    No just the ones with negative blood type, yes it hurts as far as the midwife says but last time i had it i had just given birth and didnt feel it.

    Now they give it at 28wks.

    It hurt when I had it with DD, but I am a wuss with injections so I tense up which doesn't help :roll:

    I have mine on 19 Dec, dreading it - have to have it again, not sure at how many weeks though :think:

    Only had it once with DD at 33 weeks (she has a neg bloodtype so didn't ned it after she was born) , got told by my midwife this time that I should have had it twice with her - that's reassuring!!

    I am determined to be brave though - I'll have bloodtests at the same time (well not exactly the same time, but you know what I mean!) and I am getting better with them so I have no excuse!

    Ive got to have it at 28 weeks, 32 weeks and then once its born...

    needles dont bother me though as I have spent most of me life being treated as a pin cushion and needing drips etc... :roll:

    ahh ok...

    well my husbands parents 'think' he is negative too, if he is we will only have negative babies, but the hosp dont check so will be having the anti d just in case anyway...

    Also my father in law is a microbiologist and he says it is all overkill anyway, but better to be safe than sorry and there are no negative side effects from having anti d

    I had my first Anti D injection last Friday. I got it in my bum and it was fine :D Stung a bit when it went in then bum was a bit sore for a while after. Don't worry too much, it will be no where near as bad as you are expecting!
