ABO Blood type incompatibility. Who are in this situation?
« on: July 04, 2013, 08:33:38 pm »

Hi parents and future parents.  :D
I would like to ask for opinions sana. i just gave birth with my daughter. I am blood type 'O' while she got her father's blood type which is 'A'. Because me and my daughter have different blood type, my baby turned yellow (had Jaundice) few days after birth so we had her admitted and placed under phototherapy. Thank God she's alright now. My OB adviced us to not have another baby within 2 years kasi daw para mag clear up muna yung anti-A na naproduce ng body ko and she said mas worse daw ang effect pag magkasunod silang puro incompatible sa akin. Me and my  husband really wants to have another baby soon. If jaundice lang ang effect nito, we are willing to take the risk and put the baby under phototherapy uli but if worse, huwag nalang. As I research about ABO incompatibilty, sabi naman sa mga articles na it does not get worse in next pregnancies unlike RH incompatibility kaya nalilito ako if tama ba yung OB ko. I wanna know if there are moms or dads who are in the same situation? What did your OB say about birth spacing? And sino po nka experience na magkasunod na puro ABO incompatible? sana po my mka sagot nito  :( We really love to have another baby    :-[

Hmm.. Mukhang walang nasa parehong sitwasyon ko. O baka hindi ito na bring up ng ob ninyo. So is this a go signal?  :) I am still breastfeeding exclusively so baka hindi pa ako fertile for now. But once fertile na ako. Maybe hubby and I can try for another baby. If someone can read this na may knowledge tungkol sa ABO incompatibility, I hope mkapag share din so that I will know if ok na talaga ako magnbuntis agad or huwag muna.  :) Comments will be much appreciated. :) thank you!

Hi sis,

Not aware of that actually.
Pero me and my son kasi di pareho ng bloodtype, "O" siya ako naman "B+"
Pero wala namang ganyang findings sa akin.

Hi ChinitaQueen!

Now ko lang nakita topic mo. Hope it's not yet too late.
Im Blood type O, hubby is blood type A, and my first-born son is type A too. Btw, my baby is turning 5mos pa lang next week, i gave birth via cs last March. Anyway, @32nd hours of life ni Liam, nag-show na sya ng yellowish color niya. Good suck naman si baby but he was placed under phototherapy. He was discharged after 5 days though may jaundice pa sya. Im a nurse naman kase and was assigned in the neonatal icu/nursery and the pedia is my friend. Pedia suggested that i continue phototherapy at home tulad din ng ginagawa namin sa hospital. Luckily, hubby is an engineer so he researched how to make a homemade phototherapy :) so sa bahay ko na tinuloy yung phototherapy ni baby for 5more days na na-resolve naman :)

Heto lang tinanong ni pedia ko.. Sa family ba ni hubby puro type A sila or wala ni isa man na type O? If yes, there is a possibility na mag-jaundice uli next baby namin pero she didnt mention the years kung kelan pwedeng sundan si baby and hindi na din ganun katindi tulad ng first baby. In my personal belief, the age gap of the babies has no bearing sa magiging blood type ni next baby dahil sa cross-matching theory (learned this way back high school, biology..hehe)...

Also, pedia said, If meron naman may blood type O sa family ni hubby, mas less chance na magja-jaundice ng matindi si next baby. Kasi yung kay Liam super high ng Bilirubin level niya kasi sa family ni hubby puro type A sila. If 2 yrs na si baby mo, i think pwede mo na sundan. Kasi si OB ko, 2yrs din sinuggest niya..alam nyang nagka blood type incompatibility kami ni Liam. Kung hindi nga lang ako cs gusto niya every year na kasi naghahabol kami sa age ko. Hehe! I youf are still having doubts i suggest that you consult the pedia not the OB kasi mas kabisado ni pedia ang conditions ng mga babies.

Hi mga mother sisters. Thank you so much for your helpful replies... Ang saya ko while reading your replies.  ;D

SheIsErika, thanks for sharing. So may chance din pala hindi magka jaundice kahit iba ang blood type. Yipee.. :)

Nanay ni Liam, I'm glad your baby liam is ok na despite the high bilirubin level. By the way, if lalaki yung baby ko Jaycoson Liam sana name niya kaya lang naging girl kaya hindi ko na apply ang name na na isip ko haha... Nice boy name yan.. Congrats! :) Sa side naman ni husband, 'O' ang mama niya, yung papa niya ang 'A' so in that case, mas malaki chance na hindi na jaundice next baby namin right? :) . Kami din gusto na namin madaliin. Kasi gusto ni hubby sunod sunod ang anak para later, focus na kami sa pag earn ng money instead sa pag alaga ng baby. Plus traditional Chinese kasi sila kaya gustong magka boy na agad agad...  :P Thanks for the suggestion. i'll ask my pedia on our next appointment. Ang galing naman, :) may own phototherapy lights kayo sa bahay. Gusto ko din nyan nuon kasi mahirap pag nka confine si baby sa hospital. Pina Sunlight  exposure nalang namin sya daily after madischarge sa hospital.

