Have any of you been talked to about this negative blood type business and needing a shot? I'm pregnant now, but barely (15 DPO). My doc said in the event that I lose the fetus I need to get my blood type tested because a person who has RH negative blood (which I believe would be like A- or O- or anything with the negative after it) or if the fetus has a chance at having a negative blood type (if the father did) then I would need a special shot because once the fetus's blood came in contact with mine, whether at miscarriage or at birth, my body could attack the antibodies in the blood and I would have a difficult time getting pregnant again because it would think everything is a foreign matter to be attacked or something along those lines (I was taking in a lot of info at the time!)
I was surprised I had never heard of this before because I was addicted to the internet and forums during the time we were TTC and the 2WW and never saw anything like this. It made me wonder how many women may have early miscarriages or chemical pregnancies and not realize if they have RH negative blood and that they need to do something about it. Anyone had the shot, or have any more information on this?
