Has anyone in here had a miscarriage and have a negative blood type? Did your doctor immediately have you get the Rhogam shot? I'm very angry because after my first ultrasound I had just started bleeding and told my doctor this. He didn't mention the shot at all or the need for it. He said I could try to miscarry naturally (again no mention of the shot). I went in about a week and a half later-- and by this point and lost a lot of blood and thought most of the contents were out (although apparently not). He then said "oh did you go to the ER?". Um, no. No one told me to do that. He the sent me over to get a shot. From what I have read, I would have needed to get the shot immediately. I just saw they did blood work and I came back positive for antibodies. Which means he didn't give me the shot soon enough for it to have stopped the blood mixing and my body developing antibodies.
This was my first pregnancy and I'm a negative blood type (hubby is positive). I'm devastated that this will impact any future healthy babies all because the doctor was negligent. Anyone else have a similar experience? Or have negative blood with positive antibodies? What did you do?
Re: Miscarriage and Blood Type
On your next pregnancy they will just have to be more diligent with administering it.
