My daughter is a positive and so is her father. I guess I was a little lucky that I didn't have problems with her. My mom was rh neg too... but no one failed to give her the shots.

I had the routine everything with my son. Then when I got pregnant this time, triplets I had alot of spotting and miscarried one of the babies at about 7 weeks. the hospital forgot to give me the shot and my doc was sooo mad and did it in his office when I told him they never gave it to me. I was so in shock at the hospital I didnt think of it either. I am now 33 weeks pregnant with my twins and have had no problems yet!

I had one during my pregnancy with both my kids then one after my first child. Didnt need one with my second child or when I had a miscarriage with my 3rd because my husband has negative blood also.

No problems with that pregnacy! I even went over ten days... I thought the lack of the shot would be sure to cause me some problems. thanx for the info.

Sometimes there can be problems with any subsequent pregnancies, but I'm not sure if just the one post-natal Anti-D will cover you. Did you have any bleeding or spotting during the pregnancy? If you and your baby's blood got mixed your body will have produced antibodies which may react to any future babies you carry. It will mean any more pregnancies will have to be monitored closely with regular blood tests. This happened to my Aunt (20yrs ago mind you) - she had a bleed during her first pregnancy but wasn't given an Anti-D. Then during her second pregnancy, which she knew may be complicated, her anti-body level rose dramatically at around 35wks forcing an induction. The baby was early and small, but was fine after a couple of days in NICU.
Just be aware of it and make sure your doctor knows the full situation should you have any more babies. They'll watch you closely and if it becomes a problem they can deal with it then :)

I did and it was not a major problem at all. I had some spotting at 21 wks so had an Anti-D then, the routine Anti-D at 28 wks, another at 36wks and the one after I delivered. As long as you have the routine blood screens for antibodies and get your shots there shouldn't be a problem.
