    I had a midwife appointment this morn and had a different lady from usual. She said to me oh your Rhesus negative and I thought...no I'm not because I would have been told and I guessed it was all straightforward as my midwife had never said anything before. So she checked my notes and the comp and I AM!!

    So now I have to go to the hospital for an appointment and the Anti-D injection which is 4 weeks too late and I am considered high risk so I might not get the water birth that I soo want.

    I'm just pleased that I had a different lady this morn otherwise I wouldn't have known and could have put the baby at risk.

    Just letting off some steam as extremly peed off at the mo....and breath!! lol

    Is it something that changed recently? as i know they do two blood tests to check, one earlier on and then i had another at my 28 wk check. The mw said its unlikely to change but i guess it must do for some people otherwise they wouldn't do two lots of bloods. They should of noted the results from your earlier test in your pregnancy notes as well though so you can check. Thats really bad if you've been neg all the way through and they only just told you!

    is this your first baby???? if so i didnt have any anti d jabs with my first, it is with second etc etc babies that u are more at risk of producing antibodies. i'm sure u will be fine hun, but still an utter disgrace that they didnt tell u, cos if u have any bleeding through ur preg u have to have an anti d jab, i would lodge a complaint x

    Thanks everyone. Just got back from the hospital and had the injection.

    They said that she wouldn have known from when I first had bloods taken at 15 weeks or so but couldn't understand why I was never told.

    Oh well at least I know now but I am just really upset with my midwife as she should have told me and let me know more about it.

    I would seriously put in a complaint! I had to tell my MW I was rhesus negative as they didn't know. I found out after a telephone call from the receptionist at my GP surgery. Unfortunately for me, the MW tied to my practice are actually hosp based so my results go to my GP surgery and eventually make there way to the MW.

    Maybe something similar happened with your original blood results?
