Needing support

Im 8weeks 3days pregnant.
I have been told im an o negative blood group and that i have positive antibodies, im being referref to an antenatal clinic after my 12week scan to be closely monitored as my baby is at a high risk.
I was just wondering if anyone else has been in this situation and how there pregnancy went, im staying positive because theres no point stressing over it.
Thankyou

I am glad you are not stressing, there is nothing to stress about. My sister in law was in a similar situation and her pregnancy was uncomplicated. She gave birth to a healthy baby girl. It's good they know what's going on and that you will be monitored.i wish you all the best!

I am negative blood type as well and also have antibodies.I was scared and looked it up online. Do not do that it will freak you out.They will give you a shot at 28wks and then again 72hrs after delivery. You are going to be fine nothing to worry about. It's more common then you think. Hang in there congrats on your pregnancy.

I am due in a month also high risk but I got the shot at 28wks and had the antibodies test done 4times and all is good.I literally have had no issues and this is my first pregnancy. Yes stop reading when my boyfriend and I read it we freaked out it's the worse thing you can do is look it up online. My obgyn said the same thing and like I said it's more common then you think. You will be closely watched  for a bit and all will be good. staying positive like you are is great and it's good for baby too.
