For the last 3 months, my unborn baby was been receiving blood transfusions in the womb due to a complication.

Basically, my wife's blood attacked the baby's blood. My previous 2 kids have my blood, the baby has mine also and after 2 births my wife's blood has decided enough is enough and sees it as a hostile. There is a particular long name for it and we have been told it is rare with not much known about it.

There is no way to prevent it, only way to deal with it is to give the baby transfusions until they are strong enough to enter our world.

So, at 35 weeks, the baby was induced. 4 days later, the baby would still not come out. As another transfusion was due, the decision was made to have a section. 20 minutes later I was holding this tiny little baby girl.



We only got to see her for a few minutes then she was taken away to special care. After a week, we were allowed to take her home.

Without the wonderful care and attention from the NHS, we would have lost her.

2 weeks later, she is thriving and feeding like a beast. We still have a lot of work to do but we are confident she will be ok.

Right now, she is curled up in my wife's arms with a content look on her face.

Awww, sweet girl. She is beautiful.

When I first started reading I was thinking RH factor incompatibility; then you said it is rare- living in the U.K. RH would not be rare and your wife would have been given Rhogam injections with your first baby. I am curious about the name of the condition.

Congratulations

It's your wife's fault, she is pissed at you for knocking her up again.

I'm not sure of the specific name, it was long and had several words.

It was initially related to RH and she did receive the injections to prevent any problems. We were told Rh is common and most pregnancies are unaffected. Then they discovered an antibody but said it was fine and any complications are rare.

Then another antibody, and another. They couldn't explain how or why they had been created and were not there before. Again, they said it is rare that this happens but didn't think it would be a problem.

Then, the baby was in danger. The antibodies had multiplied to 600% above danger levels, which again they couldn't explain.

After the birth the doctors sat with us and said they didn't know what this was and last count, there were 5 or 6 antibodies that came from nowhere. There is only one specialist unit in my country, and this is where we had the baby.

These were specialists in this field and they still couldn't explain what happened, just said it was rare.

What a miracle. I have RH- blood and had to have the shots. My Grandma lost two babies due to RH factor. So glad your precious girl is thriving. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, I love that look on her face. The pic was taken just after a lot of tubes were disconnected and she was clothed for the first time. I think she is thinking 'What just happened?'