Actually, we tried our best na normal ko maideliver si baby para madali sya masundan agad pero yun pala yung blood type incompatibility namin ni baby ang magiging hadlang. I'll wait kung ano suggestion ni pedia then I'll see kung susundan na namin o hindi.  ;)

Thank you very much!  :-*

i didnt know na magkakaproblem if magka-iba yung blood type ng parents

Im A+ and my ex is Type B.  i gave birth thru CS and jaundice din yung baby ko. she went thru phototherapy for 10days then sa bahay na tinuloy.

Hindi man lang inexplain dati ng pedia  tungkol sa reason why jaundice yung baby ko and no one mention about about blood incompatibility.

Thanks for sharing this

same here sis..im type O si hubby AB si baby type B..ayun jaundice nga super high din ng bilirubin niya and nagdouble photo therapy sya (up and down) nung una kasi single lang sa taas lang ata yung light but then dinoble na kasi nahihirapan ata sila pababain.pag labas ni baby sa hospital pinaarawan na lang namin sya everyday yun din ang bilin ng neonatologist sabi pa nga e twice a day kaso nagkataon naman na ginagawa yung street namin nun so napaka alikabok na sa hapon atleast sa morning kasi wala pa gumagawa kaya ok lang the pag weekend and walang holidays dinadala namin sya sa may bay area dun namin sya pinapa arawan mabilis naman sya naging ok during nung 1st check up namin kay pedia niya after lumabas sa hospital di na sya nagrequire na magpa bilirubin test kasi wala ng bakas ng pagka yellow si baby, very active and maganda mga result ng check ups niya until now na 15 mos na sya super ok pa din and wala naging prob sa kanya except lang mabagal talaga mag gain (though within normal range pa din naman)dahil na rin siguro super active talaga sya then mas gusto maglaro kesa dumede, atleast lang madali sya pakainin ng rice basta gusto niya ang ulam hehe. kaya dont worry too much sis..and by the way wala naman nag advice samin na bawal kami ma baby until 2 yrs, madami ngang tumingin na doctor sa kanya before and lumipat pa kami ng pedia, even si OB wala din sinabi na wag muna, though nabanggit naman nila na yung jaundice nga is possibly because of blood type talaga namin ni hubby.

I'm type A and my husband is type B.  Yung first born ko type A, buti na lang kasi kung nag B siguro ganyan ang magiging problema.  As for my second, type O siya kaya wala naman problema. 

I have a friend na blood typing din ang naging problema at yun baby kelangan i blood transfusion...medyo matagal na kaya hindi ko na maalala.  Better seek for advise from another OB, mas maganda ng safe kaysa pagsisishan nyo pa ito.  Be safe.

Thanks sis.  :) Ganda din ng girl name mo... Sana nga girl naman sayo 1 year plus from now ;) ako din sana boy na din :)



Hi sis, I'm glad nka tulong ito sa iba na hindi na inform ng doctors nila. Tsaka ko lang din ito nalaman nung buntis na ako nung sinabi sa akin ni OB tapos hindi ko naman seneryoso. Kaya lang nung day 6 ng baby ko, nakita ni pedia yellow na and pag napabayaan daw na tumaas ang bilirubin bka daw mka affect sa brain niya kaya kinabahan na ako don. Well, mahirap naman ito iprevent kasi hindi naman pwedeng tanungin muna natin kung ano ang blood type ni guy tapos pag iba sa atin di na natin sasagutin... Haha.. At lalong wala tayong control kung ano ang blood type ng baby sa tyan natin. Pero kaya nating maging attentive sa color and signs of jaundice ni baby pagkapangak at maagapan natin ang pagtaas ng bilirubin niya pag alam na natin ito.  :)



Thanks for sharing your experience sis, buti ok na si baby mo and active na active na ngayon. :) Aah... Wala palang nabanggit ang pedia and ob mo about wag muna mag buntis til 2 years... Hindi siguro lahat ng ob strict dito :) sana nga pwedeng hindi serysohin yung suggestion ng ob ko hehe...


Huwag naman sana... Pagpanganak mo, kukunan ata nila ng blood type si baby tapos pag iba sa iyo, oobserbahan nila ito kung mag yeyellow. Basta be observant lang sis.. Softly Press his/her skin for 2 sec then release, pagrelease mo yellow sya, pa check mo sa doctor.  Pero usually, hindi naman malala sis... Yung iba sunlight lang yung iba wala talaga. Sana O din hubby mo para no need to worry.



Thanks sa advice sis :) Masmalala na pag blood tranfussion.  :-[ yes better be safe tayo :)
