Blood Type
Hi All

Could anyone advise me on blood types concerning conceiving.
Would it possible to fall pregnant if I'm 0- and my hubby 0+.
My mother told me once that if two people have different blood types then there could be complications in either falling pregnant and during pregnancy.

Tx Guys!

There will not be a problem falling pregnant, but your body could make antibodies against the baby. This does not usually happen in the first pregnancy and can be prevented in subsequent pregnancies by having a Rhogam injection after delivery.
