During your pregnancy your blood will be routinely tested tp make sure that there are no anti-D antibodies in your blood. These tests are done at the first booking, at 28 weeks and at 34 weeks of pregnancy.At 28 weeks you will be offered and encouraged to have a routine injection of anti-D to prevent anti-D antibodies from forming.
