    I know my twin daughters blood group because its the same as mine (O neg) and the midwives made a point of telling me that because it means they'll have to have the anti d injections when they're preggers.

    I only know that my son is positive but not the group. Again, I was told this because of my negative blood and needed an ant d injection after he was born.

    Your GP could be able to tell you your baby's group or take some blood and find out, if you want to know :)

    My mom is AB+ and my dad is O+ and I am A-....and I am definitely biologically their kid. Doctors explain it as some sort of recessive trait somewhere in our blood line that passed on to me.

    My parents are both o positive which means almost no chance of me being anything else but I'm o negative, 1 in 2,000,000 chance of that!!

    OH doesnt know what he is, I'm AB+ so I know Bubs is positive (I guess) but no idea as to her group! I only found out at 22 when I donated blood.

    I'm A+ and so is my husband. My son is A+, but my daughter is O+. After asking, there are other O blood type people on my mother's side, including my oldest brother.

    O- could happen because the + is the dominant allele but your parents could both have a recessive - allele.

    I love blood type genetics because they're so simple. I think there's a good chance that LO is O- because I think my mom is O- so I'm likely O with + and - alleles and DH is O-.
