    I have A negative and I lost my son at 16 weeks due to Rh factor. I was told as soon as i concieve again if my babys father has a positive blood type i will need to get a shot but from what I have been told they dont give it to you until 16 weeks or so. Have you had your progesterone checked during pregnancy?? Low progesterone can cause miscarriages in early pregnancy. If this is the fact your doctor can give you a pill or cream to use during the first trimester.
