Blood type o rh negative

Common Questions and Answers about Blood type o rh negative


Avatar f tn From what I understand (and I could be wrong) its not about being o negative or a negative or whatever, its about lacking the rH factor making you rH negative. If they had found that your blood was rH negative, they would have tested dad's blood too. If he is also negative. No issues. Negative is a recessive trait so if dad was positive, baby would be positive and the difference in you and baby is what would cause issues. Hope this helps a little.
Avatar n tn The mother would pass on an O (Rh-d) and the father would have to pass on a B (Rh-d) to give you the blood type BO (Rh-neg). Any time you have a A or B with an O it is always going to be that letter (A or B group that is dominate as I said previous the O is not having nothing on your Red Blood Cells). Hope I didn't confuse you to much.
Avatar f tn They only give you O type blood if they have to because its a neutral blood type and your body wont reject it.
3198629 tn?1367038423 Umm, my sister had to have a needle when she was pregnant with her first because she had a negative blood type and the father was a positive. My question is, I don't know what blood type my fiance is and I'm O+, but I was under the impression that if you were positive the fathers blood type didn't matter, is that true? I don't want my body to attack the baby..
5889951 tn?1380316047 I was discussing with my sons father who is o negative blood type and I am o negative blood type would my son be o negative as well? If anyone has any info they could share with me I would be very appreciative.
Avatar f tn You mean Rh negative. This means your Blood doesn't contain the Rhythm protein. It has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with your Blood type.
1230912 tn?1273492770 ) So I guess my question is how many of you on the board have RH negative blood? Does being RH negative with MS have any cause/effect on the situation? Thank you all knowledgeable ones!
Avatar f tn 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??
8274643 tn?1406141596 Well the father is O+ so would it affect the baby that much if we're both an O blood type?
Avatar f tn Someone who is rh+ would not have any problems carrying a Rh- baby, O Rh- is the universal blood donor type, meaning that we can donate blood to any other blood group, however we can only recieve blood from O Rh- and I think one other (been too long since university!
1204700 tn?1271948852 I was wondering the same thing since your blood is separated from the baby so it shouldn't be an issue what your blood type is unless your rh negative.
Avatar f tn Am A- blood type and I have to do the shots in the 7 month and other depending on the type of babyborn blood . Is there any obstacles of natural delivery for the negative type of blood and any problems during pregnancy . Am 7 weeks and it's my first .
Avatar f tn Any woman who is a negative blood type has to get the shot if baby is positive blood type it's just normal
Avatar f tn Anti A1 with rh neg treated the same as any rh negative mom you will need rhogam to protect your body from attacking your fetus. Otherwise A1 is A with a a positive anti lectin 1 on it.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn I am O Negative I have a rare blood type how do I know what blood type my child will be ?
Avatar n tn I have negative blood type and had several pregnancies that I was fine with- one miscarriage and then one other pregnancy after that- he's four months old now. When you have RH negative you will need to get a shot for each pregnancy and after a baby is born, they test their blood type, if they are positive, they give you another shot.
Avatar f tn Soo my midwife informed me that I'm O-negative which means my blood can't pass thru to the babies blood because my cells will fight against it so at 28 weeks I have to have an injection to prevent this from happening in the mean time if I fall or bang my bump i have 48 hours to get this injection before it can cause harm?? Has any1 ever heard of this ??
1400499 tn?1320410293 I am RH negative. Its not a disease it has to do with your blood type. For instance im O- so my blood type is likely not to react well with my childrens if there father is of a different type. I am 30RH weeks pregnant with my 3rdchildrens child as long as u get your shot ull b fine.
1181036 tn?1367368640 I'm O- and wanted to let you know that being RH negative does NOT effect you in early pregnancy. Just because you got the Rogam shot doesn't mean that the RH negative was causing the issue. You get the shot so you don't get sensitized and have issues in the future. If you are RH sensitized it could cause issues in late pregnancy (3rd trimester). I had some spotting with my second pregnancy and needed the Rogam shot, but for me I had a missed miscarriage.
Avatar f tn As far as I know it not the blood type but if your negative or postive. Negative means your rh-. You dont have a protein in your blood that postives do. The doctor told me the samething about a month ago and that wasn't good answer. So i researched it.rh- is not common and actually only 15% of the world have to deal with this. And the lady above is right and that's only if the baby's blood leaks into you and it's different from yours (rh+). If you get the shot your fine.
Avatar f tn My blood type is O negative and my husband is A positive I've heard that if you are an rh negative blood type it can cause problems when you are trying to get pregnant. Is this true and is there anything I can do about it?
212161 tn?1599427282 I am a A- blood type and also rh negative. I had a healthy baby girl 9 yrs ago. Got a shot at 28 wks. And then another once she was born because she was my husband's blood type O positive. My sister has had 4 pregnancies 2 resulting in identical twins and she is also RH negative, babies have all been healthy. Even when you miscarry they should be giving you a shot, at least from my understanding it's every pregnancy but also depends on baby's blood type.
849762 tn?1288184748 I think it depends on what your husband's blood type is. If you're RH negative and he's RH positive (like A+, B+, AB+ or O+), then there's a risk the baby might also be positive and I guess that could cause problems...although, usually not in first pregnancies unless you already have antibodies (I read this online). To avoid this a shot can be given at 26 weeks and at birth called RhoGAM.
Avatar f tn ) ut im conserned on the fact that i have O- blood type and My OBGYN did say that on the 2nd time expecting it was more risking... Does any one know more info about this? I realldy didnt get much just the part that my body attacks the baby... So HELP!
Avatar f tn Its because im O-. I have a negative rH factor. My baby will have a postive blood type from his father so if it werent for the Rhogam shot my body would produce antibodies to fight off the baby like a virus or foriegn substance.
7540649 tn?1395719596 More than likely if your doctor said your Rh- then you have a negative blood type... doctor's arent the ones to test blood types... labs do... and its highly unlikely they are wrong... I've known that my blood type is A+ since I was 17 but the doctors test my blood type anyways... its all routine blood work... when I go to the hospital to deliver... they will test it again. ..
Avatar f tn m rh- also, blood type is B-, I got my shots at 28 weeks and 34 weeks, if my baby has a negitive blood type I won't need to get one after she's born.
Avatar f tn OK only mothers that r RH negative (negative blood type ) get the rogam stops your blood from taking on the antigens of the baby's blood if mother and baby's blood mix at the time of birth...if this were to happen and you should end up pregnant again there's a chance your body would abort the baby and you'd miscarry this happens when the blood type is different due to the now antigens you adopted from this baby...the shot stops your blood from doing this ...
