so far i have found info on *one* site, and it seems it is similar to being Rh-, but there isnt' a shot i can just get in my last half of preg etc to make my body not attack the baby's blood supply.

I remembered reading something about Positive for Antibody E test results a while back and this is what I found in the archive. Sorry I can't be more help!

thanks for that link. this is the only one i found that really had much info, and it basically said the same thing, that it is an rh thing, and that i should have monthly labs to check levels, ultrasounds at a frequency MUCH more often than the 1 that i was actually planning, and likely an amnio and if the amnio results aren't good, the baby could need a transfusion in utero.

thing is i REALLY hate needles, and i know there are risks to amnios to the baby(miscarriage etc), so i'm wondering if i could get around that ...

i was hoping that with as big as mdc is, that there were some other mamas who might have info for me, or one of our midwives/birth professionals, but so far...

try posting in the birth professionals board, or the pregnancy board, with anti-E in the title.

Did you find these?

Googing anti-e pregnancy gave me lots of results

Did you read this whole thread? You may be able to PM some of these moms if they are still around for some more info & support?

I just stumbled across a thread in the August DDC, the mom's screen name is adoremybabe, and her thread is something like "a phone call I didn't expect" or similar to that. She also just found out she has antigen E, and she explained how her OB described it to her. You two might want to talk
