Which are normal and which are unique? Im A positive, is that normal? X
hey hunni! yup that is normal i think.. i am that too! the Rneg or Rpos rhesus i think its called is not the "normal" one and the ost popular one is O i think! i know my hubby is a O blood group and he can gie to any other blood group but we (A+) can only give to A+ if that makes sence.. y u wondering babe?
depends on the country:
chart about half way down.
35% of people in the UK are A pos.
I'm A+ and it's the second most common group in the UK. O+ is most common and AB- is the rarest.
The NBS provides a breakdown here: https://www.blood.co.uk/about-blood/blood-group-basics/
The positive and negative are to do with rhesus factor and there is no normal or not - although negative mums pregnant with positive babies may need anti-D treatment.
Do you know what bood type you are? O, A, B or AB?
o is the most common follwed by A and B. then AB is the most rare.
if you are o you can only have o blood
a you can have o and A
B you can have o and b
and if you are AB you can have A,B,AB and O
if you are negative you can only have neg blood, if you are pos you can have neg and positive.
does that help?
O+ 37% o- 6%
a+ 34% a- 6%
b+ 10% b- 2%
ab+ 4% ab- 1%
I'm AB+. It's pretty rare but it's still normal. My OH is O which is the most popular.
Oh and if you're interested you can see the national blood stocks in units here: https://www.blood.co.uk/StockGraph/stocklevelstandard.aspx
Donors of common groups are usually called on more frequently to give blood than those of rarer ones as there are more people in need of transfusions due to a higher percentage of the population being from those blood groups.
Just always been curious about it, curious as to which the most rare is etc. Dunno why, im weird like that lol. Thanks everyone x
my husband is AB+ and im O+ and our DS is B+ ,
Because we all have positive blood groups then we arent RH neg so i dont need Anti D when pregnant , however there are other blood type conflict disorders one of which affected my DS at birth and he ended up in the Neo-Natal unit for a few days, they cant screen sucessfully for many causes of HDN ( what make my son so sick he was suffering from an ABO HDN complication ) except for the RH negative one and anyone pregnant who is RH neg should get 2 Anti D shots during pregnancy and one just post birth and the baby will be observed, some cases need extra Anti D and they reccomend getting a shot if you have any bleeding or accidents which impact your bump, you would have been notified after your booking bloods were processed if you were RH Neg
I'm A+ xx
I'm B-, my husband is B+, my daughter is B+ and my son (who died) was O+. xx
I'm O Neg - everyones fave blood group. I'm the kinda girl you want around in a crisis as anyone can have my blood.
O is the universal donor - anyone can receive O transfusions - so it's especially useful for those with O blood to donate.
I believe I'm A+.
i'm O+ and i give blood regulerly as i know it helps other groups
one thing i dont get tho, my mum is A- and my dad is convinced he is A+ i know the - and + thing is true cause of the problems my mum had with preganncys but how can i be O when they are both A??????
do you think they either arnt telling me something or my dad has it wrong lol
