    Hi!
    I have O Rhesus Negative blood too and it's nothing to worry about. You just get an Anti D injection (in your bum cheek or thigh) at approx 28 weeks and if you have any bleeds/complications in pregnancy.
    It's just to stop the chance that your antibodies might attack the baby if he/she has a positive blood type.
    Hope this helps :)

    Can I ask how long it take to get your results? Had my tests over 2 weeks ago and no letter yet. Assume no news is good news, but would have expected to hear by now! Thanks x
