  • Since you had the shot during your first pregnancy, you'll be good to go now! They didn't give you the shot after you delivered because your baby turned out to have the same blood type as you. If they have a different blood type, you both have to get the shot again. They'll most likely give you the shot around 28 weeks with this pregnancy, too. Good luck =]

  • I am also RH negative as well and had the shot around 28 ish weeks with my first pregnancy. I didn't have to get the shot after I delivered but will have to get again for my next pregnancy.

  • I would definitely see your doctor soon. Please don't think I am trying to scare you, but I lost my first baby because I was negative and the baby was positive. I now have two healthy kids. Just see your doctor so you can be at ease and have them explain everything.
