  • Again, why didn't you ask the doctor about all of this? We aren't medical professionals. Rh negative is relatively common, the shot is to keep your body from rejecting the baby.

  • This is not google. We are not doctors. These would be questions for a medical professional.

  • uh PLEASE ask your doctor any time you have questions I am also RH negative, I had to take some tests and have a rogam shot with my first, but not with my second, it depends on if your child has a negative blood type or not whether you get a shot and whether they get a shot. Please call your doctor tomorrow, don't consult a website. read this tonight, then call your doctor http://www.justmommies.com/articles/rh_negative.shtml

  • I am Rh negative, my dh is not. I had t get rhogam shots with both pregnancies to prevent my body from rejecting the babies. Everything will be ok it's just a quick shot in the hip.

  • Just means you will have a shot of Rhogam later in pregnancy, and if you child is born with RH positive blood, they will give you another shot after birth. I't snot a big deal.

  • I am also Rh- I had to get a shots with both pregnancies during the pregnancy and after my kids were born it's quick and painless. G/L. Also ask your OB these questions they can give you more info.

  • They will just give you a shot and you continue on with the pregnancy. Not a big deal like it used to be in the past. No worries!!
