I am RH-.
I had a tiny bit (think the width of a pencil mark about .75 inch long) inside of clear discharge last Wednesday. called doctor went in on Friday and got an ultrasound (moved by regular big ultrasound up to 18 weeks), cervix was fine, placenta was close (so marginal placenta). I forgot to ask about the rhogram shot.
This saturday night, got another round of spotting... this was different. Brown discharge (very mucus like) about the size of a pea when i wiped. Then slight pink about the size of a pea on another wipe about an hour later. Then, nothing until last night, where I had a very tiny amount of brown discharge on my pantyliner, but nothing when I wiped.
called dr again today to ask if I should keep calling about spotting, what amount I should call about and if I needed the Rhogram shot.
She said, that generally, she would not recomend it unless it was actual blood (not brown) and at least the size of a quarter on a pantyliner or it was flowing like a period. She said she would give it to me if I wanted it to make me feel better, and then give it again at 28 weeks as it will not do anything bad.
Anyways- it made me feel like I was an idoiot for asking. Anyways-- I called DH and he says why not take it?
I can call back and ask to make an apt to take it, would you?
Why or why not?
Note-- I am leaning towards no as it seemed like she thinks it is medically un-needed not to mention that if I was sensitizied I would likely have been from the other discharge/spotting that happened longer than 72 hours ago.
Other info. I know for a fact that DH is +, and our first son is +. I had rhogram at 28 weeks and after birth last time, am not sensitized (up until now) and had no issues with the shot.
