Its my case too..i am O - and my husband A+. If u are negative and you have a second baby who is positive, ur body may try to reject it... so your doc will give u a kind of a vaccine around the 28th week to prevent it from happening.
I'm o- n I've never heard of anything we're suppose to do while pregnant besides the normal stuff
Rhogam shot at 28wks. Another after u deliver and baby will receive one after birth too. They do NOT hurt. Barely even notice, and is typically administered in the hip.
I'm glad I found this out something to check in to with the doctor
Thanks so much! Couldn't remember if it was a shot or whatnot. I can handle a shot lol.
I just had my blood work for it this morning and have to go back tomorrow for my shot, I'm o- and my husband is o+.
I had to have an injection called anti-d .. I had one at 12weeks, one at 28weeks and if babh is positive I have to have another one after birth. It doesnt hurt at all :)
I know for my friend all they had to do was give her a shot once before the baby was born, and than again while she was in labour.
im ab- and i have to do the same thing for any pregnancy no matter what blood type my baby is because its a risk drs arent willing to take.
You'll get a Rhogam shot at 28 weeks and after birth because if your blood mixes with baby's blood your body can attack the baby.
Oops, sorry for the repeat •_•
When I had my second I had to have five of them BC I showed positive for antibodies and 8 weeks nothing to it though as long as u get the shots
If the baby is + you need to get shots or a shot however a reaction won't be present in you until your second baby.
I Have a- Blood Type And I Have To Go For A Rhogam Shot On March 6, I Will Be 28 Weeks. My Fiance Doesnt Remember What His Blood Type Is, So I Need The Shot Just Incase His Is Positive. I Was Told I Get A Shot After Delivery And If The Baby Has A Positive Blood Type, She Will Get A Shot. If Babys Blood Type Is Negative, They Dont Need The Shot.
