Rh Injection Weirdness???

HeatherMac - August 26

Okay ladies, I need your help.

I had my Rhogam injection today...and I haven't felt right since. I can't put a finger on it, but I feel VERY strange. I'm TOTALLY exhausted and just feel like I can't get comfortable. I also had a little cramping, so I called OB about it. He said if it lasted more than an hour to call...that quit, thankfully, but I truly feel VERY ODD.

Anyone else have this?? If so, how quickly does it pass??

Thanks everyone...

HeatherMac - Sorry, I have no experience with this but I just wanted to say that I hope you feel better soon and everything is ok. I hope you can rest and get some reassurance from your ob. Karen

Hi Heathermac

I would always err on the side of caution and go back to the doctor or ER and be checked over. If you feel something is up, it's a good idea to listen to that feeling and be relieved rather than ignore it and suffer with something. Good luck, feel better soon.

I looke up rhogam side effects in my nurse book and it did not mention any side effects to the fetus. Only fever and malaise for mom. I hope all is well.

Ladies...THANK YOU...I feel much better.

I ended up calling OB again last night and he sent me to be monitored...and it turns out I have a WICKED bacterial infection that would NOT have been found had they not done a pelvic! So, with as totally uncomfortable as THAT was, I am glad I went to the hospital. I felt odd going when I had no real concrete symptoms, but all in all, I'm glad I went. Turns out, this particular infection, which is extremely common in pregnancy because of all the hormones and fluctuations, can trigger premature birth!! So, I'm on an antibiotic and should be fine!

So, let me again THANK YOU for all your support and encouragement!!

Now, Bean and I are going to get some sleep!!
