good morning

So we finally tested my hubby, he's an O which I did predict.  I was looking at some charts on line that determine the blood type of your children.  It said since I'm AB and he's O our children should be either A or B.  Do you think these charts are correct?  I'm going to be hard pressed to prick my four year old.  It's kind of funny I really kind of thought she would have been an O with her personality.  Could it still be possible that she is an O?

Thanks for your time.

No, Twenzel, your children can ONLY be either A or B.  Let me explain - yours is actually one of the simplest:

Your husband is an "O", this means that he is ACTUALLY "OO".  Since 'O' is recessive, if he had and 'A' or a 'B', he would be 'AO', which is "A", or a 'BO', which is "B" Bloodtype.  

So hubby is 'OO'.  He can ONLY give an 'O' to your children.

YOU are 'AB'.  YOU can give EITHER an 'A' OR a 'B' to your children.

So, your child will EITHER be an 'AO' (the 'A' from you and the 'O' from hubby) which is bloodtype A

or

you child will be a 'BO' (the 'B' from you and the 'O' from hubby), which is bloodtype B

SIMPLE! (sort of)

the chart is correct......
that tiny prick is no big deal
how tiny are your kids?

a heel prick is less traumatic if they are babies

The older two shouldn't be to hard they are 10 and 11.  My 4 year old will be the wild card.  I had to hold her down just to get a throut culture.  It's going to be a real juggle if I have both A's and B's into the mix of my AB and my husbands O for dinner.  I'll figure it out.  

Thanks again,

I am questioning the OO thing. My husband is O+. His younger brother is A+. The older brother we are not sure of but think he is an A.
Both parents are deceased. We are pretty sure one was an O and the other an A.
This would mean my O husband came from one A parent.

It is possible for an blood type A person having an A and O allele to parent an A or O child, provided that their partner can provide the other O allele to the O child...

Agreeing with ABJoe. Parent would be AO.

My hubby is AO, with A mom and O dad, I'm O, with B mom, don't know my dad's type. Our daughter's A, and I don't know my son's type, but I think he's probably O, judging from his food preferences (he's only 3, so he still eats pretty much what agrees with him, or rather, doesn't eat what doesn't agree with him  ;D)

So I'm with the above, the A parent would be AO.

A little video I made a while back:

Hi Pixu,
   I'm not sure if I agree with determining your son's blood type by what he likes to eat.  When my youngest grandson was about 2 he loved bananas and red peppers.  This was before we got into eating right for our blood types.  We figured they were good foods, so let him have them frequently.  A couple of years later, he had severe rashing on his shins that the doctors couldn't seem to clear up.  My daughter took him to a lady that does iridology and she got him on the Blood Type Diet.  Cleared it right up.  Turned out he's A blood type (mom OO and dad A?) and those bananas and red peppers are avoids for him.
   It was this situation that got me looking into Eating Right 4 My Blood Type.

The only way your 4yo could possibly  be an O is if she's not your biological child. If she's adopted or you got pregnant via donor eggs, then she could be an O; otherwise she's either an A or a B.

BCgal, I stand corrected  ;D
I know it's not necessarily so, it just seems that with my 5yo daughter it's like that - she loves chicken and turkey, doesn't like meat that much, recently stopped eating bananas she used to love etc.
Actually, I hope my boy's an O for his sake; he'd eat tomato with anything and everything  ;D
I'm sure his bloodtype's in his med records, it's just not written down on his card. I'll have to ask next time we go.

Thanks...thats what I thought, because of what I learned about punnett squares in 8th grade science class.......
We believe my deceased father in law was an O and that my deceased mother in law was an Ao. Her first born was an A, her second was an O (with many complications during and after birth), and the third is an A.
The second born is my husband. He turned out to be the tallest, biggest boned, most hyperactive, smartest and most healthy until recently diagnosed with A-Fib.
The oldest has had a pacemaker for 10 years and the youngest was just diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia.
