Rh blood rare

Common Questions and Answers about Rh blood rare


Avatar f tn I am rh- as well. 9 weeks away from my second baby. All that changes is around 28 weeks you get a nasty shot and again at labor. Just know though that any trauma to your belly if you feel fine go to er and tell them you are rh- and need the rohgam shot.
2174396 tn?1337605170 i agree with sorenr... if your talking Rh factor they can test to see if you have antibldies towards it and there are shots like she said.... the Rh factor doesnt cause MCs in the first trimester either, its effects(if not treated) are towards the end of the second trimester towards the third.... as far as what i have been able to find reading up on it...
Avatar f tn Its not rare but not that common i must say.M also RH negative - B Negative my husband is O positive.
Avatar f tn This blood type is special. Lol jk its rare. And they pay good money for it too.
1950518 tn?1333219865 The concern is that you can become sensitized - this happens when the blood mixes (pending that baby is RH positive) If that happens, antibodies are created which can prove detrimental in subsequent pregnancies as these antibodies remain in you for life.
Avatar f tn Someone who is rh+ would not have any problems carrying a Rh- baby, O Rh- is the universal blood donor type, meaning that we can donate blood to any other blood group, however we can only recieve blood from O Rh- and I think one other (been too long since university!
Avatar f tn I am rh- too along with my mother. I had a threatened misscarriage at 7 weeks and they gave me the rogan shot then. I have my next one at my 28 week appointment in 2 weeks. Yay for being weird!
Avatar f tn I am O Negative I have a rare blood type how do I know what blood type my child will be ?
Avatar f tn I had AB- negative blood cell (rare blood type) I found out in 2009 when I found out I was pregnant with my first and I still have it and I just had my second baby.. And they both are perfectly healthy. With my first he's A- and my second he's a A+ blood like his father. Its nothing bad.
849762 tn?1288184748 I think it depends on what your husband's blood type is. If you're RH negative and he's RH positive (like A+, B+, AB+ or O+), then there's a risk the baby might also be positive and I guess that could cause problems...although, usually not in first pregnancies unless you already have antibodies (I read this online). To avoid this a shot can be given at 26 weeks and at birth called RhoGAM.
Avatar f tn 0- is not rare but it the universal blood type.. It is the only type of blood that can mix into any other type of blood with out any complications... Although being pregnant and having this blood type the body generally does try to regect the baby.. It is VERY NORMAL to get that shot actually they generally give every pregnant woman that shot just in case so the body doesnt regect the baby..
Avatar f tn From what I understand (and I could be wrong) its not about being o negative or a negative or whatever, its about lacking the rH factor making you rH negative. If they had found that your blood was rH negative, they would have tested dad's blood too. If he is also negative. No issues. Negative is a recessive trait so if dad was positive, baby would be positive and the difference in you and baby is what would cause issues. Hope this helps a little.
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 Everyone is either RH negative or RH positive it has nothing to do with pregnancy.
Avatar f tn t hurt at all you get the shot a total 3 time first trimester 28 weeks and after birth being rh negative is kinda rare from the latest research iv done 15% of Americans have it there is history about being rh negative its pretty interesting look it up on youtube some people think its religious but its pretty interesting to research it
934109 tn?1272010876 It is rare to become RH sensitized after a miscarriage, and even rarer when you are given Rhogam. I certainly understand your concerns about another miscarriage though! Some other tests to consider: ANA (lupus test); Anticardiolipin antibodies; Antibeta2 glycoprotein antibodies; Lupus anticoagulant; MTHFR mutations; factor V leiden; prothrombin 20210A; anti-thyroid antibodies; these are tests that are usually reserved for women who have had three or more miscarriages.
Avatar f tn if there was a tear in the uterus or anything like that, you would see blood. it is very rare to have a first baby affected by rh disease. you are basically getting the shot at 28 weeks to protect your next baby. if your baby comes out rh +, you will get another shot after birth.
Avatar n tn If so and your partner is ru positive you may need the shot depending upon the babies blood type. You can get the blood tested post party and if the baby is RH postive (most people generally are) then you can take the Rhogam shot. You don't need to take it at 28 weeks unless you have been in a serious traumatic injury to your womb, such as car accident, or bad fall etc. It's really quite rare and some research shows RH negatives have some special attributes...
Avatar f tn we can get blood from any type with the same rh. ...but can only give it to our same AB ...its crazy how we are all DIFFERENT blood types so awesome ladies...!!!(: @Victoriamichelle1010 yes those are very possible my sisters are both B- ....my bothers are A- same with my parents thats how im AB- .....
Avatar f tn I am RH negative (with A neg blood type) and am trying to conceive. Unfortunately, I have to use donor sperm. I have not received any solid information on the role the donors blood type plays in the selection process. Matching the baby's blood type to what my husband and I would create is not an issue usme. I understand there is a shot that can be taken to counteract the effects of conflicting blood types, but I am curious as to whether blood type should play a role in my selection.
Avatar f tn It isn't a huge problem at all. If the baby's dad is rh positive then your body will want to reject the baby because it's seen as a foreign body. It will not reject your first baby but it will create antibodies so the next baby you have is at risk. They use to give you immunosuppressant shots during your second pregnancy to prevent miscarriage but I believe (you can ask your doctor for sure) now they give you one while delivering your first child and it will prevent it.
1701756 tn?1307335892 Most RH- women need the shot. I believe that if your boyfriend had a negative blood type your baby would automatically have a - blood type so you wouldnt need one. This is very rare though. The doctors wont tell you that though because they cant assume that your boyfriend is actually the father. But yes, they will tell you to get one no matter what.
Avatar f tn If Mom is Rh negative and Dad is Rh positive, the baby statistically has a 50% chance of being Rh positive. Now, if this is a first pregnancy, it's usually not a problem because the baby's blood and the mother's blood typically do not co-mingle. During delivery, however, the blood can co-mingle and if that happens, mom will produce anitibodies against Rh, because her body does not have it and recognizes the baby's Rh as foreign. That means she gets "sensitized.
1230912 tn?1273492770 ) 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!
3198629 tn?1367038423 "Rhesus (Rh) factor is an inherited trait that refers to a specific protein found on the surface of red blood cells. If your blood has the protein, you're Rh positive — the most common Rh factor. If your blood lacks the protein, you're Rh negative. Although Rh factor doesn't affect your health, it can affect pregnancy. Your pregnancy needs special care if you're Rh negative and your baby's father is Rh positive.
Avatar f tn m wondering is anyone else like me ? I know o- blood types are rare only 15% or less of the worlds population has this blood type. Anyone have advice for me? I'm a first time mom and I've found myself worried about the health of my baby. Ill be 8 weeks Tuesday .
Avatar f tn And it is to protect your baby from the antibodies in your blood. When your blood is RH negative your body will try to kill the baby as a foreign substance in your body and try to expel it. For some reason that is what happens. It's like your body cannot recognize that it is a baby and is safe. So it is just your body's defenses kicking in. But as blueeyedtabbycat said you'll get the shot soon. Not sure where they stick you. Probably the bicep.
