Yesterday we got rear ended in minor fender bender accident. I kind of freaked out b/c the situation was similar to the car accident we were in when I was 30 weeks pregnant with DS in Jan 2010. Except that the accident we were in with DS's pregnancy in 2010 was a lot worse. We were rear ended by someone going 65 mph and I was hospitalized for 24 hours. Fortunately everything turned out okay with DS - it was emotionally very traumatic and scary experience.
So yesterday's little accident was nothing like that BUT I am rh negative (O negative) and I was planning that for this pregnancy w/ DD I would not do the rhogam prenatally. That was before yesterday. Now I don't know what I am going to do. Yesterday's accident the car hit us at maybe 10 mph - it just felt like someone gave you a good hard shove. But it wasn't terrible. I'm seeing my midwife today at 3 pm - she's going to take some blood to see if there are any fetal blood cells in my blood. But I don't know what to do! Should I do the rhogam? If I do decide to I only have 72 hours from the time of the trauma. Plus it hasn't help that I've googled situations like this and some women had placental abruption even when the accident wasn't that serious. SCARY! I probably shouldn't have done the google search b/c it freaked me out. Sorry for the ramble... my thoughts are jumbled up and I just feel confused about what to do.
