Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
Since you have a history of AB incompatibility, there is every chance of having this incompatibility in this pregnancy. You need to avoid all the stressful activities to reduce the chances of bleeding during pregnancy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
