    I'm AB- rarest blood of them all :D Have mine booked in for Wed 22nd Feb at 28 weeks. Only thing I'm scared of is that it's apparently going to be in my bum! :( Ouch!
    Having all my other bloods done (glucose etc) whilst there too so at least I'm having it all in one :)

    I'm o- and had it with my son at 28wks and after he was born (he's o+) and will have it again at 28 wks with this pregnancy. I got told it had to be in my bum but both times I had it done in the top of my arm but also apparently it can be done in the thigh!

    Just a precaution really I was worried about having it done but it's nothin really. Be warned you might have to ask whether you need it after you have the baby as the midwifes didn't realise that I was awaiting blood test results do didn't chase them!

    You dont have to have it in your bum, you can have it in your arm as long as it goes into a muscle.

    I had it in my bum the first time round, but in my arm ever since, I asked and she said they don't do it in the bum anymore, just the arm?? Don,t know whether that's just my hosp.

    Strange she said that, maybe she just prefers to do it in arm as its same as any other Itramuscular injection it can be done into either thigh muscle (bum) or arm, dosent really matter which, ive had it both and prefered arm anyway :)

    I had it at 28 weeks but didn't need it after the birth as she was A- also do may not have to do it next time as from what I can gather is a baby is negative because both parents are

    Had to have it with 3 of my kids, it doesn't hurt but it does sting and I had mine in my arm.
