28 Weeks Pregnant

Hard Jabs And Punches

week28Your baby continues to be active, and those first few flutters of movement have given way to hard jabs and punches that may take your breath away. If you notice a decrease in movement do a Fetal Kick Count: check to see if your baby moves at least 10 times in an hour. If less, talk to your doctor.

Remember those blood tests that your doctor recommended early on in your pregnancy? At that time one thing that was measured was the Rh factor, a substance found in the red blood cells of most people. If you’re Rh negative but your baby is Rh positive, there is potential for your baby to have health problems, such as jaundice and anemia. Your doctor can prevent these problems by giving you a vaccine called Rh immune globulin at 28 weeks and again after delivery.
