obg,virus

hmm..finally our obg[obstetrics and gynaecology] postings[of 6 weeks] will be over today..it was quite a good posting where we learned many things and saw some really good cases...
we had internals on wednesday and my case was a lady[obvious] with a Rh -VE pregnancy[which means her blood grp is O-ve and her husbands is B+ve]...the problem in such pregnancies is that the fetus being Rh+ve[which acquires husbands blood grp-Mendelian principle] triggers a immune reaction in the mother which eventually results in its[fetus] rbc[red blood cell] destruction[similar to what happens in a mismatched blood transfusion] resulting in serious complications like jaundice in the baby...my patient had similar complication which unfortunately resulted in delivery of a dead baby:(...hope next time she conceives a healthy child..:))...
my pc is not working from a few a days due to some worm attck....feel like am in a jail....now at my aunts place and trying to blog here as much as i can:)...

Hey

Usually they check for the Rh factors during the first trimester of pregnancy right?
So then, injections can be given which can prevent the RBC destruction ???
