Where did Christ get his blood from?

Seeing there was no male seed present and we know with the human seed is what carries life, for the the life is in the blood. When conception takes place it is the male seed that is laced with blood that gives life to the woman’s egg, thus providing the blood that flows through the child. Where did Christ’s blood come from?

Blood doesn't come exclusively from the male seed; all the baby's genetic characteristics are combined from both parents. Scripture only states that "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you." (Luke 1:35) We aren't told how the other 23 chromosomes were combined with Mary's egg, but in any case it was supernatural. 

We also know from Heb. 2:14 that Jesus "shared in our humanity", and from vs. 17 that "he had to be made like us in every respect". By having God as his father and Mary as his mother, he added human nature to his divine nature (see Phil. 2:5-11). 

Many raise these questions in hope of supporting a theory of sin passed through genetics, specifically males, which is why they suppose Jesus had to be born of a virgin. But scripture says no such thing; after all, if sin nature can be passed genetically, so should righteous nature from saved parents, and we know this doesn't happen. The simple fact is that Jesus had to be both divine and human in order to reconcile the two.
