If your body’s not making Rh antibodies at 28 weeks, you’ll likely get a shot of Rh immunoglobulin (RhIg, aka RhoGAM), which will prevent you from making the antibodies and prevent harm to your next baby (if you have one). You’ll get another RhIg shot within 72 hours of the birth (if baby is Rh-positive) and any time your and baby’s blood may have mixed (which isn’t too likely).
If you are producing Rh antibodies, then RhIg won’t help. Instead, your OB will test your blood regularly to check the antibody levels. If they get high, you might need more tests to check on baby’s health. If baby’s at risk for problems, he might need to be delivered early..
and yes you need to take the shot..
