    I honestly don’t know what blood type I am. I was told by the doctor when I was pregnant that I was 0- and since I was negative I had to have those extra shots since I didn’t know if my Fiance was + or -.

     

    But then when my son was born, I was told that my son was AB- and I didn’t need to have the last shot since he was negative also.

     

    I didn’t think anything of it (I mean, I had just had my first baby! I wasn’t really thinking about blood type at that point) but then I realized that I don’t think it is possible for someone with O blood to have an AB child!

     

    So I don’t know if they were wrong on my blood type or my sons. Which now has me worried since I didn’t get that last rhogam shot!

    @Laurenskii: the pregnancy thing is not a huge deal. I’m A- and my husband doesn’t know his blood type (neither does his mom). My doc said we’ll just assume he is negative to be safe. All it means is I have to get a shot at 28 weeks and another upon delivery. No big thing as long as I get the shots!

    I don’t even know! One of my parents has a very rare blood type and the other is a universal donor.

    When I was hospitalized they took my blood 5 times in three days, and each and every time they did I asked for my blood type.

    NOT ONCE did someone answer my question.

    @fluffernutter38:  It’s all about how well you eat. Lots of iron rich food…read meats, ddark green leafyy veg (spinach!)…I love spinach salad. I try to void taking suplimeents…but when I get busy and stop eating well, I feel low in energy.

    @KingsDaughter:  I’m good about dark leafy greens (obsessed with spinach, swiss chard, kale, mustard greens, turnip greens, collard greens), but I don’t eat as much red meat. Granted, my dietary habits in late highschool and early college are probably different than now. Doesn’t hurt to try to donate. =) The worst that happens is I waste some time if my iron still isn’t up to scratch.

    I’m A+. Has anyone actually followed those blood type/diet books, do they work?

    I’m O- and I used to donate blood regularly. However, about two years ago, one of their quick tests came back showing that I was positive for some sort of antibodies (their quick tests only look for the antibodies, not the actual disease). So, even though I have only the antibodies and not the actual disease (I had my doctor do an independent blood test), they sent me a letter saying they would never accept blood from me again because they would have to run the more expensive test on it to clear it for donation. Makes me sad, but at least they’ve stopped calling me all the time . . .

    @fuzzyslipper:  Technically speaking, this is actually possible if your husband carries the cis AB allele, but that is extremely rare. Genetics is really interesting. 😉

    I have no idea, but I should probably find out.

    AB-. I only found out last year just for the heck of it from my doctor.
