Blood type o rh positive

Common Questions and Answers about Blood type o rh positive

blood

Avatar n tn Well, I have to get one because I'm a negative blood type and SO is a positive blood type. If my babies happen to have a positive blood type then my body will attack the pregnancy. The shot is called a rhogam shot and that assures your body will accept my pregnancies.
Avatar f tn I dont think baby will need it if its +, o- is the universal donor which is why transfusion centres want our blood so bad, we can donate to anyone and our blood wont harm them however we can only accept o- blood and I think 1 other blood type. Its maybe different for the other blood groups with the neg factor.
1230912 tn?1273496370 I think that the RH negative blood type is a clue or something. Have you read the crazy stuff about Rh positive blood some folks call it monkey blood and the negative blood they call reptilian blood....uh, ok...they say that folks from the Basque people (spain which was infiltrated with vikings) that they have the highest amount of the o neg types.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Is it because ur baby has the same blood type as urs?
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.
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 This is my second pregnancy but unfortunately my first ended in miscarriage and my gp stated something to do with my blood type fighting against the baby's blood cells because my partners blood is positive. I'm scared it's going to end the same way does anyone else know anything about o neg blood in pregnancy a bit concerned !!
Avatar f tn Reason why, the only reason why having o- blood type is a problem is if your baby has a different blood type then you and for some reason your blood is mixed during pregnancy then your body will not recognize it and try to fight it off like an infection. It will create antibodies but those antibodies only happen in second, third, or any other pregnancy in the future.Your body won't make them during your first.
1891031 tn?1329882337 Your blood would have to mix with a + blood type at some point for you to produce the antibodies. They always test your blood type in early pregnancies to know if you have the antibodies already and determine if you need the Roh-Gam shot. If you have spotting in early pregnancy they'll give it to you and again at about 28 weeks you'll get the shot. When you give birth they will check the babies blood type to see if you need the shot. It wouldn't make you or your baby sick right now.
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 So I'm an o- and I know that if your partner is a positive blood type that you will need to get an rh shot some time in pregnancy 28 weeks I believe n after the baby is born. So I'm wondering is anyone else like me ? I know o- blood types are rare only 15% or less of the worlds population has this blood type. Anyone have advice for me? I'm a first time mom and I've found myself worried about the health of my baby. Ill be 8 weeks Tuesday .
Avatar n tn 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.
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.
Avatar n tn 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. For my pregnancy after my miscarriage and my miscarriage, I had spotting and they brought me in for a shot right away instead of waiting for the 'standard 28 weeks'.
Avatar f tn Just curiouse on your story! This is my first pregnancy I found out I had rh- blood type and withought any proof they sent me home with pain meds saying because of my blood type I'm gonna miscarry. I have been calling and calling my obgyn because I want proof that my baby is actually dead. I have not miscarried yet. But they are just assuming that I will because of my blood type. So FRUSTRATING! Any one else have this probablem? And what's your story/ journey with having this blood type?
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 n tn We inherit 2 copies of our genes, one from our mother, and the other copy from our father. There are three different forms (called alleles) of the gene for blood type called A, B, and O. Blood type is determined by the combination of alleles inherited from our parents. A person’s blood type is called their phenotype, and the different genetic combination of the forms of the gene is called a genotype. An example of a genotype would be OB.
849762 tn?1288188348 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.
10581471 tn?1417748298 I'm scheduled to get a shot next week to ensure that my body doesn't try to fight off my baby. If my son has positive blood that could happen if our blood mixes. Not really a question... I'm just wondering if any other moms are in my same situation. Apparently my blood type is rare.
Avatar m tn Is it possible for Father with blood type A+ Mother O+ and child B+ blood type??
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 If your baby has any positive blood type if your body senses the RH factor, what makes blood positive, your body will try to attack it, in turn attacking baby.
Avatar f tn I have O- blood and I have just found out that I am expecting. My mum suffered various miscarriages due to this reason as her body rejected the baby. I'm scared incase I do the same as it's just nature. What can I do to prevent this? Someone please help.
