Ladies ever wonder why our bodies were set to kill our off spring?

by

I HAVE PONDERED THIS SINCE COLLEGE WHEN I WAS TAKING AN ANATOMY CLASS AND TOLD MY LAB PARTNERS THAT I WAS TYPE B, AND THEY ALL LOOKED AT ME AS IF I WERE A FREAK , I REMEMBER IN HIGH SCHOOL BIOLOGY DOING OUR BLOOD TYPE AND EVERYONE IN THE CLASS WAS A OR O AND I WAS THE ONLY B AND ON TOP OF THAT MY BLOOD DIDN'T CLUMP, MY TEACHER NEVER SAID ANYTHING TO ME ABOUT IT, HE HAD ME REPEAT IT 3 TIMES AND I HATE NEEDLES. IT WASN'T UNTIL COLLEGE THAT I UNDERSTOOD ABOUT MY BLOOD THAT IS WAS RARE AND THAT I WAS RH-.WHEN I HAD MY SON I GOT RHOGAM SHOTS AT 28 WEEKS AND AFTER BIRTH. THIS IS WHEN I STARTED TO WONDER WHY WOULD MY BODY ATTACK MY CHILD LIKE IT WAS A PARASITE, THIS IS COUNTER INTUITIVE FOR SURVIVAL ,MY BODY WOULD TOLERATE A FIRST CHILD BUT A SECOND CHILD IF NOT NEG LIKE ME WOULD BE KILLED ,TALK ABOUT KEEPING YOUR LINE PURE . WHY DOES THIS OCCUR AND WHY DID IT EVOLVE? THANK YOU  MARLA

I am B negative and my husband B positive.  I had to laugh when I read another poster said B positive men are bossy! He sure is although not aggressive or abusive. He is actually quite gentle and a great father.  But I digress.  Our daughter is B positive also and our son O positive.  I had Hellp Syndrome with both pregnancies and they were 8 years apart.  My pregnancies were normal and healthy until the 36-37 week mark.  I did have the rhogam shot at 28 weeks with my first, then after her birth.  With my son I refused the rhogam at 28 weeks as that is not done in other countries and I felt that I would get the shot after his birth and that should be enough (I had done more research at this point).  My mother is B- also and back in the 70s they only gave Rhogam within 72 hours of giving birth, not at 28 weeks. I should note I also had a miscarriage a couple of months before I conceived my son and they also gave me a Rhogam shot right after I miscarried as there is no way to know what blood type that baby would have been.

I wonder if my husband does not carry the gene for negative blood and that is why I had such difficult births and a miscarriage, whereas my Rh negative mother and A positive father had 3 healthy children and my mother had no problems in her pregnancies. My father clearly must carry the gene for it even if he is Rh positive.
I was also my mother's first so she didn't need the shot with me.
I am also fascinated by the fact that most royalty and many presidents have Rh negative blood.  I read once that it is speculated that Anne Boleyn might have been Rh negative, as her first born was healthy but she only miscarried after that.  Of course, that would mean Elizabeth I was Rh positive.
I am also curious the rate of Hellp Syndrome and pre-eclampsia among Rh negative mothers bearing Rh positive children.

I think we are a different species what some call Aaron or angels sent to watch over mankind in the beginning and live along side of them. Only 1/3 took wives and fell 2/3 did not. The reason are immune system kills our offspring if we mate with an RH positive person is to minimize nephilim offspring. That is my opinion. A bird and an alligator may fall in love nut where will they live and what will their children be capable of.

We were not designed to  procreate with non RH- by our creator. But of course... they teach us the opposite.

This is a theory of mine....but perhaps its punishment dealt to every generation of woman. Why I say this is after reading the Lost Book of the Bible called Enoch, I read what the fallen angels had done with human women and the offsping they created. The woman had offspring that turned out to be the giants, the Nephilim. This intermixing was forbidden by God, and perhaps thats why women with this blood type are being indirectly punished because of the fallen angels' mistakes. I think its very wierd though none of the less. This has to be the reason why these RH- Blood types are so rare.

I have been pondering this mystery for a few years now. It strikes me that the dynamic operating here is akin to the same dynamic that prevents cats and dogs from breeding. In other words, a species barrier of some kind. I have questioned various "professionals" at a number of institutions but I either get " why do you care about something so trivial?"  as an answer , or I get no response at all. This tends to make me think that the O- inheritance came from a different line of descent - obviously it does not include the Rhesus monkey. If I were a professional evolutionist/archaeologist/anthropologist/geneticist etc., I would be darned interested in this anomaly - and I don't understand why it is not being actively pursued. I have also read that once the RhoGam shot has been given, it remains in the body forever - does anyone know if this is, in fact, true? Keep up the good dialogue!

I was never told any of that either. I still am lost at the type B for a woman, is this unusual? My mom has B. Children have eluded my life.

For Reborn and others on this thread- I just wrote a long post on the "Tell me something about Rh- I don't know"  that may suggest some answers to this thread as well.

I don't claim to know everything, that's for sure. However, if negative blood women keep breeding with positive blood men negative blood types are going to die out. Maybe we should take a lesson from Koreans who follow this as closely as we here in America follow our Astrological signs. Most Korean women will not date a B positive man because they are supposed to be bossy and aggressive, even possibly abusive.

 

Just a thought, but if you were the scientific community that believed in evolution, wouldn't you want to keep the facts concerning  negative blood out of the news?  I mean, how could we have evolved from apes when we don't have the Rhesus factor?  Something to think about..........

Hi everyone.

 

I agree Marla it is very strange.  I was told so very little about the what's and why's; just that I had to take RhoGAM or not be able to have more children.  Later in life I looked into RhoGAM and was surprised to find that it is a human blood product.  I was more surprised to find out it had Mercury in it at the time I recieved it. I was even MORE surprised that I did not get a good understanding of these facts from my doctors. 

 

There has to be a real explaination for this strange behavior of our bodies.

 

When I went into my children's pediatrician years later to try and find out their blood types, it was an uphill battle. It was like my doctor was keeping a big secret or protecting the information.  Why is there so little information out there available to us?
