hi im huzna and im 32 weeks pregnant,well i had a blood check up and the doc told me my antibodies were positive and that i was having anti M ,i would like to know whether it is of any concern?

Answer: Hi Huzna, The presence of this antibody is quite common and it does not usually cause any problems during pregnancy. You may have the levels checked again during the pregnancy. There is a slight increased risk that the baby may develop jaundice after birth but it will be closely watched and checked for any signs of jaundice. Best wishes, Alex
