Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das,
Firstly,there is no problem of both the parents of being same blood group. It does not have any harmful effect on child's health. If your wife would have negative blood group then it would be harmful for your baby.
Secondly, your future baby will have B+ blood group according to Mendelian Law.
