Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

rh factor

I just found out recently that my blood type is O- which is great when I have the baby and can donate again. But it also means I am Rh negative. My husband is B+. I was just wondering if the RhoGam shots (i think that is what they are called.) hurt? I am terrified of shots and normally realize they don't hurt so bad after but I heard they hurt. Is that true?

I am Rh negative with O neg blood type, as well.  I received a Rhogam shot at 9 weeks and even though the nurse called it the "peanut butter shot" and said it would hurt, I didn't feel a thing.  In fact, my flu shot hurt worse! Good luck!
Thank you so much :) I have to get my flu shot as well :( lol but I guess if its for the good of the baby I can suck it up :) Thank you again!
