I just had my first child in August of 2009. When I was pregnant, my doctor told me that I was RH negative and that I would need a shot at 27 weeks and again once my son was born...IF he tested to be RH positive. If I didn't get the shot and my son was RH positive, my body will build up antibodies to my future pregnancies and I have a high chance of miscarriage. Well it took me 2 days in the hospital to get someone to tell me if my son was RH positive or not. Never once did I get a real solid answer. Finally a nurse told me he was RH negative so I didn't need the shot. I've been really uneasy about it since and I don't confident that they gave me the correct answer. Now I'm terrified that I'm going to miscarry all my other babies that I conceive in the future. What can I do about this?!

Your OB should be able to tell you. He/She can get your hospital records if there's not already a copy in the office.
