|Issy at 29 Weeks Pregnant|
If you don't realise the implications, it seems a little strange as to why this could have a negative impact on the baby. After all, O-Negative blood can be given to anyone. However, it's actually to prevent Issy's body from detecting something foreign in her and effectively attacking it, hence putting the baby at risk. It's great that modern medicine has a way of getting around these things.
So on top of going in for this, she also had to have a routine blood test and a few other standard checks such as blood pressure etc. Unfortunately the nurse struggled to find a vein in Issy's arm and then just sort of went for it resulting in a rather unpleasant experience for poor Issy. She bruises easily as it is so it was no surprise that she ended up with a nice shiny one at the "point of impact". Surprisingly, she also had to endure a blood pressure test in the same arm AFTER the blood test. Ouch!
