@anotherbee: I happened to be browsing the pregnancy boards and this caught my eye as I am also A- blood type. I think you are right about why you would need to inform your doctor of any spotting, if the two bloods mix your body can start to produce antibodies.

I googled and found this site: http://www.americanpregnancy.org/pregnancycomplications/rhfactor.html

So I assume if you are spotting they would want to give you the shot early to keep your body from producing the antibodies. Otherwise I think you can wait until the 28 week mark to get it.  I assume your husband is RH positive? As I understand if the mother and father are both RH negative there is no need for concern as the baby would inherit the negative RH as well.

I hope you have a healthy and stress-free pregnancy! I was so excited for you on the TTC boards when I saw your news. 🙂
