If both the husband and wife are rh negative then baby will definitely be rh negative too. Baby will never be Rh positive.You must get your husband"s blood group checked as you are rh negative and you have already had an abortion earlier. This is a major factor responsible for recurrent abortions.

Should I get pregnant agin? The fetus has not been vialble since week 7 and I started spotting two weeks ago. I would now be 12 weeks pregnant. The doctor that I saw that time called me 10 days ago to tell me that I was RH-negative and to wait till my next period before I get labs done and get my RHOgam shot. I didn t even know prior to this that I was RH negetive or what it ment. Reading up on the RH factor everything I read said 72 hours after. I went for a second opinion and he recomended to get it now, almost two weeks after I started spotting. I still will follow up with my lab work, to find out if I have the antibodies capable of attacking an RH-positive fetus, and if I do How dangerous is getting pregnant again?

Dear Sirs,

My name is Mona Mohsem and i am 33 years old. My blood group is O- with high antibodies titer. My husband is O+. I have 4 kids and one abortion. My last kids suffer from high jaundice and blood heamolysis due to the high antibody titer (RH disease).

Recently we did genotyping for my husband in Qatar and he was heterozygous. Therefore there is a chance to have an O- baby without any problems for the baby during pregnancy.

I want to do IVF to select an O- baby boy "to choose the sex and the blood group" before pregnancy by PGD or other ways, is that possible in your hospital? or can you help me to choose a hospital that can offer me this procedure.

Looking forward to hear from you.
