    I had my first one a few weeks back. It did sting a bit!

    It's 3 in all I think.

    Worst thing is having it in your arse - dignity outta the window then :oops: :?

    It's for pregnant women who have a rhesus negative blood type. I'm O RH Negative. Something to do with possibility that our babies might be RH positive, where our bodies would develop antibodies against their blood.

    My surgery did mine in my arm- they would have had more to aim for if they had went for my back side :rotfl:

    I had one at 28 weeks and have another at 34 weeks.
    It stang me quite a bit :(
    But is more essential as it's my second. Just had to have the one jab with my first. (She has the same blood type as me so I didn't need one when she was born)

    I had bloods taken at 28 weeks and found that I didn't need it.. something to do with antibodies, so I didn't need one then or at 36 weeks.

    Ryan was a+ to my a- so I had to have it after I had him.

    The emergency one I had to have at about 23 weeks was because I got pushed over pretty badly onto my bump while I got caught in the middle of a fight at the pub I was working at.

    I had the 1st one at 28 weeks then the 2nd at 34 weeks and if baby's blood group is +, I will have to have another one within 72 hours of his birth. Not sure if it's the same for everyone though.
