Avatar f tn The doctor will let you know if you're rh negative. Just because you have negative blood, doesn't necessarily mean you are rh negative. But, if you are, you will get the shot. And after you have your baby, if he or she is a different blood type than you are, you will get another shot.
Avatar f tn A disadvantage would be your body rejecting the baby because it has a different blood type. As far as I know they can't test babies blood till birth, and if it has the same blood as you then you won't need the shot, but if it is you will. Incase yours and babies blood mixed.
1230912 tn?1273496370 ) So I guess my question is how many of you on the board have RH negative blood? Does being RH negative with MS have any cause/effect on the situation? Thank you all knowledgeable ones!
Avatar n tn For example B- blood type versus B+ blood type. If you have a negative blood type and your baby could have a positive blood type (from the father) you need these shots to prevent your body from creating anti bodies that will attack your your baby. Most people are a positive blood type and don't need the shot which is why you may not have heard of it. Your early on pregnancy blood work tells your doctor if you need the shots or not.
552853 tn?1278409503 we found out that my husband is also negative blood type..so really we dint need the shot...as long as you guys are both neg. you are fine! its not a big deal like they make it seem.
Avatar f tn Everyone is either rh- or rh+. When a rh- mother & rh+ baby blood mesh.... if that was your case your ob wouldve told u after a blood test and taken precaution. If your tired or feel drained, its apart of pregnancy, or your iron levels may be low. What are you getting tommorow?
669618 tn?1289406848 I am RH- all it means is that you have a negative blood type. All it is, is a small needle given in your bum (it doesn't hurt at all cause its into fat) It is given to all females with RH- blood (you really only need it if the father is RH+ but they like to be safe). It's like an immunization. It introduces a small bit of RH+ into your system so that your body won't attack it.
Avatar f tn I know of a girl who had a successful pregnancy even though she had antibodies against the + factor. Baby had to have transfusions in the womb and was born early but healthy...it can be done!
1352892 tn?1338221505 ( ive had 2 miscarriages but this was in mexico so i was not vaccinated so no this baby also might not make it or be born very sick
1400499 tn?1320413893 RH Negative Disease...I am RH Negative, my titer is low (1-4) and I have 2 children, sensitized with the 2nd, recent miscarriage in 2009, December. Will I need In Vitro if baby daddy is negative...will I have problems no matter what? I want more children, I am 36.
Avatar f tn don't feel bad I was informed yesterday at my doctor's appt that I have to get the shot because im O-, but he also told me that at birth theyll check the baby's blood type and they only give u another if the baby has a positive blood type.
795248 tn?1250690216 My blood type is A- and my husband is O+. My question is since I have a rh- blood type can that cause any problems with my fertility? I have had alot of tests done and they all are normal. I ovulate on my own and have a 26 to 28 day cycle, and progesterone level is great(cd 21 prog was 35). I have also had a LAP and tubes flushed and my Docs can find nothing wrong? My Docs have never mentioned anything about my A- blood type so I was just wondering. Thanks for your help!!!!!
Avatar f tn This pregnancy I had noninvasive rh testing done at 10 weeks though so I knew the baby has a positive blood type. If your in the U.S. ask your dr. About it! All they do is take a vial of blood and send it to a lab where they are able to separate out the fetal dna in your blood stream, they can tell you the rh factor and the gender ans its 99% accurate. Best test I ever paid for.
Avatar f tn I have been told that I am rh negative. I have no clue what that means. I also have been told that it can affect my pregnancy but not how or what to look for to let my doctor know if I am having the rh negative problems. If anyone has a clue let me in on please Lol.
Avatar f tn I just had my first baby on thursday & im rh negative luckily she got my blood type. My doc told me its mostly to protect your future pregnancies n its not a big deal with ur first.
Avatar f tn I'm blood type B negative. I was just curious how common the rh negative factor was. Anyone on here rh negative as well?
Avatar f tn My blood type is O negative and my husband is A positive I've heard that if you are an rh negative blood type it can cause problems when you are trying to get pregnant. Is this true and is there anything I can do about it?
Avatar n tn I have a question, I'm Rh negative. I just lost my 3rd pregnancy, 1984 I had an abortion, and they gave a me shoot after it. Last year I had a miscarriage and they didn't give me anything after. August 1 I miscarriage by Prostin termination, no heartbeat at almost 9 wks, after they did the procedure they gave me a protective injection of RhoGAM or MICRGram Rho(D) Immune Globulin (Human) Ultra-filtered. My question is can I get pregnant againt?
1913775 tn?1322263599 I went to the doctors today and found out that my blood type is rh negative .. i am 28 weeks pregnant so they gave me this shot rhogam.. Everything has been going fine im just really scared and nervous as to whats.going to.happen now ? anyone go through.this ?
Avatar f tn Anyone else on here that is Rh negative? Have you or are you getting the shot? Are you worried about having a second child if your significant other it's Rh positive? I'm so thankful that it doesn't effect your first born, but I don't know if I could deal with the stress of what could happen to my child if I got pregnant again. Just reading about it online how you're child could have brain damage or be a still born terrifies me.
Avatar n tn I am 19 weeks going on 20 very soon. I was recently told that I am RH negative was wondering if anyone else is also RH negative & how did everything work out for u?
Avatar n tn My mother is 64 years old. Her mother was Rh negative. My aunt, the fir born had no problems during birht. My mother, the second born did, but continued to live. She was born in the 1940's, prior to any treatment such as Rhogam was available. She has always had heart murmur problems & anemia. Since 1994, she has had blood clots and 3 different pulmonary embolisms. She has been on Coumadin therapy now for the last 14 years.
Avatar f tn So I went for my glucose test yesterday, and they said I was rH negative. I'm b negative, the father of my child is o positive. I have to go next week for a rhogam shot :( is this something that I need to really worry about or is it just something that happens and this shot will "make it all better"?
Avatar f tn My blood type is Rh- and I can't remember when I need to get the RhoGam shot. Anyone know?
Avatar f tn You have a blood type different from your baby. Due to this, there is a small chance your body could send signals to your uterus that your baby is a foreign object that needs to be expelled. Your doctor's will give you a shot to solve this problem and you and the baby will be fine.
