Antibodies & preg: Anti-e antibodies mean that your body will react against blood or cells with an "e-antigen" marker. First and simplest step is for your partner to have his blood tested to find out whether he carries this antigen. If he doesn't carry it, then it will not be a problem if you get pregnant with him. If he does carry the antigen, consult with a high-risk specialist in advance to manage & monitor. ...Read more

35 week of pregnancy, antibody anti-e (1:8).My blood group:ab ccd. Ee (rh pos), father b+.What does it mean? Why should we test the antogen of the father?

You inherited two copies of the cde allele, one of several that you can get at your main rh locus, and the father of at least one of your children has at least one copy of an allele with a big e. Titer isn't so important as how junior seems to be doing before birth. Best wishes. ...Read more
