My nurse left a message saying I had a positive RH antibody screen. She wanted to know when I had Rhogam last. I am so upset. I have known I was RH negative for years. I have had a shot of Rhogam with every single one of my miscarriages, which should have prevented me from developing RH antibodies. I called her back and left a message and even left one for my RE's office too. I am freaking out.
Everything I'm reading says that if you have already developed the antibodies it's too late to get the shot and you could have some serious pregnancy complications. Of course there is a chance the baby is also negative so my fingers are crossed for that. Unfortunately we don't know my husband's blood type. But if I already have the antibodies he must be RH positive, right?
Anyone with experience with this? Thanks.
UPDATE: False positive! Even though I got Rhogam 6 months ago there was still a tiny bit in my system, not even enough to measure. So that's why it looked like I had a positive antibody screen. So I'm good, I don't have any antibodies. I don't need Rhogam until 28 weeks or if I start bleeding. Wish her message had not scared me so much but then again no matter what she said, even "call me" would have made me freak out! DH and I are so relieved. Oh and we confirmed he is A+, got the info from the blood bank he donated to awhile back.
