Common Questions and Answers about Blood type o rh pos

blood

I'm b neg too and got anti d injection at 30wks only because i bled a tiny bit.but didnt get one after she was born cos she was o neg blood type. Im due second baby in 4wks and have had an awful lot of complications this time.i asked them do i need the ante d and they said none of the complications are to do with my blood and i havent been bleeding so i dont need it. My 1st child turned out perfectly healthy and as far as i know this baby is, shes just huge though.
The first I had a miscarriage...so I dont know what blood type the baby had...my other two are both O Negitive...But they gave me the shot anyway...they said to help protect the next baby if there was another pregnancy.
I am o negative blood type as well and i didnt miscarry i only got my first shot at 28 weeks. i dont why they said its your blood type. my doctor was more concerned about me then the baby.
This means that a child with type O blood could have parents with type A, type B, or type O blood (but not with type AB). Conversely, if two parents both have type O blood, all their children will have type O blood. Another medically important blood type is described in the Rh system. These genes were first discovered in the rhesus monkey, hence the designation Rh.
Hello cdc29, Just reading your question with regards to blood type. If the father is O pos and the the mother is A pos you can NOT produce an offspring that is B neg. Here is why, we will deal with the blood groups and leave out the Rh factor for simplicity (will explain that after).
means you make antibodies that circulate inside your system which don't harm you but can attack the Rh-pos. blood of your growing baby. (IF your baby is Rh-neg, theres no problem.) Your antibodies can cross the placenta & attack your babys blood. This can cause blood disease of the fetus or newborn. It can make your baby very anemic while still inside the uterus, & it can be very serious. The bright side is it's reaction is preventable.
hi again guys sorry for making another post, but i have just found out that my partner is RH Nevative, i know that its bad if the mother has this blood type, but what happens if the father has it? I dont really know enough about it to understand what it all means, just a bit worried as my friend told me to get it all checked out.
my blood type is o+ and my husband believes his is o-. i am 24 weeks and see my dr on the 14th... im just wondering would i have to take the shots like someone with rh- blood bc the fact im a pos blood type and if he is a neg type??
I am not sure what you are asking. "A neg." is a blood type. "A" blood type is actually AO. A person can have one of four blood types A (AO), B (BO), O (OO) or AB. Then you are also either positive or negative for rhesus factor. Your blood type does not change during pregnancy.
I just spoke to the nurse. She explained to me that RH is a factor in everyone's blood. You either have RH negative or RH positive. I am type O & negative RH (O neg.) Then she said we all have antibodies that are also pos. or neg. My antibodies are neg. as well and I will definitley need rhogam. She said it is around 20 weeks she thinks... she has to get back to me. She also said with neg./ neg. it doesn't matter what my DH is and I will have to have the shot. Neg.
So im A + in blood i was wondering will my baby have my blood type or my boyfriends blood? I keep forgetting to ask my doctor.
They ***** your finger and put your blood on some piece of papa that has something on it and if the blood reacts to either A,B,O or AB then that is how they determine your blood type...The RH factor.. (neg or pos) I don't know...maybe they do the same or they need a full blood test...
The different is the positive or negative blood types. The dif. being if you have a positive blood type and the baby has a negative, your body might try to fight the baby because it thinks it is an infection. There is a medication they can give you to make sure your body doesn't fight the baby. I hope that was what you wanted. I may be wrong but I got that from an ER dr. Good Luck.
I recently had a miscarriage. I was told that my blood type was O negative and my boyfriends A positive, causing the Rh Factor in my pregnancy, resulting in a miscarriage. The gave me a shot that is suppose to help prevent this from happening in my next pregnancies. This was my first pregnancy. My boyfriend and I really want to try again. How long should we wait before we try again? Has anyone had this happen in there pregnancy, and gone on the have healthy babies?
According to a Japanese institute that does research on blood types, there are certain personality traits that seem to match up with certain blood types. How do you rate? TYPE O You want to be a leader, and when you see something you want, you keep striving until you achieve your goal. You are a trend-setter, loyal, passionate, and self-confident. Your weaknesses include vanity and jealously and a tendency to be too competitive. TYPE A You like harmony, peace and organization.
did you explain to the nurse that you thought you were O-? You're blood type should be checked again now. Who's to say the A+ isn't wrong. If you are RH neg, and dad is pos, you'll need Rhogam again. I would call the dr and explain and ask to get blood type drawn again. Better to get a quick poke now, then to have your baby get hemolytic disease because you became rh sensitized.
I had my doc appt today, and they had to give me a shot becuz im o neg blood type. My question is what exactly does that shot do?
Hi, I believe that my blood type is RH. I know that I have the RH factor. I'm curious to see if any of us that have lyme and the same blood type, are at a high risk to develop lyme if bitten by a tick. Interesting. I might mention this to my LLMD next month. Keep us posted.
Sorry I read wrong, the shot is for negative blood group mums. I think if your a positive group your all good!
This is an injection you may need to prevent your RH neg. blood from attacking the baby if it has your husbands blood type. It is worth asking about.
Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
I've never heard of a woman with RH- blood not getting RhoGam because of her husband's RH being negative as well. But maybe this is a new development?! Oh... you are right. I just read a few sites on it. Well, if your husband is negative, then definitely don't take the shot!!! The things you learn here!!! Invaluable... don't take the shot if he's negative. Good luck, sweetie!
Two negative parents cannot have a positive child, though. Two type O parents cannot have a type A child. This explains it very well: http://www.biology.arizona.edu/human_bio/problem_sets/blood_types/markers.
Turns out my DH sperm has an increase of WBC that could be interfering with fertilization . Additionally he is A pos. blood and I am o neg which also makes it more challenging. Challenging is the key word here.... a BFP can still be achieved! My IVF transfer is Sunday. You just have to keep trying and eventually it will happen. Making sacrafices such as taking out caffeine completly from OUR diets and alcohol hopefully will do the trick.
donor, the liver is available now as long as the donor passes the many tests. As for the blood type, I am also type O. Type O blood is hardest because someone with O type can only receive O type blood. On the other hand Type O is good to have as a donor.
when i was preg with my son i got the shot but had to get a sec one when he was born bc his blood type was pos. which if and was left in my body and mixed in my blood stream it could of killed me there for i would not refuse it!!
you may need to know your husband's blood type. Perhaps he has o neg? (If you mix o-neg blood with another blood type the oneg will attack the other as something foreign. RH is what is positive or neg. (it's either there or it's not) and the 2 don't mix. Did you ever get the antibody test using your blood and your DH sperm? That can often tell you if there is a problem as well.
for instance, my son had it because he has A+ blood but I have O+ and somehow our blood mixed, and the antibodies in my blood attacked his red blood cells :(. It caused him to have what's caused ABO Incompatibility Jaundice...and his levels were dangerously high very soon after birth, which is how they noticed it immediately and were able to identify it. Rh incompatibility can cause it as well.
O pos is the universal donor.O neg is the universal recipient.........it takes only a few minutes to type and X match a blood sample, and the risk is too great not to do that.........kidney failure comes to mind first, plus shock. It isn't worth it, even in a critical patient.it could kill them and send them right over the edge............and it just takes a few munites to do it right.
