    I'm o-, and have been worrying about the possible complications caused by this. Does anyone know what the risks are, and how I can find out if my baby (I'm 7wks pg) is in danger? I had a miscarriage about 8 years ago, but didn't know there was future ramifications...so I never went to the doctor. My 5 year old daughter is also Rh-, and I'm wondering if this is why it took so long for me to concieve successfully again? Is it possible that now I can only carry Rh- babies. I'd appreciate your input.

    Since you did not recieve medication after your miscarriage there could be complications if your blood mixes with the babys blood (only if the baby is +...If the baby is - then there is no harm)...Does this baby have the same father as your daughter?...If she is negative also then it is a good chance that the father is negative too...If my information is correct then if you are - and the father is + then the baby is passed on one of each a - and a + and the + outweighs the - so the baby would be +...I am O- and my son is + so I know for sure his dad is +...I am pregnant with my 2nd child but I am not too worried because I recieved the RhoGam during the pregnancy and after my son was born...And I will also recieve it both times this pregnancy...If your daughter,the miscarriage,and this pregnancy have the same father I would tell you not to worry...But here is a page with a lot of info on it...Hope this helps...
