 So when I was preggo w/my son I had to get the RH shot, bc my blood is O Negative. I still haven't gotten the shot yet, and I'm 23 weeks... I was wondering around WHEN in my pregnancy I'll get it?? I swear if my doctors "forgot" I'll be soooo mad

28 weeks unless you had bleeding earlier on... I had to have one at 7 weeks w/ my first and then again at 28, but still have a few weeks before my first shot with this one. Don't worry... you're fine. You might ask them to run an antibody test though... my dr didn't last time, but my midwife is this time (despite not having any at the beginning of the pg, we checked then too). Is a huge comfort to know!

I am O negative as well and have to get the RH shot. I'm getting mine tomorrow at 29 weeks and 6 days. they usually dont give it until about 28 weeks. i would bring it up to the doctor at your next visit

Do you know your husband's blood type?  If he's negative as well the shot is pointless...

I think it is 28 weeks. I'm 25 and haven't gotten my shot yet. I'm A- and hubby is A+. I was lucky with my first son, he was A- also so I didn't have to have the shot after birth. I would mention it to your doctor.

LOL I asked him when I thought of it, it would figure that he's A+

Typically you'll get the shot around 28 weeks, give or take a week. I had mine at 29 weeks and some odd days this pregnancy, right at 28 weeks with my son. I am A-. My ex was B+, my husband is O+, so there was no way out of it for me. You'll have to get another one shortly after you give birth, I believe, though this may be contingent on the baby's blood type. My son came out A+, and I do remember getting a second shot after he was born.
