Problems Caused By Not Having Rogham Shot

RH Blood - December 30

What problems can be caused by not getting the rogham shot when you have RH blood? My dr. isn't giving me mine 'til my 29th week. And I didn't have my shot with my last baby until late. So miscarriage doesn't seem like the only risk by not getting one, since they give the shot so late, and you usually don't miscarry that late.

hi, im 29wks today and i also have negative blood. i'm supposed to be getting my shot at my appt. later today. i've been asking my doc about the shot since 19wks, but he kept insisting that i'd get it btwn 27 and 32wks. i've done alot of online research online and the RH incompatability factor isn't supposed to be too much of an issue w/ the 1st pregnancy until delivery time. it's not likely that the baby's blood will mix w/ yours 'til the delivery. our bodies don't start producing the antibodies to fight pos. blood 'til that mix occurs and by then the 1st baby is safe. it's mainly important for helpng you to have successful future pregnancies. if you don't get the shot, the antibodies that you bady may develop after labor may attack any future RH pos. baby you may be carrying way before the third trimester. i hope this helps a little. like i said, i'm on my way to the dr now, so i'll be getting more info today. if you need any info about the actual shot, just ask. good luck!

Rh shot is for the blood group thing. If you have neg RH and the baby has positive RH, yours can attack the babies. I had the shot for both my babies, nothing major happened. I am not too sure why they don't do it until the 28th week though. But it is supposed to be safer for the baby. Good luck with that
