I spoke with my gyno's office today over the phone just to check on my blood work. They said everything looks good, including my progesterone and hcg levels, but my blood type is negative. Since my partner's blood type is positive, I have to get a shot at 28 weeks.

There'a a possibility that I may have to be tested to see if the "bad" antibodies were already created. I called the office just to make sure that everything was ok...they said that it's not anything to be too concerned about, but still. Grrr.

I actually had a very early m/c about 14 years ago - I'm angry that my blood type was never tested. Since this is technically my second pregnancy, I could theoretically already have the "bad" antibodies...though I know the odds are low. I will talk to my NP about the antibodies test just in case.

Hello there!

My blood type is A- The first time I got the rhogam shot was back in 2002 when my daughter was born.

I read in the Rhogam page http://www.rhogam.com/Patient/PaFAQS/Pages/default.aspx that the shot covers you for 12 weeks at a time, I didn't know this before I got pregnant again 2 months ago, and I has a miscarriage at 5 weeks =( and I got the Rhogam shot again then .

I just got the news that Im pregnant again, hope in the Lord it all goes well this time. Hope it all goes good will all of you too!!!
