    Hi All!

    I was at the hospital today to collect my blood results and my blood is Rhesus -, I had to have an injection today... They asked If I wanted It my leg or the top of my bum...(read a post on here that some girl had it in her leg and it hurt- ouch! ) So I opted for it in the top of my bum, I was really panicking but I suppose It was not that bad....I am glad I opted for the bum ha ha, I have an appointmant with my midwife 2moro and I am going to discuss this with her as the hospital were horrible... I asked them what this was for and they just gave me a leaflet told me to read it and if I have any problems call my midwife... So I will ask her tommore... But now I am left in suspense waiting to know why I had this Injection...... Can any1 advise me on this pleas eas the leaflet I have does not make much sence....

    Any Advice would be great...
    Love Danielle and Bubble xx

    Awww Bless ya. Im not sure to be honest and would suggest you go into www.Google.co.uk, sure you will find something there that would make more sense. Does my head in when they dont explain things to you clearly.

    I do sympathise with you as I have to have an injection everyday of heparain (anti clotting) my poor husband has to do it, and its put straight in the stomach. Only 165 to go...Agghhhrrrrrrrr. Had them since week 7...and got to have them the whole of the pregnancy. But small price to pay.

    Oh my God Ragna! That Is so awfull... I feel so sorry for you.... I hope ur ok! I am so worried about this Anti-D injection... They said 1st pregnancies are ok but 2nd pregnancies can be affected... I hope not as this is my 2nd pregnancy (1st one ended in a misacrriage at 7 1/2 wks ) The nurses said that there was nothing to be concerned about and that all will be ok... But for some reason I cant help but worry, These past few days with having a bleed and worrying for 2 days incase I had a miscarriage scared me and when I saw my baby yesterday I was so happy and today I have this awfull situation... I cant wait to see the midwife tomorro...

    So how have u been lately... Your not much further on than me I am Due Dec 1st when are u Due?

    Love Danielle and Bubble xx
    p.s Have u got a bump yet... I have a little one!

    Thanks for your concern. Bless ya. Im fine honestly. Im used to it now although at first I freaked at the thought of an injection in my stomach. Its just like a little pin prick most times, or a wasp sting. Tony my other half is a dab hand now at doing it, hes better than the district nurses I had as I rarely have bruises.

    I am nearly 17 weeks pregnant (due 26th November) but lost a baby at 11 weeks in 2003 after a Deep vein Thrombosis in my leg, hence the injections this time. So far so good, but obviously I live each day on a knife edge. I have five other children, and never had any problems with them at all, I guess my age probably dosnt help (40 aaghhhrrr)

    Im sure that my sister had the same as you, and I know of others (a fair amount too) that have gone on to have healthy babies who are now all grown up.


    Yes to the bump, its just appeared last few weeks and im pretty sure I can feel beanie bouncing about now. Waiting for the Scan at 20 weeks..Seems an age away.


    You take care of yourself & hope you find some more help all about the anti D.

    Awwwwww thanks for your reply Dani.

    And thank you too, cos I had forgotten bout my injection till I came on here...and we just rushed off to do it! Ouch. You have to do it within an hour of the previous day. Do most days..when we dont forget lol

    Hey...I think we should be able to have a Scanner in our living room so we can just have a go when we feel like it. I had the midwife come to my house other day to hear the heart beat, but apart from the fact the Doppler was crackly.....im a large lady (polite way of putting it) and apparently when you have flab, its harder for them to hear it, so sadly she couldnt find it, but Im not worried as I have regular movements now.

    Awwwww Beanie you will get used to them, it all comes just part of it. I started getting a bump around 14 weeks...and feeling baby too, although this is my 6th one..so apparently you do earlier. Seems an age since i gave birth to my eldest son Adam who is now 19 and 6 foot 4 lol lol lol

    Good Luck to you both.
