I'm 28weeks pregnant and have to have a anti d injection, I have already had one when I had a miscarriage. I'm scared of allergic reaction?

Don't be scared: you need to have it at 28 weeks pregnancy, regardless, and also after delivery. If you had it before and had no reaction, then most probably you won't have an allergic reaction, at any rate, tell your your doctor about your worries, take the shot in the doctor's office or in the hospital, and stay under observation for at least 30 minutes after, wish you an uneventful pregnancy and a healthy baby ...Read more

Very likely: When a woman's blood type is "rh negative" and the father's blood type is not known, a woman will receive Anti d after a miscarriage. She will also receive Anti d at 28 weeks of a viable pregnancy, because the risk for production of antibodies after 28 weeks increases and the shot will last until 40 weeks. The father is typically assumed to be "Rh positive" - because the doctor doesn't know better ...Read more

No: There is no reason why the baby should move more after you receive your anti-d injection.

Request records: Try and request your hospital records to see if Rhogam was given or not and notify your doctor of the results. Rh antibodies will not affect your ability to become pregnant but they could potentially affect the pregnancy itself. When you become pregnant, an antibody screen will be one of the first labs that is drawn to see if any antibodies have formed. ...Read more
