Really scared after blood test

So I had my bloods taken at 11weeks and my Mw just called to say my antibodies test came back inconclusive... I'm getting them redone tomorrow but I'm really scared now 🙈 She told me not to worry but I can't help it.. I just don't want it to harm my baby!! Has anyone else had anything like this and them it came back ok? Thanks

Are you rhesus negative?

It sounds like they just couldn't read the results and need to re do the test. Or didn't stick the correct labels on or something.
I had to have fortnightly blood tests in pregnancy and they had to re do quite a few!

I had negative antibodies identified at 28 week bloods and they just monitored me closely. They'd phone if it was something like that. Doesn't sound like it is

I have no idea they didn't tell me! My blood type O and I used to give blood so I'm sure they would of found it before now if I did 🤔

I am rhesus negative and had antibodies with all of my pregnancies. Sometimes reaching high levels and still all was good with the baby. . Try and relax. .

I had this - (made worse by fact that during blood test to reassure me that I wouldn't have to do it again I think! midwife said these always come back fine don't worry, we only contact you if it's something terrible!!) I got a letter saying I needed more done, spent two days in a panic convinced my baby had 5 heads or that they'd uncovered an incurable terminal illness, got there and turns out they'd lost a vial of blood somehow.

Hope it's all fine, call your midwife for more info! xxx

My first bloods came back inconclusive (I am rhesus negative) but the second bloods taken were fine.

Please try to not worry.
