Today I got the Rhogam shot. It is a shot they give to mothers who have a negative blood type. It will prevent me from making antibodies for positive blood types, should my baby turn out to have one. If she does, then I will get another one after her birth. If I didn't get the shot, and my baby had a positive blood type then the next time I get pregnant the antibodies that I would create might attack and destroy the new baby if its blood type was postive. Pretty smart that they figured all this out I think. I would hate to be back in the day when they didn't know about this kind of stuff.
