In brief: Usually

It is commonplace for a pregnant mom in that situation to receive rhogam around 28 wks of gestation and again after birth if the kid is rh+.
If the kid turns out to be rh- the 2nd dose is omitted.

In brief: Possibly

With an rh neg mom and an rh pos dad it is possible for your baby to be either rh pos or neg.
It will be necessary for the baby to tested after birth and administer Rhogam if he/she is rh positive. The odds of an rh neg baby in this scenario range from zero to 1 in 4.
