ObGyn When do we test the fetus Rh Status?

OK I have this question that is just out of curiosity;
it is regarding pregnancy . mom being RH negative and those stuffs!
about determining fetus RH ;

1- do we do it routinely for ALL fetuses ? or just for those with Rh negative mom?

2- if for fetus of Rh negative mom, when we do it? during labor?! at 16-20 week that we do triple test?

I read somewhere, if mom is Rh- and non sensitized we should give Rhogam during delivery and also at 28w. so I assume we must know fetus is Rh positive otherwise why giving this RHogam?
