    Default Hemolytic disease of the newborn

    Hi, not sure where to post this but I'm looking for anyone that's tested positive to this & then been retested to monitor levels & it's come back negative? I was told by the Dr that this can happen throughout pregnancy. I've got an appointment on Tuesday with the Dr to discuss these results... But has anyone else fluctuated between positive & negative during pregnancy.

    I was negative with my first born, they think this happened during labour.

    I'm testing positive to E & K cells

    Hi sorry MARTTC we went away on holiday this morning and have been busy.

    In my second pregnancy I was positive for Anti D, K, E. My probably can about from a bleed I had in the early stages of my pregnancy. My levels were initially high but dropped latter. I was closely monitored with blood tests and ultrasounds that specifically looked a blood flow. If your level (they call a tieter I think not sure about spelling) an amio can be recommended. was lucky to escape that.

    DS2 had IUGR and was delivered at 34 weeks. They think that his IUGR was in part related to the antibodies but also to me developing pre eclampsia.

    Feel free to ask any questions hopefully I can answer them. I was really concerned when I found out but things travelled relatively smoothly and DS2 prob would have gotten further along if it wasn't for the pre eclampsia. Though he would have been small. Fingers crossed that your levels stay low and you have a smooth pregnancy.

    The weird thing is, I tested positive.... Had a repeat test & I'm negative. I understand the levels can change but I'm confused how I have completely gone negative & wondering if it means I'm in the all clear or if I'm still at risk.

    If I have this now, I'll always have it yeah? I hate the thought of being induced... My first labour was 3.5 hrs & intense, induction process freaks me out.

    The ob freaked me out talking about severe disability & death!

    Ill update here after my appointment with the ob on Tuesday

    Thanks
