If this is what I think it is.... it means your bloodtype is negative and your baby's is positive.
My mom had this with both of her pregnancies. With me, her first, it was not a problem... because just like you can eat something for the first time or take meds, etc and not have an allergic respsonse, your body does the same with your first RH positive pregnancy. (I'm not sure if this holds true in ALL cases, but it was for her.)
For her 2nd pregnancy, she had to simply get shots so that her body would not reject the baby (who was RH pos) as a parasite. She said it was no big deal. This would have been in 1980, so I'm not sure if procedures have changed any for RH pos. baby/RH neg mom from then until now.
I don't see how that puts you at risk if all you need is a few shots. Do they work with any OB's? Maybe it's a matter of some more testing and getting you regulated, or working with an OB *and* a midwife.
|I might be able to help you out - both dh and I are in the med lab field, and dh oversees a large hospital blood bank now.
Did they titer you to see how much anti e you do have? And, it may sound like an odd question, but are you white? Feel free to pm me if your uncomfortable with posting your race.
(and is it a BIG E or a little e?)
Last minute thought...are they going to type/screen your so?
