The most common blood type.

I'm O+ I've donated twice and I don't know what CMV is.



I've also been a recipiant when I suffered a major hemorrhage (2.5 litres in 20 minutes)......I've never been so grateful for people who donate.......people who saved my life.

oh wow was that after giving birth? I'm an L&D nurse and fairly often we have people hemorrhage and have to transfuse them.

What does your husband having a bleeding disorder have to do with you donating..?

I mentally can't donate, I pass out even when they take a small vile for tests.

I used to donate all the time.



I am O-.



I am pretty sure I have nothing special going on CMV wise (just looked it up) I was never told anything about it.



I was told to stop a couple years ago because I passed out. They had to pull the smelling salts...it was very scary for me. :/

I used to all the time too. I somehow got over it. Although I did almost pass out at the end when I donated. The first time I tried to donate I passed out when they pricked my finger to take my iron lol

Does anyone know the weight limit to donate? I seen a lot saying they couldn't due to weight so now I'm wondering if I would even be able to donate.
