November 3, 2006: I have the A Negative (A-) blood type. My mother has the A Positive (A+) blood type, and my father has the O Positive (O+) blood type. So, how can I have the A- blood type if both of my parents are + blood type? Could I have gotten my blood type from one of my grandparents?

May 24, 2005: Is it possible for 2 Rh negative parents to produce a Rh positive child? I am pregnant with my second child. My blood type is O-. My husband and daughter both have A-. At my last OB appointment I was told that at my next visit I would have an antibody screen and most likely need a Rhogam shot. I know this is administered as a precaution in case the baby is Rh+. However, I understood this to be impossible since both my husband and I are Rh-. When I questioned the nurse, I was quite surprised when she told me that it IS possible to have an Rh+ child because of recessive Rh+ genes. Is this true? All the information I have found so far leads me to believe this is impossible. (And yes, I am 100% certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that my husband is the father of my child).
