  • Everyone has two genes for blood type. These genes control which antigens your body produces. Since you have A type, then your body produces type A antigens.

    You could have AA, or AO. Either would give you A blood. If you both had AO, then your kid could end up with OO, meaning no antigens.

    The child will have either A or O type blood.
