    when i lost mine in sept they gave me two. i got the first one a week before the MC because i had started bleeding and i got the second one after my d&c. i have gone crazy thinking that the rh- issue was what made me lose the baby in the first place...but i dont know for sure-

    Thanks ladies! I called today and they said DEFINITELY! They said what probably happened was I was pg last month to, had all the symptoms, but miscarried not knowing last month but since I did not get my shot after that it is probably what made me miscarry now. I am getting it today. I feel better knowing an answer.

    Just wanted to say I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm RH- as well and received the shot with both of my miscarriages. The first was a missed miscarriage so they gave me the shot before they gave me the pills that caused the miscarriage to happen. The second was a chemical and I just woke up to what I would have assumed was a late period except I had taken an early preg test and received a positive. I went into the doctor that day and they gave me the shot, ordered bloodwork, and did a transvaginal ultrasound to see if I was possibly still pregnant or if it was etopic.

    Good luck hun and hang in there :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

    Thanks Bernina! They told me I did have a missed miscarriage last month and then this one this month. :shrug: Hopefully this month is our month to get pregnant again. I'm feeling pretty positive about it! January I will get my :bfp: again! :D They were pretty positive that not having the RhoGAM Shot was what did it this time.
