me and my husband are trying to get pregnant with our second child but we have incompatable blood types. i got a shot to protect our first child during birth but i'm not sure if the second one is protected as well? this can cause miscarriages. any help?

Usually they will give a rogam (sp) shot a few weeks into the pregnancy. If you m/c, you need the shot while you are still bleeding. Don't know why though.

I went through the same thing. You will need to take the shot again for the second child (first at 28-wks and again after delivery.) Best wishes to you and your family.

The shot you got the first time was to protect you from a subsequent pregnancy. It keeps your body from producing antibodies against a positive RH that way when you get pregnant again your body won't attack the fetus's blood supply as if it were a foreign invader. If you do get pregnant again and they know of your's and the father's blood mismatch a shot of Rhogham should be given around the middle of the pregnancy. It is very important for the health of the second baby.

i am also rh- and had the shots with my first, now with my second i found that if you have any bleeding at any time during your pregnancy you need to have the rhogam shot then, and will probably get it again later in your pregnancy, as scheduled, and again after your baby is born.
