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

Blood clot: If there is a subchorionic hematoma there, it would be best to get the anti-d injection to reduce any risk of exposure. The chance is small since much of the blood is probably from your circulation but it would be better than developing antibodies with exposure. ...Read more

Would there be any reason for the baby to move more frequently after receiving the anti-d injection?

No: There is no reason why the baby should move more after you receive your anti-d injection. This injection, also commonly known by its brand name of rhogam, is usually given around 28 weeks, when the sensation of fetal movement tends to be very strong; it may therefore be a coincidence. ...Read more

I'm resus negative with anti D in my blood and anti d levels was 4.63 at 28 week check. Should I have had my anti d injection?

Depends: If you were already sensitized prior to this pregnancy (anti-D positive) it is too late for rhogam to help. If the baby's dad is Rh-,this is not a problem. However, if he is Rh+,yours is a high risk pregnancy and needs special monitoring. These pregnancies are usually managed in high risk centers by maternal-fetal medicine specialists ...Read more
