Common Questions and Answers about Is type o blood rare


Avatar f tn Got Ava's blood type today. Her's is A+, mine is O+, does this mean that her father is A???? We do not know his blood type. I tried to study it but it's all soooo confusing to me. Anyone know the answer to this??
Avatar f tn You get it 2-3 different times one at beginning of pregnancy, one at 28 weeks, and if baby is born with a different blood type than you,you get one after you give birth. They are given in the hip and not a big deal.
Avatar n tn My fiance just got blood typed as LAN blood type after not knowing his blood type for 23 years, I am O neg. What complications could we have with conceiving and pregnancy?
Avatar f tn 0- is not rare but it the universal blood type.. It is the only type of blood that can mix into any other type of blood with out any complications... Although being pregnant and having this blood type the body generally does try to regect the baby.. It is VERY NORMAL to get that shot actually they generally give every pregnant woman that shot just in case so the body doesnt regect the baby..
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 m tn Babydust, there is a blood disorder that causes some people to test O when they are actually A or B. Lacking some kind of thing that makes the A or B antigen show up in testing. So in those cases, where a parent is actually an A or B but the testing doesn't detect those antigens, and instead it appears the parent is an O, they can have a child who is a B. But two true O parents can only product O babies.
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 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 m tn Is this true that there is a rare type/strain of HIV that cannot be detected ? I really need your responses. Any scientific data will help a lot. Is it possible that i be infected with HIV and not know about it at all?? This is really killing me. Really worried guy.
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 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).
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 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.
Avatar f tn it's just a shot. You'll get one if you start to bleed at all, or at 28wks or so, and then after birthing your baby. essentially, it stops the baby's blood from mixing with yours. Because if that happens and the baby's blood type is different, your body will think it's a foreign object, and fight off the baby as if it is an infection and you'll miscarry. The shot stops it, and makes your body think that any blood it detects, is the same type as you.
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 m tn Because N and P and type 2 is not found in your location. HIV testing facilities know what to test for.
Avatar f tn I just recently asked what was my blood type because my mom told me I was o-negative. Well I found out that I am but I never received a Rhogam shot. My doctor has never even discussed it with me. Is this a big issue? Will this cause any complications? Has anyone else dealt with this????
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 ??
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 has anyone else had the ant D injection because of their rare blood type?
Avatar f tn Yeah, dont worry, its normal, just get that shot :)
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 Being a phlebotomist I deal a lot with blood types, and it does most definitely matter what your blood type is. If your negative and your baby is a positive than your body will attack the baby. The shot helps to prevent that from happening.
Avatar f tn Okay so my blood type is o-negative , I'll be 20 weeks tomorrow and everybody has been telling me that I'm suppose to get a shot twice so that my blood doesn't fight off the babies blood if he has a different type. Has anyone else ever had this problem? Should I call my Dr and ask?
Avatar f tn If your husband has a RARE blood type, I would do it. But if your baby has a pretty common blood type you don't need to. Or you can donate, for free, the blood. In the event your child ever needed cord blood stem cells, they don't have to have their own from birth. There is plenty of donated blood. I wanted to donate by the hospital I went to wasn't doing it at the time. I hope they change the policy.
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.
