Any one been in this situation before?

I know you are supposed to be the same blood type as either of your parents.. for example My "mother" is an O and my dad is an O

when i went into labor they checked my blood type as usual like they always do, an im an A+.. Makes me wonder did my "mother" lie to my dad about him being the father?

has anyone ever been in this situation? I mean I love my dad hes all i have.. even if he isn't my dad id still consider him my dad... im so confused.

  • I think if both of your parents are o then you should be also. Not positive but I thought that was the way it worked.

  • I thought if your parents had O blood type you could end up with something else, but if YOU have O one of your parents had to.....but I could be totally off!

  • i would just do some research and see what all i could find that would be very shocking to find out

  • Without going into too much detail, it is genetically possible. My mother is B-, my father A+ , and I am O+. I definitely look like them both, lol, so I'm not the mailman's.

  • either one is not an "o" or one isn't your parent.. two o's won't make an A... sorry

  • I always thought that if both of your parents are both "O", then you will have that blood type me and my BF have the same type blood and both of our boys are "O". Is it possible that one of them is wrong about their blood type?

  • if both of your parents are both O then yes there has been some deception some where. It could be possible that one of your parents are O and one of your parents are OA giving you a 50% chance of being A. A and B genotypes are dominant over O.

  • at KatiemomNY there is a very simple explanation to you being O+. Your blood type consists of 2 alleles. AA, AB, AO, BB, BO, OO. A and B are dominant over O. Your mother has to be BO (B) and your father has to be AO (A) which gives you a 1 in 4 chance of being O.
