My doc told me at 24 weeks I will need to get a shot because my blood type is A- and my hubby's is o+. Has anyone else here had this shot and where do they give it? I heard it's in the bum. lol

I had that shot as well because I'm A- negative and RH-. Its in the b___t. Doesn't hurt so no worries.

Yup., I had it too, in the ol' bum (well the cheek actually, LOL) I'm A negative and my DH is AB positive. My baby boy is AB positive. You will have another one right before or after delivery, I think. I had an amniocentesis, so I had one then too. It's so your blood doesn't build antibodies against your baby's blood, in the case that your baby's blood is the same as your DH, (like my son's is) and in case they came in contact in-utero. You will get these shots with every PG, no biggie really but it was in the old days before they had the shot.

i just found out i'm A- as well, i was abit worried as it sounds quiet rare, but i feel better now knowing there's more of us, do you have this needle if your just a A- person???

Im A- as well and got that shot in my b___t as the others said, I believe if the little one doesnt have your blood type when he/she is born you have to get one more. I didnt have to but its not horrible if you do. goodluck
