Are you saying your blood was listed as A+ or the baby's blood was A+? This would make a difference. But, if you were mistyped, the encouraging thing is that if you ever received a blood transfusion there would be extra cautions and testing done (type and crossmatch) to be sure you are safe. I don't know the reason for the error if it was your blood recorded and not that of your baby here.
Are you certain that you are O+ or was that the erroneous typing? It would be good to follow up and check your records. If and when you needed a transfusion in the future, be sure to ask them (or have your next of kin) what type blood they are bringing in to you. Of course this would only be helpful if you are absolutely certain of your type and the accuracy of that screening.
If you donate blood, you would receive a card indicating your blood type.
