I missed a call from the doctor just now (I had an appointment and exam on Tues.) and all they said was for me to call them back. Of course I tried calling back and no one answered. Now I am sitting here feeling sick and incredibly worried because I have never gotten a follow up call for an appointment ever.

Please, please just call me back...

***

The doctor finally called back. They said I have a negative blood type and I have to get some kind of shots and I will always have to get them during pregnancies. She didn't explain much to me and I have yet to do some research. Has anyone had this issue? What was it like? It sounded like it could possibly kill your baby if your blood mixed or something, I don't know. I am I about to go into major research mode.

That would freak me out, too. Let us know when you hear back ASAP. I'm sure everything is fine.

What did they do at your appointment that you would have results to hear about? That would drive me crazy If no one answered! Hopefully they call you back soon.

Also if something was wrong I would hope they would have called you before today if your appt was on Tuesday.

I think that is your RH factor. I don't completly understand it. But if you have a negative RH factor, you have to get a shot.

Rhogam shots...Honestly not a HUGE deal....just need to make sure you get one anytime you bleed during pregnancy you will also get a shot sometime late 2nd early 3rd trimester and another when you give birth....it's so that in the future you can have more babies bc if the shots are not given then your body will reject any following pregnancies...

Did you have any blood work? I had some done maybe that's what they were callin back with? They checked my blood type if you have a certain kind I think they put you on some kind of med so maybe that's it?

Sorry got delayed in sending my response. I agree with what the other ladies said hugs!

I haven't had this, but from what I have seen, it's an easy thing to deal with as far as all the things that can happen in pregnancy.

Rogram shots for negative blood type is automatically given. There is no risk to your current baby, but your body will reject the next if it has positive blood type. My SIL has to get them while pg and then after birth. She's had 4 healthy pg because of the shots. It should be easy to look up online and I know the info is in my pg books! Its super common as everyone with a negative blood type gets them. If you ever have a m/c you will need a shot even if you have it at home vs D&C. I know for hers she had to come in. If the baby has negative blood type its not a concern, but they give the shot routinely to be safe!

Thank you, I really appreciate the responses. My husband has a positive blood type, so I guess that just adds to the risk. It wasn't even something that crossed my mind. But I suppose there isn't anything I can do about it and it sounds like the shots do all that's possible to control it.

I guess I will just do my best to put it out of my mind! I haven't had any bleeding thus far, so that's good.

I wouldn't go in to freak out mode. All you have to do is get the shot. My friend had this and all four of her kids are fine. I'm glad that was all it was !

I am Rh negative.

I was worried about this with my first baby, but it has caused me no issues. Please though, know when you have to get your Rhogam shot. You need one at 28 weeks, and also before you leave the hospital when you give birth. You also need to tell your doctor if you experience ANY bleeding, because they will probably give you one then. The shot after birth is very important, because it will protect your future children.

I had to remind my nurses at the hospital with BOTH babies before I left, so be sure you are aware of it!! Let me know if you have any other questions.

I'm RH neg and don't freak out. You get one part way through pregnancy and one after the baby is born, but only if the baby is rh+. You also get one if you miscarry. It isn't a big deal and is super common. Surprisingly both my mom and mil are rh- and all of our hubby's are rh+... so opposites attract I'm not sure why you would need one so early or why they would make it sound like the world is ending.

Thanks guys. It's reassuring knowing there are others in the same situation and that everything should be fine!

I am A- as well and so I get the shots too. I got them with my daughter 11 years ago as well. But make sure that you tell your doctor if you are having any cramping that doesn't seem normal because they will give it to you for that as well. I got mine early this time for cramping even though there has been no bleeding.
