Type o blood problems

Common Questions and Answers about Type o blood problems


Avatar f tn My blood type is O- and I've heard that this may cause problems for my baby. Are any of you mommies O- as well? What did you have to do in order to keep you and baby safe? And was everything okay? Is your baby healthy now? I just want to know what I need to expect. I am almost 13 weeks pregnant. Thanks.
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 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.
1181036 tn?1367372240 The doctor gave me a shot of Rogam and said no sex basically (which is fine for me right now but DH is having a difficult time). Anyone else have these types of problems with O- blood? Did they get any better as pregnancy continued (Like being able to have sex?
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 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.
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 n tn I am on my third pregnancy and my blood type came back as 0 postitive on my first two pregnancies. This pregnancy my blood type is 0 negative. I thought your blood type cannot change. Has anyone ever heard of this. They want me to take RhoGAM but I am hesitant because I do believe I am 0 positive?
Avatar n tn I'm 66 y/o and have had type 1 (juvenile) diabetes since age 10. Andy, your Girlfriend is living with diabetes instead of letting diabetes livie with her. She's letting it control her life instead of her controling the diabetes. She needs your support, FIRST and FOREMOST! Hang in there; keep letting her know you care. Support in truly what she needs.
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??
205230 tn?1237408793 Just wondering if any of you had your blood type checked. I am o negative with negative type antibodies which means I will definitely need rhogam so my body doesn't go against the baby. Have any of you discussed this with your doc. yet? It is really important to know in case you haven't yet. I am pretty bummed about this. My mom lost her baby 2 days after birth do to a disformed heart. This was from the neg. blood type and neg. antibody type.
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 .
1230912 tn?1273496370 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.
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????
1352892 tn?1338221505 It's a good idea to get the rhogam shot after a miscarriage, too, as blood can mix there and cause problems but if you are pregnant again and so far no problems, then blood type should not be a problem. I also had to get the shot this time even though my husband is also -, just to be safe. Try not to worry about it, Rh- women have Rh+ babies safely all the time. Even in countries that don't give the rhogam shot like we do in the US.
Avatar n tn By the way, I am O+ type blood. My mom is O-, and my father is O+. I know she had to get a shot because of this RH incompatibility with my father.
1225198 tn?1336791830 My mom is O- and dad is AB+. ANYONE can take O- blood, but - can't take + blood. This makes O- blood like gold, and O+ is pretty important too. You should dontate blood more often! But even in the situation of one partner with + and the other with -, it won't PREVENT pregnancy, it would only make keeping the pregnancy difficult, if not impossible. My mom had 2 miscarrages before finding out the problem. She sucessfully had 5 children with help once she knew she had - blood. Hope that helps.
Avatar f tn hi, i have o negative blood type and have been tryi g to get pregnent for a year now is their anything i can do to boost fertility.i am healtg average weight of 118 lbs 5 '1?
Avatar n tn Have either of you ever heard of anything about blood type (especially O neg) having anything to do with Hep C or geno or tx?
Avatar f tn Polycystic disease of the ovary with insulin resistance is the third cause. Fasting blood sugar, blood sugar after 2 hours of food and glucose tolerance test should all be performed.Along with all these menopausal evaluation must be done. Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn I am an O +, and follow closely the O Blood Type food plan. Only problem I have is so little control over the increased work load & stress as a teacher. I have plans to retire in 2 years and 30 weeks to be more in control of the stress. Until then, I will have to endure the pain -possible Fibro. [Had endometriosis, and hysterectomy.] Suffer from fatigue and the typically O-hypothyroidism [as is typical for Os.] My question- a new Dr. wants to put me on Cimbalta.
Avatar n tn No, there is no problem with having babies with you both having the same blood type. The baby will just have the same blood type. I have 2 girls myself and their dad have A+ and both kids have the same. they are now 13 and 15 years old. Dont worry no problems !!!
140033 tn?1189759435 They said I would need another shot of this product if I ever miscarried again or gave birth. And that my rare blood type MAY have contributed to the problems w/ the pregnancy. Or a combination of mine and hubbys blood types may have done something. My ob/gyn who did the d&c this morning was in labour & delivery for the rest of the day so I wont be able to ask him til my 6 week checkup.
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?
374668 tn?1214342337 When I was pregnant, I found out that I had B positive blood. Both my parents are O positive, and so is my brother. I know my parents are my parents because I look like both of them, and I have their same genetic health problems. My mother's mother had B positive blood, and maybe it skipped to me? What do you think?
166219 tn?1267490838 got ready to O then O late like you guys (April Tina Patty and Jersey)? Sorry I think Im done freaking out for now GOSH I need to go back to work :O( Super sticky baby dust to all of you and BFP's.....
4083235 tn?1351035852 Also consider being tested for Hypothyroid type 2, as standard blood tests may not indicate this. Type 2 hypothyroidism or thyroid hormone resistance is caused by an intracellular calcium/potassium imbalance in all the cells of the body, caused by too much calcium and too little potassium inside these cells, neutralizing the effects of the thyroid hormones that are produced and making them ineffective in governing our bodies' metabolic functions.
Avatar f tn -it always hurt to BF on my left side (LC thinks I may have a cyst there) -since my left side was painful to nurse on, I always had to pump it ( I wanted to be able to BF only) -my right nipple was constantly sore since it wasn't getting any break from baby's suckling, I kept getting blisters -my breasts kept getting clogged and they would get very painful until I was able to unclog them -when my breasts got clogged, my production suffered because they were so painful that I couldn't keep up wi
