Hi everyone I slipped and fell today on my way into work on some wet tiles. I landed on my left hip (already a bit dodgy!)-it hurt quite a bit but I had no abdominal pain or bleeding and my baby is still moving so work sent me home to rest.
I called my midwife because my mum was panicking and she said it should be fine, then said , "actually, what's your blood type?". I told her I didn't know it and she said that if I felt baby moving and had no pain everything would be fine.
I'm happy my baby is ok but I don't see what relevance my blood type has?! Any ideas?
I've looked through my notes and I can't find my boos group anywhere-I assumed that they'd have told me/written to me following booking in bloods? Oh dear-looks like I need to investigate further! Both my parents are positive blood groups if that makes any difference x thanks for everyone's help btw x
I'm rhesus negative. They'd have made it really, really obvious if you were <bitter memories of many, many additional injections....including the ones when I fell over on my hip>., but, yeah, that's why the midwife questioned you.
They would have spoken to you about it and if you're at the stage of feeling movements (so I'm guessing 20+ weeks?) then you'd probably have been told to book the anti-d injection, mine was due at 28 weeks, I assume it's roughly the same for everyone.
Thank you all! I'll definitely ring and check but I'm pretty sure I'd know. I keep everything I've been given/sent in a file and I re-read my nuchal screening letter and there was nothing. I'll rest up and try to watch my step in future!
