some1 please help me on this. thanks
Hi shezxxroberts. I've just looked it up, and I believe it's a recessive chacteristic.

You inherit two chacteristics - one from your Mum and one from your Dad. If there's at least one RH+ve, it will be dominant and you'll be RH+ve. So you can only be RH-ve if both parents pass it on.
Umm...not exactly true. I am RH- and my mom is RH+. Not sure what my dad is but he had to have been RH- too.

I am also thinking based on what I have gathered that whether you get RH- or RH+ seems to depend on what your dad had.

Here are some examples:
Dad: RH-
+
Mom: RH+
=Me: RH-

Grandpa: RH+
+
Grandma: RH-
=Mom: RH+


FIL: RH+
+
MIL: RH-
= DH: RH+


Based on my predictions the male gene seems to be more dominant in the determination on the blood type and also based on my predictions it is probable that when me and DH have a baby it will be RH+.

Grantswife, thanks for prompting me to go back and check this again. I don't think I had it quite clear in my head, so I didn't explain it well.

Each parent has two alleles (either + or -). If at least one of those is + (either ++ or +-), the parent will be RH+. They pass one of their alleles onto their baby, and it can be either allele.

So a parent with +- (who would be RH+) could pass the - allele onto their baby. If both parents pass on a - allele, the baby will be -- (RH-).

For shezxxroberts, this means that both her and the baby's father must have passed on a - allele... but the baby's father could be either +- (RH+) or -- (RH-).

I don't know whether that makes it much clearer (!), but there's a good link here: http://www.drgreene.com/qa/are-they-really-my-parents

(Sorry about the title of the link - obviously not relevant to what's being discussed here, but I can't find another link with a good explanation.)

I had this same problem , i was tested after my first (about a year after) and my liver was abnormal then all through this pregnancy my liver was abnormal aswell but only slightly so they wouldnt class it as OC as the numbers just werent high enough, my ALT was 60 when a normal person was 30 but when i was pregnant with my first and had OC the numbers were as high as 600!! I doubt they will class it as cholestasis to be honest i think they will just say its abnormal LFT's and keep and eye on it xxx

I feel for you x I had my gall bladder out 3 months after having Alfie and had OC... miserable times!

Did the doc check your bile acid levels?

Hi, i havnt bee on here for a while after having my son. I am RH neg and i have suffered from OC in both my pregnancies.....is there a link i wonder?

They do say that if you have had OC in one pregnancy then its more likely to happen in the next pregnancys.

I was wondering about the link because they say OC could be hereditry....yet neither my sister or my mum have suffered from it...nor do they have negative blood.....just little me lol, so im wondering if it could be linked or am im just unlucky haha i also suffered from numerous bleed which then i required the anti D x
