  • If it was something you think you still had with your first child, and he/she turned out ok, then it shouldn't be anything to worry about. What did your doctor say about it?

  • they should give you a shot of RoGham. i had to have that b.c of my blood type. my blood has antibodies in it that will not attack my first baby but it will attack my second. so the shot got rid of those anti bodies so i can have as many kids as i want and not have to worry. they shoud have given this to you with your first pregnancy around 28 weeks.

  • oh, then yea i dont think you can have it them. im sorry i must have misunderstood what you were asking. i would call and talk to your dr. just say you are concerned about what they told you at your appt and he should explain it all.
