You get the shot in your behind. My friend had that, and thats what she had to do. She said it stung for just a min. Dont worry I would think the nurse gives you the shot, but Im not 100% about that. Dont worry, you will be fine..Good luck

I'm A- and had to get the shot too. It didn't hurt and doesn't take any longer than a flu shot. The nurse gave it to me in the hip. I was told that sometimes the spot where the shot is given could be a bit sore afterwards, but wasn't the case for me. You will also get a second shot within 72 hours after birth. There is no need to worry. You will be just fine. Take care!

Hi KKKK,

Don't worry about the shots as they are a bit of a bother, but so very worth it. The medicine keeps your blood from making antibodies to Rh+, so that your baby and future babies are not in any danger. That's such a blessing. In the past (just 35 and more years ago), Rh- mothers married to Rh+ dads often lost their 3rd or 4th babies because of the blood incompatibility that had built up in the earlier pregnencies. Any othe babies they had after that were also usually doomed, too. It was so sad. Rhogam became avaiable in about 1970.

Appreciate the shots!!

Wishing you well - Barbara
