O- Blood type, rhogam shot?


I have O- type blood, and was told I'd need a rhogam shot during pregnancy and after.

I am early along, and wondering, do I need one this early? Would I have any complications by not getting it early?

You will need it at 27 weeks and again after giving birth (if the baby is a positive blood type). The only reason you would need it earlier is if you suffered a fall of any type. The shot itself really isn't too bad, they put it in your bum but it doesn't hurt

Oh okay, I was just wondering. I am not too worried about a shot hurting I am kind of tough with that

My mother was Rh- too, so she had to get the shot with me, and my sister.... Do they blood type the baby, or just assume, and give you a shot incase? I ask because my mom never knew my blood type, but I was born in '87...maybe thats changed?

I thought it was funny being a 'weird' bloodtype and not even knowing. Now I am annoyed at the fact that out of all blood types, I got the one that requires a O- blood type donor should I ever need blood. And only 7% of people have O-. Lovely. LOL

It's usually at 28 weeks or after an amnio/accident that could have caused your blood to mix with the baby's. So, at this stage, if you've not had any kind of serious blow to the stomach, it's not really necessary.
