For anyone using a donor do you try and match the blood type. Im negative and was trying to stick with negative but doc is saying a positive blood type is fine. Im just nervous about this. I have lost 2 and they were positive

I am a positive so it wasn't an issue with me. I thought if the mother was a negative then there could be Rh factor issue if the partner is positive as this could mean the baby is positive. After your 2 losses, did they give you the injections to help prevent your body from developing antibodies against the positive Rh? I remember my RE saying it's a 2 shot series given after a pg, m/c, anywhere where blood may have mixed. (I'm probably not explaining that so it's understandable. google Rh and pregnancy) To ease your mind you may want to try to find a donor who is negative. The majority of people are positive, but I remember seeing a few on the lists that were negative.

From all that I remember, if you had the shots then you're probably fine. They would need to monitor it, of course, but to be on the safe side you can try to find that match too. I know it's few though as the majority of the population are positive. Good luck!!

My donor is positive, we didn't rule out due to it- he matched my husband in every way, including blood type. I've had the rhogham shots with both of my D&C's, so I didn't figure it to be a big deal. If it was my husband's sperm I would have needed it anyway again.
