    like someone said, O is recessive so if your parents carry the dominant allele which is their own blood types, plus they both carry the recessive O allele, and you need two recessive alleles for it to show up in the offspring, then if they happened to get O-O rather than AB-O or B-O then you could well have an O blood type.

    I think I explained that correctly.

    They are now getting me a call back to get me checked. The supervisor said the chance of this happening was ridiculously slim and want to double check that it's ok. Haha!

    The guy on the phone was like "Are you SURE that those are their blood groups", my dad had his on his RAF tags and my mum had it all over her medical records that we have.

    Then he was like..."Erm... are you sure they are your parents?" Haha.

    He went to check with his supervisor and he came back sounding concerned, said that the chances of being blood typed wrong were slim to none but his supervisor was concerned and thinks I need to be retyped.

    Actually a freak of nature!

    Its impossible for the child of an AB mother to be O. Ignore the +/- of the rhesus part.
    Your mother possessed only the genes for A...and B. Not O.

    Which means
    a) Your biological mother was someone else
    b) Your mother's medical record was wrong
    c) Your blood group is not O.

    Common things being common, I'd have to go with b or a.
    Its unlikely to the point of enar impossible to have your grouping wrong.

    Sorry pet.
