I'm 13 weeks with antibodies and heaps anxious.

It's nice to hear all the positive outcomes. How early can antibodies affect baby tho?

And how often should I see my doctor?

Or do a blood test?

What happens if the levels rise dramatically early on?

My understanding is that you have an Rh factor that isn't compatible with your baby. So if you are Rh negative for example, and baby is Rh positive, you need the Rh factor shot a couple of times during your pregnancy. I got my shots since I was Rh neg and son and daughter were Rh positive at 8 weeks and I THINK 16 weeks, then again upon delivery. Ask your DR asap though (if this is the case).

Hi Christy,

I had those shots with my first, but with our second we had stillborn and my body created the antibodies so they will be in me forever and once there is antibodies those shots don't work, our babies will all be positive due to my husband blood group.

thanks for your reply.
