I am not sure of mine or my parent's blood types, but my sister's is O-negative and is Rh-negative. Does this mean I am also Rh-negative? And is it possible that mine and my husband's blood types, which could be incompatible, kept me from conceiving from 8 years?

There is no blood group combination between couples that has known to cause problems in conception.
