Pregnancy and Rh factor
The most beautiful time of expectation of the child is connected not only with touching representations of the future happy mother, father and relatives and close people. Often the expectation of motherhood is accompanied by all sorts of fears.
To one of such include the fear of conflict between the rhesus blood and the course of pregnancy. But, as a rule, fears in our heads arise from ignorance. Let’s figure this out.
Rhesus factor (or Rhesus antigen) is a protein body of blood on the outside of the erythrocyte (a cell of blood enriching with oxygen). According to statistical data, about 20% of women have a negative Rh factor of blood. This means that these women do not have protein on oxygen cells. The presence or absence of protein on oxygen cells is determined when analyzing for the blood group.
Of course, it is important to know your group and Rh factor from childhood. This is especially important for expectant mothers, since rhesus is a kind of blood property of an immunological nature, inherited and being unchanged throughout the life of a person.
Do not get scared immediately if you have a negative Rh factor. After all, by and large, it’s just your individual sign. After all, we are calm about the fact that people have different skin color or a section of eyes.
That's why at the first visit to the gynecologist you will be offered to donate blood for analysis to the blood group and Rh factor. There are a lot of medical nuances about which you will be surely told. For example, if the mother and father of the future child have negative blood rhesus, there is no reason to worry, with a high probability that the baby will have the same blood factor.
Why is Rhesus conflict? It's not a secret for anyone that our body has different ways of dealing with foreign bodies. The same happens when a fetus with a positive Rh factor appears in the maternal body with a negative Rh factor. You will not notice any visible changes during pregnancy. But inside the mother's organism there is a constant conflict with the stranger. Moreover, through the placenta this conflict passes into the still immature fetal body.
The likelihood of Rhesus-conflict increases from pregnancy to pregnancy. As a rule, when bearing the first-born, such incompatibility and, as a consequence, conflict, are extremely rare. As a preventive aid, modern medicine offers a variety of ways, including the introduction of special antibodies into the mother's body.
Here it is written about if the woman has a negative rhesus .. and if it is positive in the mother, and the father is negative; is it possible for the child to have a negative Rh factor and, as a consequence, Rh-conflict. or it threatens only women with; Rhesus?
At the girlfriend because of this problem 2 miscarriages, and the most terrible, that doctors with arms or hand plant and speak what to make nothing can (
At me negative and at the husband a positive rhesus. But the baby took my rhesus. Therefore, she became pregnant and gave birth without problems. Only to me antibodies all the same introduced just in case.
I have blood 2-, and my husband has 2 +, but there were no problems with bearing. The main thing is to track the number of antibodies and generally monitor your condition. Then everything will be fine. I did not get an injection of immunoglobulin during pregnancy or after childbirth. My daughter has my rhesus.
