Am I over thinking this situation?

So I have a daughter from a previous relationship, and she’s type O. Well, her donor left the picture, and her dad has been around since I was four months pregnant with her. Fast forward three years, we got pregnant. He’s type A- and I am O+. I miscarried two days ago at seven weeks. I’ve got a feeling that baby took his blood type, and my body fought it off. Am I overthinking, or could this happen? I’m just trying to find some sort of answer, even if there isn’t one I guess… thank you.

That is something you should ask your health care provider

I’m O+ with oldest and youngest O+ and my middle child is A-

That would only happen if you were rh negative and had previously carried an rh positive child.

It’s if you’re negative and then idk what week it’s in but you go for a needle that essentially confuses your body for a bit

That wouldn’t happen unless it was the opposite. My mom is O+ and dad is O-. My mom carried me to term and I came out O-. Now I have two kids of my own and they’re both Rh Positive like their dads, so I had to have the Rhogam shot with each of them because I’m Rh Negative.

Sometimes things that we can’t explain just happen. Your blood type would have no factor in you miscarriage. That would only happen if you were Rh negative. I am so very sorry for you loss.

I have heard of that happening when the mom is A-. I am A- and I have to get a shot every time I am pregnant or miscarry so my body doesn’t start attacking the baby. My son is AB+ and I was able to carry full term no issues the only thing that happened was my son became jaundice after birth because at some point during delivery our blood crossed. If you are worried I would ask you dr they might be able to give you some more info.

Yes it could have happened because your anti bodies thought it’s a foreign object being your partner has a negative blood group. You will need to have an Anti D shot before trying again otherwise it will continue to happen.

I’m 0 negative and my partner 0 postive i have to have anti D throughout my pregnancies all my children are 0+

You got it turned around sweets. This happens when mom is negative blood type, previous rh positive baby…second baby would have problems from RH- mom having the old antibodies.

I’m rh negative but they don’t give you the shot until 28 weeks. Miscarriages just happen sometimes because something wasn’t right. Chromosomes missing etc. it’s sad I have been there twice. Hang in there!!! Hugs to you!

Usually only if you are rh negative. Your blood and the babies blood usually won’t mix that early. If you ever notice spotting early they can give you the rhogram shot if they suspect that’s why you’re miscarrying but I’m O- and I’ve only gotten the rhogam shot at 28 weeks and after I gave birth if my baby was positive. That’s when your blood may mix with the baby’s through the umbilical cord

If your bleeding you have to get the shots earlier then 28 weeks

You need to talk to your doctor about this, if your concerned. It’s more likely that there is no specific reason for your loss. It’s common to suffer a miscarriage and as heart breaking as it is there usually isn’t a reason for it that can be pin pointed or blamed.

I have 4 rounds of shots and at 28 weeks too your doctor will tell you or check and see if. It does fight against your baby

No I’m O+ as well I thought that happens with RH- people

I’m O- and had to have the rhogam shot with my pregnancies and miscarriages. Was also told if baby is born O- as well I would have to have the shot after delivery but they are O+. I had 2 kids (age 12 and 1 at the time) then miscarried in jan. 2018 and had a tubal pregnancy rupture in June of 2018 and had to have tube removed now I’m pregnant and due in January with my 3rd. Its hard going though a miscarriage and sometimes we don’t know the reasons why but don’t give up. Youre in my thoughts and prayers sweetie.
