o_________Ao____________Ao

All offspings are Ao, meaning they are just like LadyRobyn, they are type A but with the recessive gene. The problem is that the A overpowers the O.

In your case it would be:

___________A_____________A
A__________AA____________AA

o__________Ao____________Ao

So here we have 50% type A with recessive gene(heterogeneouse), and 50% type A (homogeneouse)

LOL, i got it now.

So let me throw this at you and tell me if i'm right? I'm type O and my mom is type O but we believe my dad is type A and if that's true he'd have to be an Ao because if he was AA then i'd been a type A instead of type O correct?

Ok, now you are getting to be an expert.
Yes, if you are O, then your father if he was A, he could only be Ao.
If B, only Bo.
As long as you are sure that you and your mother is O.

OK, here's my interesting family:

I am type A

DH is B

DD #1 is AB (She inherited an A from me, and a B from DH)

DD#2 is O (She inherited an O from me and an O from DH)

4 people, 4 different blood types. I am neg, the rest of them are +, but obviously the DDs have a neg and a pos gene (expressed as +).

We also could have had a child that was A or B.

There is a higher level of "intuitiveness" that accompanies this rh- bloodtype, that in it's self can scare the daylights out of ya.
Being a universal donor is a wonderful thing, but it still leaves the actual rh-, especially the 0rh- person with a struggle in life.
I would like to challange the Science world to do more research and study into the rh- bloodtype to find a way to ease the medical difficulties that comes with it.

I am O Rh neg, with a French grandfather though I live in England not the US.

I have always known my blood type, I was born in 1954, my mother had an Rh neg blood group (found during standard pregnancy testing), so my father was called in to have his blood typed - he was O Rh neg - so no problem for any of her 4 pregnancies or children. We (the children) all had our blood types done at birth. Obviously we all have Rh neg blood types. I understand 2 negs can't have a pos child, but 2 pos can have a neg child - I could be wrong though.

When I had my own children - my husband is a Rh pos blood group - I had to have anti D injections - (Rhogam) to prevent any problems in future pregnancies. My children had their blood groups determined by blood taken from the umbilical cord after the birth.

My children are not all Rh neg blood groups and those that are have no health issues, neither do I or any of my 3 siblings (all Rh neg groups).

I understand some of the issues surrounding "rhesus babies", but they come from an Rh neg mother having had an Rh pos child. Some of the baby's blood cells entering the mother's blood during pregnancy, cause antibodies to built up that could affect future pregnancies by destroying the red blood cells of the next baby.

Untreated babies could be anaemic or brain damaged or die before birth.

But I have never heard of an Rh pos mother producing an Rh neg child that has any problems.

Rh- or + is not a disease.

No, but an Rh neg mother can have the problems the PP described. And yes, Rh pos. parents can have Rh neg kids, depending on their genetic makeup.

This is all she said about "disease" in her post that you quoted:

I had to have anti D injections - (Rhogam) to prevent any problems in future pregnancies

This is factually correct.

Ok, this is what I mean...
"At the age of 2 years old, before the discovery of rhogam, my body developed an allergic reaction to my own bloodtype."
She doesn't have an allergic reaction to her own blood, she is talking about Rh Disease(Rhesus disease), that is her blood (antibodies) attacking her fetus blood and not her own. And I dont think she was pregnant at 2 YO.

"My throat swelled close in just two days."
??? This is an allergic reaction to something else and not Rh Disease.

"I recieved the new serum shot right afterwards, and it worked to calm that war between body and bloodtype."
I have no idea what she is talking about. She thinks that Rh - is a disease, that attacks her. When having Rh- is 100% natural.

"Having this rh- bloodtype, in the total absence of any protiens that surround the redblood cells of the rh+ bloodtype, I have been a target for any ailment that is in our ancestry."
Again, what is she talking about...
She can't have blood cell that are Rh+ and at the same time Rh-.

"My oldest son has health problems, my second son died at 3 months from what is called SIDS (actually this traumatic bloodtype mixture)."
Again and again, nothing that she is saying is real.
Rh Disease is only on mothers to fetus disease nothing to do with male.
And is she had Rh Disease with her son, this would not cause SIDS, if the baby is born then the baby is out of danger from Rh Disease.


"My third son is colorblind, mainly in the pastels."
Color blind is mostly genetic, nothing to do with blood type.
Also color blind comes in 3 forms.
total color blind(all colors)
Red-Green color Blind
blue-yellow color blind and not pastels.

"An underlying depression syndrom runs through this rh- bloodtype, per the absence of Proteins."
I have no idea what she is talking about.
but again, is not true.

"There is a higher level of "intuitiveness" that accompanies this rh- bloodtype, that in it's self can scare the daylights out of ya."
Again, false

"but it still leaves the actual rh-, especially the 0rh- person with a struggle in life."

People with Rh- don't have any struggle.


"I would like to challange the Science world to do more research and study into the rh- bloodtype to find a way to ease the medical difficulties that comes with it."
Nothing to research is normal, there is nothing bad with Rh-. Why should we do research on something that is normal, that is like saying I have to study why people have 2 arms because is a disease.

So everything that the poster said is 100% false.
Nothing is true.
