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.
