Hey ladies - I'm visiting from the Feb 2013 board. Since you all are further along in your pregnancies I was wondering if any of you were experienced with HDN. My second child had it but it was mild and didn't require any treatment. Now, pregnant with my third, I was just told today that this baby has it as well. I was told the baby may have to have a blood transfusion done before birth or if I could make it to 36/37 weeks without it progressing any further that I could deliver via c-section. Has anyone else had any of this done or know of anyone that has? Any advice would be appreciated. TIA!

I don't know anything about it, but good luck.  It's so scary when problems happen.  I hope everything goes well for you.

I haven't had this happen but I did just have my baby at 36w2d and he didn't need the nicu at all. I hope someone can give you insight.
