RH factor and second baby...

With my first I had to have Rhogam shots. 2 I think. One at 8 months and one post delivery. Should I have another before TTC?

  • no not before you conceive it will be the same with your second you will get the first shot while you are pregnant i cant remember how far along i was when i got the first than if you need the second you will get it after delivery i have had three children all went well with all of them so no worries good luck
