Is it possible to have both parents with O positive bloodtype, but their child have O negative blood type?

Yes

Blood
The Rh factor is inherited through separate genetic means from the blood type. The Rh factor is a dominant gene, meaning only one gene is needed to cause expression of the factor. So two Rh + parents can have a Rh+/Rh- gene pattern and have a 1/4 chance with every conception of having an Rh-/Rh- baby,1/4 chance of Rh+/Rh+ baby and 1/2 of carrier Rh+/Rh-.

Could you tell me if my mom is o positive what are her parents possible blood types?

Blood typing

Blood
The 4 major blood groups are A, B, AB and O. If your mother is group O, than neither of her parents could be type AB. The others would be possible. Likewise, being Rh positive means that at least one of your mother's parents were Rh positive, but not necessarily both.

What does it mean if my blood type is o positive?

Antigens

Blood
You lack either the A or B antigens on your blood cells but do have rH positive antigen. It means you can donate blood to anyone who is rH positive irrespective of their blood type. There is no relationship of blood type to blood function or any aspect of health.

My blood type is O (positive) , does that mean i can only recieve O ( positive or negative) in case of an emergency?

O Positive

Blood
O + blood type means you have the RH antibody. If you receive O negative blood, which has no RH antibody, you are OK. If you receive O+ blood, you're OK. But if you donate blood, there may be a problem to the recipient, if they have negative blood type. Any transfusion is preceded by a cross match wherein the two bloods are checked for compatibility to lessen the risk of transfusion react.

Using the ABO blood typing system- two parents with Type O blood would have a baby with Type O Blood. The baby may or maynot be Rh positive.
