  • Nope. I am O-. You will get Rhogam shots, unless your husband also has negative blood, then you don't have to worry about anything. They will test the baby after it is born to see if it has neg or pos blood to determine if you need the pp shot.

  • Nahh you'll be fine =] Like reflect said, you'll just get the Rhogam shot around 26-28 weeks, and then again at birth if your baby's blood doesn't match yours. I'm A- and I'm doing just fine with my pregnancy.

  • Nope. I'm o- too. Like they said, you'll get a rhogam shot, and then one after birth if your baby has a positive blood type. But if baby comes out with a - blood type you'll never need one again!
