I'm almost 20wks. I've had 2 bleeds so far and baby boy is perfect in there.
Its hard not to stress but as long as Dr does his job of monitoring your levels on at least a monthly basis (that's what I do) then you and baby should be fine :)
