You shouldn’t let it freak you out.  Essentially you will need to have a shot of RhoGAM in your second trimester and another shortly after delivery.  With proper prenatal care Rh compatability is hardly a problem in the U.S.

Agreed- very common and not a big deal, in most cases.  Only warning is that when you do get pregnant, if you have (God forbid) any vaginal bleeding, miscarriage, or tubal pregnancy, you need to advocate for yourself and be sure that you get Rhogam at the time of the bleeding (in the 1st trimester, or whenever).   If none of that occurs, you will just get Rhogam routinely later in pregnancy as kiddosc said. This will prevent problems in future pregnancies.

I don’t know about my hubby, but I know I’m Rh – and my mom had to get the shot when she was preggers with me.

There were no complications when I was born.

From what I understand about it (since it’ll likely be my case) if the baby is Rh (opposite to you) you just need a shot that will prevent problems incase the blood ends up mixing (which would only happen in a trama situation)

Things are much better now for folks with Rh incompatibility! It shouldn’t cause any issues with getting pregnant, and like everyone else said, all you should need are some shots. In more severe cases, your baby might need prenatal blood transfusions, but that’s definitely not the norm.

My parents are incompatible, and my mom had 3 healthy babies!! 🙂  Darling Husband and I are too we think.  I know I am O- but Darling Husband has had different people tell him different things, so we’re going to get retested during prenatal visits which are light years away, but it’s good to know that it could be an issue since my blood definitely is negative.

I’m 31 weeks with Rh-, just had my Rhogam a few weeks ago and I’ll have another at delivery. Everything is great so far 🙂

I’m A-, Darling Husband is O+, and Dirty Delete is A+. Our blood ended up mixing as I was giving birth and so she’s Coombs positive. So far we haven’t had any problems at all. We both got shots and that was that 🙂

I had to have the RhoGAM shot, due to the RH factor.  Basically I had a shot in my late 2nd trimester and within in hour of little man being born.  From my understanding it is hereditry, my grandmother had the same thing with my youngest uncle.

It’s truly not a big deal anymore.

I have A- blood and Darling Husband is positive, i know you just need to get the shot at 28 weeks or so, but does that shot mean there is no chances what so ever for something to go wrong? It kinda worries me still.

really really not a big deal.. I had a little spotting early in my first trimester and they gave me a shot. I had another at 28 weeks, and I’ll have another after birth. I wouldn’t even think about this being a problem:)

You just need a shot in early pregnancy and another after birth as other bees have said…My parents are an O-, O+ mix…My mom had three healthy pregnancies.  I got my mom’s O- blood, my husband is O+…So when I had my m/c I needed a rhogam shot and I will need one for future pregancies, but that’s it.  As long as you don’t mind shots, not such a big deal!
