It can happen. Don't b unnecessarily worried about it. It's like this Rh factor has again two sub groups. Its called as genotype. To eloberate Rh positive factor will have two genotype combination like Rh +be will have two genotypes Rh+,Rh+ or Rh+,Rh-ve whereas Rh - will have only Rh-,Rh- So in all this mathematics as both of you r Rh positive your child due to above shown combination inherited Rh - If both of you were Rh negative your child could have got only Rh negative as there is no other possibility. Hope you could understand. So stop worrying
