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

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. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Confusing wording: I take it your testing said you had CMV in the past. Right? .The testing determines if you had it long ago or within 2 months. If long ago, relax. CMV is only a problem for your baby if you have it for the first time during pregnancy.Once you had it you are immune and any future pregnancy has no CMV risk. ...Read more

If cps is following a friends pregnancy due to a dirty ua for pot, will babies meconium be tested at birth? Or just blood / urine?

If cps is following a friends pregnancy due to a dirty ua for pot, will babies meconium be tested at birth? Or just blood / urine?

Depends: In my state, if your friend is on the CPS watch list, every hospital in the region will be on notice and both urine and meconium would routinely be tested. Since meconium can retain any banned substance for months after use, the only way to stay out of trouble would be to abstain. You didn't identify the state, so I don't know if this applies. ...Read more

My husband's blood type is O+ve and mine is B+ve. Is it fine for a baby?

My husband's blood type is O+ve and mine is B+ve. Is it fine for a baby?

You should be fine.: There should not be a problem for you or your baby as you both have a positive Rh factor. The type O or a should not create issues for you as your husband could donate blood to you, but you would not be able to give your blood to him, and generally the type of the parents blood is only problematic where Rh factor is concerned. Ask your OB/GYN if you want additional reassurance. Good luck! ...Read more

Can a child have a negative blood type if both of her parents are o positve?

Can a child have a negative blood type if both of her parents are o positve?

Yes: Each parent has two rh genes. It only takes one positive gene to make a person rh positive, so each parent can have a positive and a negative rh gene. Both genes have to be rh negative for someone to be rh negative. Since each parent only contributes one gene to child, the child can get a negative gene from each parent and therefore be rh negative. ...Read more
