I have given birth a variety of ways and I am thankful for what each one has taught me.

I own Anne Frye's book and it was reassuring to my sis (and mom) and to a degree, me, when we read it. Yes she will have bloodwork continuously throughout the rest of her pregnancy, and I know induction as early as safely possible is something that might be necessary. She is getting her care from an OB, as she prefers that. This is her second child, different marriage/father than her first. She likely got the antigen from a blood transfusion years ago. My nephew was never tested for anything during her preg with him, nor was she... no one picked up on it maybe? In any case, he was and is fine (8 years old). This is a second baby, more susceptible to complications perhaps? She is due in early November so we have a ways to go.
pray pray pray, that is what I am doing now.
