Rh- only has to do with the mother, u have to get a shot around 28 weeks so that the baby won't reject your blood. There is something in your blood that doesn't mix, baby will treat it like a virus and attack it. My suggestion is to get the shot...

You are right. If you know for a fact that your dh is rh negative (and he can be tested to prove it) you shouldn't need the rhogam because there's no chance the baby will have a positive blood type, it will inherit the negative blood type from both of it's parents so there's no worry about antibodies.

Most doctors don't test the partner, they just assume they might be + but it might be worth talking to your doctor about.

We questioned in when I was pregnant with Jas. We were told that they won't even take into account Dad's blood type on the off chance he is not the father. While in most cases this isn't an issue, because it can be in a small amount of cases they will not simply take Mum's word for it.

They give you a shot for subsequent pregnancies. there would only be a problem if the baby's blood mixed with the mother's blood during delivery. I think that they give you a shot after the birth of the baby, but i'm not 100% sure. I think I am negative as well, will find out soon

I think a shot after the birth is a good idea after reading the previous posts.

Of course I'm not saying it applies to your situation in the slightest, but it just got me thinking, that if a Rh- mother didn't have a shot after birth because her partner was also Rh-, but then they broke up and later the mother got pregnant to someone else and didn't know his rhesus factor, then that new baby is the one that could be affected if there hadn't been a shot given after the previous pregnancy... I think there is only a certain period of time it can be given after birth? That's the way I understand it anyway.

I am Rh+ so my doctor has never brought it up as an issue with me so apologies if I haven't got it right!!

They will only go off your blood type.

The shot isn't a big deal, I say be safe rather than sorry you know.

I was told that if the father is rh- then there is no concern because the baby will not be rh+. The md might want to check you dh/so just to make sure but that is what I was told. When I went in for registration I mentioned to her that I was rh- and her next question was if dh was rh- as well and I said no. She said yup you'll be getting shots.

If both parents are rh- then the baby can ONLY be rh-

Hope this helps.

Here is what I found regarding the issue Rh- for both parents

I wish I knew the answer. We are both rh+ so I never even had the shot mentioned to me.
