  • It won't affect your fertility. What is your SO's blood type? If your daughter is Rh negative, then he probably is, too, which means you wouldn't need the RhoGam shot. Double check his blood type, though. An Rh positive baby's blood and your blood mixing can lead to serious blood clots, and that can be really dangerous.

  • I have a RH negative blood type also. If you have another baby alls you have to do is just get the shot. I dont think it matters if you get the shot and the baby turns out to have the same blood type but it WILL matters if you dont get the shot and the baby dose not have the same blood type and your blood types cross.

  • If you're not sure and he's not sure (FYI, super simple blood test to find out what type he has), you should get the RhoGam shot next time. It's not so bad, just one shot when you're about 20 weeks, and another when you go into labor. No big deal.
