So I am RH-0 and my husband is A+ so apparently I will most likely need to get a shot so my body doesn't try to fight off the baby. Has anyone else had this?

My concern is with my other two pregnancies it was never even brought up. I have no idea what their fathers blood type is or even theirs for that matter. I am just shocked I went through both those pregnancies without it even being mentioned.

Do you know what your children blood types are? With that info you could figure out their father blood type. For example my blood type is o+ dh is o - which means my children have o type blood most likely with the positive antibodies.

My grandmother and Aunt had that problem. My grandmother lost a baby because they didn't know. My Aunt found out and received the shots and had 3 healthy babies

I had it in the beginning. They gave it to me just in case. I didn't know my blood type I ended up being O+. They gave it to me because they said the antibodies could try to attack the babies blood

I don't know theirs, I'm on a mission to find out though! My mother is O- and my father is + but me and my brother are - when I thought you most likely got what your father is.

I am surprised too & the doctor hasn't brought it up! My husbands parents brought up how e was + and I said I am pretty sure I am - and so I called my mother and sure enough I am! I have an appointment next week and am going to bring it up.

I studied blood types. Your father must have carried a recessive negative gene. You got a negative from your mother and the other negative from your father. To be a negative blood type you need two negative genes. If you had gotten the other positive from your father you'd have a dominant positive and a recessive negative, but it's expressed as positive.
