This subject is very intresting to me as well as I am rh-  and it is totaly recesive, bothe my parents are rh+.  I think I have a great aunt who is rh-.... (am 100% Nothern European).

  I have been wondering about the rhogam shot, I am not planing on having kids quite yet, but still the idea that I could have one miscarage after the other isn't very appealing so I would probably get the shot after the first rh+ child....how far along in a pregnancy do the antibodies start to produce?  I mean if for some reason I would lose the first child that happened to be rh+ lets say in the first two weeks of pregnancy, and not even know that I was preganant, is that enough time for my body to reject future rh+ children?

I also have low blood presure and low body temp....for me it has to do with a low functioning thyroid.  It is within "normal" range according to the doctors, but Dr. Colicci (worked with Dr. D for many years) sais that it isn't good enough for her.  So she is helping me fix it

I wonder about the low blood pressure thing sometimes... I am extremely energetic and hyperactive and if I had naturally higher blood pressure then I might be more susceptible to overly high blood pressure due to my workaholic nature. So possibly it balances out well with me. If I wasn't so hyper then perhaps it would fall too low? It's just a thought though - I'm no doctor!

Hi friends,

I am also A_ve blood and have my pressure and temperature lower than the "normal." My body temperature is around 97+ degrees and pressure is usually (114/76 or 110/70). I am perfectly fine these readings. What we are often led to consider "normal" are just conventional values and based on averages. I firmly believe that we all need to take note of one's normal values and monitor them for any significant changes, and not the conventional "normal". This is not only for temp and pressure but also for other parameters. For example, the moment my body temperature starts climbing up from "my normal" value (which is well below the conventional normal), I need to watch it closely as something might have gone wrong.

a ha... Thanks...
BTW my daughter is O-  and her BP is just 90 /60- 100/65 and she has low tempt as well.
We normally joke it is cause she eats very hunter(gatherer like- since we saw that Amzon indians often had BP around 90/60

Isn't that the same thing as an antibody? Any "memory/storage spot" would have to be in the form of something physical.


That is my understanding of the situation. If you are exposed either to a microbe or to a fragment of one in an immunity shot the body has to have some memory/storage somewhere to record the stimulus and the appropriate antibody. The key here is the body has to be able to respond quickly in order to crush the infection. Otherwise there would be no point in having immunity shots, you could just let the body muddle through on its own.

In regards to the Rhogam shot, one of my great-aunts had this following four miscarriages. Her husband is A rh-positive and it took nearly ten years for the doctors to notice this as the cause.

This is exactly what happened to me. After my second miscarriage I was sent to a specialist for some tests. In my interview with him afterwards nothing was ever mentioned about my blood type nor was I ever asked about the blood type of the father. Neither did any of the doctors who were involved in my miscarriages seem to consider blood type as the cause. In the process of miscarriage there is a lot of blood, which is certainly an event where the blood of the mother will mix with the blood of the fetus. Since no shot was given I assume antibodies developed as a result of the blood types mixing.

This may have been a case of "Dr. Somebody Else" was supposed to do the test or ask the question -- your original doc ought to have done it, but he figured the second doc would do it; your second doc thought that surely your first doc would have done it; and any other doctors would have thought that either Dr. #1 or #2 would have done it...

Sometimes it can be dangerous to assume.

You're probably right, Katsy Wish I knew then what I know now. But that's life.
