Thanks for writing to us.
The major problems of incompatibility occurs when mother is negative and father is positive and the baby turns out to be positive blood group
.That we call as Rh incompatibility. These problems too occur in advanced parity as the no of pregnancies a woman bears increases, as the antibody titres increse in mother's body which affects the baby.
Now a days, we have anti -D immunoglobulins
, which is given to mothers, if she is negative and father of baby is positive, after delivery and also antenatally, after abortion
, ectopic pregnancy; so that the exposure to the positive blood and formation of antibodies
can be prevented.
As, you and your husband are both positive, this problem will not occur.
But, there are some minor blood groups which we dont check routinely, can cause minor incompatibilities.
Also, as you are o positive and baby turns out to be A positive, as husband is A positive, there is chance of ABO incompatibility, but these are generally minor reactions documented post natally.
So, dont take stress
Hope this information is useful to you.
