My mom is an O and was very sick her entire pregnancies.  My sister and I are both type A, but I don't know about my 3 brothers.  They think this diet is so dumb they won't even tell me their bt for reference.

My mother is an O and was sick throughout all four pregnancies. My daughter is a type O, 15 weeks along, and she has been sick off and on, some days are better than others. My sister is an O and she was never sick a day of either of her pregnancies. I'm an A and I was off and on, this was pre-BTD days but I have to say the things I didn't want to eat were the "avoids".

Harry,
My dad is an A, my mom is an O+ (hunter I think).  They had 6 of us.  Two brothers are type A, one brother is an O, my sisters and I are all O's.  One of them is O negative.  
I don't know if my brothers are positive or negative.  
I am O+ and my DH is B+
We have 2 O-sons, one B-son, our only daughter is also O+, as is our youngest son.  Just to let you know, I think your dad could be type A.  My type A dad and brothers are less active then the type O brother, he can't sit still.  Not them though.  They also gained weight at middle age, actually we all did, except the type O brother is in the best physical shape, he was a marine for 28 years.....


Hi Paulam....

Then you've answered my question that it's possible that my dad is blood type A by telling us your own mother is type O and father is type A  and yet you and one of your brothers are type-O.

As for whether O's thrive on intense exercise or A's thrive on traquility or yoga etc.. i hear some on here kinda scoff at that as i then wonder if Dr.D wrong on stating this generality for these blood types as that's what i read in the ER4YT book.

Anyway this was an very educational thread as i had no idea it would be this long with participation and i really enjoyed everyone's answers and participating in it.

Captain Janeway, I don't know if you remember the polls I took a long time ago on pregnancy sickness, but I had wondered if bloodtype incompatibility was a cause of "morning" sickness, but I couldn't determine anything from all the data shown.  

I should ask my sister who didn't have morning sickness what her ex's BT is. I had bad morning sickness until the 4th month. My ex is a B.

Very interesting thread.  I'm an O- secretor, my ex is AB+, don't know his secretor type.  I remember my pediatrician telling me at one point that sometimes the ABO incompatibility and the RH incompatibility sometimes offset each other.  .  Both my sons are A+, very different body types.  Both were jaundiced and had to be under the billi lights for a few days. I had Rhogam after both deliveries.  My older one is about 6'3" , light brown hair, dark eyes and always been thin.  My younger one was very blond with blue eyes and even taller - about 6'6" or maybe even taller than that and extremely heavy since about 5 years old.  He's 31 next month and just warned by his PCP that his sugar is high 154.  I think it's finally scared him enough that he's gotten serious about what he's eating.  I wish I knew their secretor types but as I've told you before, they think I'm some kind of nut about what I eat.

Yes, I like this thread also.  Very interesting info and such.  I always liked to know folks nationalities and general family history.  This is just one more interesting facet.   But the idea of medical conditions and blood typing is exciting since we can have some control
over the development of these conditions; be more proactive.  I like that.

I was told by Mother that I am a B- like her and my sister and was told that my dad is an O who has passed away. So i was surprised why my Obyn was not discussing about the rh negative shot because it can be dangerous for any blood type that is negative on the baby witch has an 85% chance of being positive. So i called her inquiring about it and she said that I am A+ and I said it was a mistake and impossible not knowing that each parent has two blood types and can pass on either one the recessive or dominant. I went down to the lab again being over 6 months pregnant to prove that the test results were wrong before leaving a message to my brother to see what blood type is he. He called back that he was an A- proving I could be An A.  Believe it or not I was more shocked because I have leaned towards the rules for the B type for years now and felt my personality went well with the B type Im so like my Mom and vegetarian diet has always been a turn off and when I tried it for relatively weeks and months at a time  I felt quite week. It was like a mid life crisis telling me I'm an A I hate tofu. Even though the test results arent back yet I went out and got Eat right for your Blood type always having skipped the A in paticular since the whole concept was a turn off not that i dont love Follow your Heart one of my favorite restaurants. Now I'm excited once I confirm the second blood test to know what the right foods for me. Because I have had excess mucuss problems most of my life off and on and weight since I've been 18 and energy levels have been consistently sluggish. The challenge will be to get enough calcium and protein for me and my rapidly growing baby with the new diet restrictions. Any suggestions?

Hi and welcome! I'm not crazy about tofu either, I do have a few ways that I enjoy it. My protein comes from beans and rice and fish. If you are pregnant be sure to find the "eat right for your baby" book as there are a few things different than in ER4YT.

I love Quinoa and black beans together with a little lime juice, great source of protein.

You will get lots of help here on these boards.

Hailstorm, welcome to the forums!

I was dairy-free up until a year ago when I discovered to my astonishment that on the GTD I can tolerate it again.  So I had three prior dairy-free pregnancies and nursed the babies successfully.  I got calcium through blackstrap molasses and almonds mostly.  

They say that a tea made from oatstraw is high in calcium also.

I haven't worried about calcium this time around since I've been eating plenty of dairy.

Thank you Samy and Ribbit for the  welcome and suggestions the Quino and black beans and lime sound lovely. I officially went on the A diet yesterday after going on a mid life blood type crisis a B to an A was a real shocker especially honestly I was turned off by A diet and personality.
But the truth will set you free Just from one day my nose isn't is congested and I can breath better. I have had the worst cold for the third week from getting rsv and despite the herbs netipot collidaial silver up my nose avoiding the mucus forming foods I believe will finally get me well. I should look into the Genotype thing just in case I don't want to be on this too long and then have to change again I just want to find whats right for me while Im pregnant and nursing and for a lifetime after that and just stick with what I hope for the first time in my life will work for me.

I also wonder if you can determine our dominant blood type gene and the recessive since we give two if we have offspring and we get two from our parents right?

That cannot be determined by a blood test that I am aware of. And yes, we each have two, a dominate and a recessive, and it would only be a guess as to what your recessive is if you are an A. I happen to know that I am Ao because I have an O daughter and that could not happen if I were Aa.

Normally determined by using a saliva test.

If you prefer blood, a Lewis test can be used.

Normally one just determine the dominant, since this is what is cheap and easy to determine. Also it is what matters most of the time.

A more expensive testing would have to be used to determine the recessive allele.

A blood type O or a blood type AB individual already know their genotype.

People with A or B blood type can usually figure out their genotype by knowing the blood type of children and parents.

For instance if a type A individual has a type O parent or a type O child, their genotype must be Ao.

Also if a type A individual has a type B parent or a type B child, their genotype must be Ao.
