What is your blood type?

I was going to start a poll, but I don't think most people will know what their blood type is

Do you guys know what your blood type is? Do any of you donate blood?

I recently had my man blood typed because we didn't know what his typing was. I have the recond rarest blood type with a negative Rh-that means that unless my honest happen to also be a rare blood type, I would have had to have some special follow ups during pregnancies. So I had him typed He happens to have the rarest blood type which matches mine! Yeah! Go me, excellent news for us. I now know I won't have to worry about anything now.

Any other moms out there who had to deal with this?

You guys planning on getting pregnant soon?

I'm AB- with both pregnancies I had to have shots I believe it's 28 wks and then again after delivery. I think it's within 72 hours you have to have it but it's been over 11 years since I had a baby. I still carry my card in my wallet even though I am out of the baby-making business lol
I found this on a Red Cross website I thought it would be cool to share

That is cool. Apparently, I am pretty common. I have A+. I gave blood once a long time ago but it is hard because sporadically, I get tattoos and/or a body piercing so the timeframe just doesn't work for me usually.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'm B+ and do give blood from time to time, though I have the same issue as smrobs where I have to fit it in between tattoos...and travelling to strange places.

I'm also on the bone marrow donor list and once got a call to go to the next level of testing as I was a preliminary match for a 12 yr old girl. Unfortunately, I wasn't enough of a match after that.

I am 0-neg - I have never given blood - I had to have a Rogam (sp?) shot so many hours after the birth of my children - never any complications.
