I am RH negative. I got mine at 28 weeks which is standard at my doctors office. They had a marked envelope with my paperwork for the shot in my chart (I had to go to the hospital to get my shot) after my first appointment that said Rhogam on it that way they knew when I hit 28 weeks it was time for me to go. You have to get one with each pregnancy and then after delivery if the baby doesn't have RH negative blood as well. I got lucky with my daughter and she is A- like me so I didn't have to get the second shot.
I'm O negative also and I got it at 28 weeks. I've noticed that there's a flourescent orange sticker on my chart that says "Rh Negative"...I guess as a reminder to them. I think you have to get it during and after each pregnancy because I had one last year right after my m/c also.
I had mine at 28 weeks also.

I've had 2 this pregnancy as well. At 4 weeks because I had some bleeding (and have had a m/c so thought I might m/c again) and then again at 28 weeks. Strange they didn't have that in your chart.
I would maybe call today and ask them. Did you ladies get your shots at the doctors office? They made me do mine at the hospital because they had to draw blood first and do a lab work-up before I could do it. If that's the case for you then the doctor may want to know now so that maybe they can be prepared to give you the shot on Monday.
What is this shot for? Never heard of it...

You might want to call and mention it. For my first pregnancy, I went to a smaller clinic and they didn't carry the Rhogam in their office, they had to put in an order for it and wait a few days for it to get there. This time around, I'm at a larger clinic which is connected to the hospital and I've been able to get the shot right then and there because they keep it on hand.
