Patient : My 9-weeks pregnant wife tested positive for antibodies in her blood. We're not sure what our blood types are. The nurse who spoke with us scared the living heck out of us. They're going to refer us to a specialist. I did some research, but I'm still not fully aware of the risk it involves. We're not certain if my wife received the anti-d injection after the birth of our 1st and only child. How common is this, and is it too late to receive d-injection to get rid of antibodies, or would this certainly lead to having a fetal blood transfusion done? It just doesn't make sense. Thanks.
