What blood type causes problems in pregnancy?

I’m newly pregnant and have some underlying conditions. I have also heard that certain blood types are more prone to pregnancy complications. Does anyone have any experience with this?

RH- if the father is RH+

RH- isnt even that bad. They will actively give you whatever shots needed to make it as safe as possible for both of you. I’m RH- and I’m on pregnancy number 3, never an issue. Just stay open with your doctor in case of any bleeding is all.

It has to do with the + and - in the blood.
For example, I am rh- so I had to have shots so my rh+ daughter and my blood wouldn’t mix during labor.

Rh negative if the father is a positive but it is not a huge deal. This is my second pregnancy and I have just had to have the rhogam shots throu out the pregnancy and one after with absolutely no issues! If you know you are a negative blood type just tell your doctor and they will order the testing at I believe 28 weeks just to double check what type you and the baby are do the shots if needed.

Rh negative. Both pregnancies i was given Rhogam shots as soon as i gave birth.

It wont cause issues if you have regular office visits. They will draw your blood & dads if he doesnt know his blood type & give you a shot if necessary. They will then test the baby after birth and based on the babies blood, possibly give you & the child another shot. I went through this.

RH negative only a concern if u have a bleed during pregnancies I had a bleed with my first pregnancies twice and was given the shot twice x

My blood is AB+ and my ex is RH-. My pregnancy with my son I had antibodies due to his blood type and just needed monthly blood draws. My daughter is to a different man and I needed it as well because I will always have an antibody now. The most that could happen is you’d body trying to fight off the baby, but they will regularly check to make sure both of you are okay

Rh-Negative! I have to get the needle everytime during pregnancy!

I’m O negative and didn’t know it until after I was having a miscarriage got the rhogam shot and went on to have a healthy pregnancy so far just 1 period after my MC

Rh- sadly I am rh- and I had a subchorionic hemorrhage with my last 2 pregnancies. They gave me rhogam for it, and throughout (cant remember at what week though). Depending on the blood type of baby. You may or may not need it. My oldest daughter is O+ and my son (3rd child) is also O+ and I had to have rhogam with both of them. Weirdly enough, my youngest daughter (middle) is O-. I did not need it with her.

RH- and didnt know it until I had my miscarriage :frowning: I went on to have a healthy pregnancy immediately after tho and had 6 rogam shots (I bled during the healthy pregnancy which is why I needed so many)

It’s any type of negative bloody. I’m O- they give you shots throughout the pregnancy. It’s incase bub has positive blood and mixes through yours during pregnancy or birth

R h negative if you don’t get the rogham shot it can make both you and the babies incredibly sick

Rh Negative requires Rhogam injections. I’m Rh Negative and had it with all of mine (2 full-term and 3 miscarriages). It’s just an inconvenient shot in your ass with a liquid that’s the consistency of Karo corn syrup.

Also, if the man is Rh Positive, you really need to keep on top of those Rhogam shots. My husband is Rh Positive and I’m not sure what my ex/oldest’s donor is, but my CNM made sure to make me stay on top of them.

Rh negative is my sister blood type! Dr told her it would be difficult to have a second baby that a second baby would probably need a blood transfusion! Her baby is now 38 yrs old so I’m sure things would be different now as this was so long ago!

Im Rh- and the father is positive all they did in both my pregnancies is give me a Rogham shot at 28 weeks and after birth it will be the same with this pregnancy

Are you talking about being RH-? When RH- your body can develop antibodies against the fetus if there is a possibility of being RH+
Because of this, they administer the Rogam shot to you during pregnancy.

I am RH- both my children are RH+ . I’ve had the shot & zero complications during my pregnancies.
