Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

My dad has ab positive and my mom has a negative blood type. What would i have?

My dad has ab positive and my mom has a negative blood type. What would i have?

Either: Not enough information, since the rh-factor can either be transmitted or not, so could be either. Equally challenging to see if you are a, b, or ab blood type, depending on mom's blood type. Can donate blood and they'll send you a donor card with your blood type & rh factor (and you will save 3 people's lives!). ...Read more

My blood type is o positive, and my husband is a negative. Will we have a+/- children, and would that make for high risk pregnancies?

My blood type is o positive, and my husband is a negative. Will we have a+/- children, and would that make for high risk pregnancies?

Possible issue: I would not consider an a/o incompatibility issue high risk, but worthy of monitoring. In your lifetime you have likely been sensitized to the proteins on the a blood cells & your antibodies will cross into baby & boost his/her chances of having jaundice.Most do well without rx & some require some special monitoring & help.I can remember only 1 case in 3 decades that gave me any real trouble. ...Read more

What are ab positive blood types advantages and disadvantages?

None: Your blood type (abo group, rh group) offers no real advantage or disadvantage. There are pages that will offer advice for particular blood types; this is just a scam. Type ab+ can take red cells from any ABO and rh type but might do best with plasma from other ab donors. ...Read more

Why would I have ab positive blood and my brother has b negative?

Why would I have ab positive blood and my brother has b negative?

Several ways: A & b are codominant over o. If one parent has ao alleles & other bo they can have a, b, o & ab offspring. Rh+ is dominant over rh-. If both parents have rh+ & rh- alleles they are rh+ but can pass on the rh- trait & have rh+ & rh- kids. This also happens if one parent is rh-. ...Read more

What is the difference between ab negative and ab positive blood group?

Blood typing: When one says that they have a-, b-, o-, or ab- blood they mean to say that they are rhesus factor negative. The rh blood group system is second only to the ABO system in importance in transfusion medicine. Antibodies to rh antigens such as d, c, and e arise following transfusions and pregnancy. They are responsible for hemolytic disease of the newborn and severe hemolytic transfusion reactions. ...Read more

What will happen if you have a negative blood type and your bf had a positive blood type during a pregnancy?

What will happen if you have a negative blood type and your bf had a positive blood type during a pregnancy?

Rh negative: If a woman is Rh negative, and the father of her baby is Rh positive, there is a good chance that their baby will be Rh positive. When a Rh neg mom carries a Rh pos baby, there is a good chance that at some point during the pregnancy, their blood will mix and cause the mom's blood to make antibodies which attack the babies blood causing anemia. Mom's take rhogam to prevent this. ...Read more

Is it ok for a b-positive blood type person to marry a rhesus negative person?

Is it ok for a b-positive blood type person to marry a rhesus negative person?

Yes, not Right Issue: Blood type: thousands of proteins on the surface of cells. Abo & rh were the first 2 & most important (in terms of transfusion reactions) types characterized historically. There are hundreds more "types". O means neither a or b. A means a from 1 parent. B means b from 1 parent. Thus a+a, b+b, a+b or o. Rh+ means present. Rh- means not present. A o+rh- mom might reject a+b+rh+ fetus but usually ok. ...Read more

You may have two positive genes or a positive and a negative gene. B+O would equal B, O+O would equal O. Negative + negative = negative, while negative + positive = positive. It depends on what you both carry and what you pass on! ...Read more
