    Sorry for your loss. I too had a miscarriage at 8 weeks a year ago because of my RH neg. bloodtype. I am now 22 weeks pregnant. I am getting a Rhogam shot at 28 weeks. Im pretty sure they last aprox. 12 weeks. I then get another shot after he is born. You did get the shot after your miscarriage, Right? Good luck and try to read up on the facts about having RH neg, blood. It can be a tricky thing to understand at first. Also make sure to have your blood work done monthly to check for antibodies. This is super important!!
