welcome to HealthcareMagic
The blood group of a child will be difficult to predict as there is no perfect formula or any permutation to find it out.The blood group combination is not fatal only problem is that if the female is negative and the child is positive then in such case the mother has to take a Anti-D injection with in 24-48 hours of the child birth.As for the Ultra sound revealing a male child please understand that it is illegal and immoral for the very reason that people in many countries abort the baby when they come to know that it is a female child.

Hi,thanks for query.No the blood group difference will not be fatal to child.You can not predict the blood group of the child at this stage, for baby,in case of different blood group then mother he will not have any problem.Mother has to take anti-d injection for avoiding problem in next pregnancy.For present pregnancy you need to worry.bye.

Dear Sirs,

My name is Mona Mohsem and i am 33 years old. My blood group is O- with high antibodies titer. My husband is O+. I have 4 kids and one abortion. My last kids suffer from high jaundice and blood heamolysis due to the high antibody titer (RH disease).

Recently we did genotyping for my husband in Qatar and he was heterozygous. Therefore there is a chance to have an O- baby without any problems for the baby during pregnancy.

I want to do IVF to select an O- baby boy "to choose the sex and the blood group" before pregnancy by PGD or other ways, is that possible in your hospital? or can you help me to choose a hospital that can offer me this procedure.

Looking forward to hear from you.

I have been trying for a baby and my period was 2 days late (it is always regular) and then for past two days I have very small amounts of light brown blood when going to the toilet, my period is usually heavy and regular and this is very very light and intermitent. I took a pregnancy test today 3 days after period due and it was negative. what could this be. could I be pregnant. I had a miscarriage in September and had similar experience when I had a late period and then small amounts of blood that turned into what I thought was a period then found out I was pregnant at 8 weeks. Is this likely to happen again.
