I think the only reason I know is because my ex and I were both in the Army.  Blood type is put on the dog tags, at least it was when we were in which was a number of years ago.  I remember one of my kids is a type B and the other two are type A.  The only reason I remember was because it was on the card on their bassinet in the Army hospitals.

O+. I also have it in my dog tag, as I was in the Navy.

Where my cats are
A-.  They confirmed it when I was pregnant with my first; which is good because I my parents and I all thought I was A+.
  I also had to bring documentation of DH's blood type.

No idea.

I was advised to get it checked before I moved to Japan because people think it says a lot about your personality over here, the same way we think the month you were born in can influence your personality, but I never did.

I'm a very tidy person though, and I've got a thing about having everything symmetrical, which is supposed to be a typical O blood type trait.

But you may be asked to donate.
i would donate my blood, no problem. i'm sure they'd test it though, to be sure of the blood type. but my blood type is probably in my medical records, as i've had blood work done before.

I'm glad I am not the only person that doesn't know!

I'd rather not say, but my advice for ANYONE who knows what their blood type is is to mark on their hand their known blood type with a permanent marker if they have to be in a hospital. My best friend told me at least two dozen times she was O -, but went into shock and died within 12 hours after being given B+ blood in the ICU. Her life had been threatened two years before, and a woman possibly linked to the threat was working in that same hospital lab at the time she received the "accidentally " incorrect blood type.
