Like Nicole said it's only if you had a negative blood type, even then there is no problem bc the Dr. would know to give you the rhogam shot. Your friend is wrong about same blood type as well. When you have the same blood type you don't have to get the shot at all. It is just most men don't know their type so they give women the shot to be safe if they are negative. They call it RH-.
B+ means you are rh (rhesus) positive. It doesn't cause any issues in the pregnancy because you have the factor. If you don't, you are rhesus negative, ie: B-, and would require rhogam injections at 28w and after birth.
We are planning for baby. My friend told me that u both have same blood group so there will be problem in the pregnancy. So I scared about it.
What is "RH" factor. Is it same as blood group means if I have B+ve blood group then rh is also +ve or it is different.
I have A negative blood and my fella has A positive blood, weve been together 12 years and this is my first pregnancy to make it (i misscarried 6years ago and went on deppo after cos i couldnt handle it happenin again) im 26+6 now and having my anti d injection on the 12th when ill be 28w!
Ive had no probs what so ever this time round, didnt even know i was preg til nearly 19 weeks cos i was still on bc! This little girl is ment to be lol x
No precautions need to be taken before pregnancy. You have a positive blood type so you will not have to get the shots. How far along are you?
Thanks Apeydef...Before pregnenancy what precautions we have to take and when the shots started.
The only time blood type is a problem is when you as the mother have a negative blood type and the father is positive. In this case they give you a shot at around 28 weeks and after birth. Since most men don't know their blood type they give this shot to you anytime you have a negative blood type, unless your husband knows he has a negative blood type also. It does not cause problems in the current pregnancy but if you do not receive the shot and you are negative and he is positive it effects future pregnancies. It could cause you to miscarry any future pregnancies.
