I noticed on another site some ladies were discussing blood type and mentioning having to have shots due to what blood type they and their husbands had. I was curious so I did some research. It's more to do with if your RH- and the father is RH+. If the baby is RH+, it can cause problems-though I guess it's not common?. But considering I'm O- and Stephen's O+ I'm glad to have come across this bit of information. This site explained it pretty well : http://www.healthline.com/blogs/pregnancy_childbirth/2007/02/implications-of-negative-blood-type.html
I had no idea about this, and not sure if it's been discussed here or not...but wanted to share in case someone else out that didn't know about it.
Has any BTDT moms dealt with this issue?
Thanks to Sophie for my amazing siggy!
