rh factor test and shot.

hello all
im around 24 weeks, and i just found out last doc visit that my blood type is A- now she said that i should get the shot for the rh - thing. but also she requested for me to do the rh - test again, as well as the gloucouse test. but i cant get in to the lab to do those tests yet. now do you think i should wait to do the rh test again before i get the shot??? . i cant get in to see her until my next appt 2 weeks from now. any help before tomorrow would be soo awsome cause im going in for me glocouse test tomorrow and i just wanna know if i should get the shot as well or wait on the rh test i already took a few months back.

Re: rh factor test and shot.

I am rh neg. Over here they take a blood draw at 28 weeks, just before giving the Anti D shot. That then gets repeated at 34 weeks. They have to take the blood to test BEFORE giving the shot nbecause that will change the results of the test.

Good Luck!
