This is just something I've had mulling around in my brain. How many of us have first born PA children? Now, this question also includes people that have more than one PA child. Or, and it also includes PA adults - are you the first born in your family?

Is your firstborn child (with the same partner always) PA?

My firstborn child is PA. My second child is not.

It's my 2nd that is PA! Both are asthmatic, allergic kids, thought. Which I suppose is to be expected of asthmatic, allergic parents! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Sorry Cindy but mine is the opposite. My first child is not PA and my second is. My PA is a boy though. I wonder if more boys or girls are PA.

Cindy,
Bobby is my first born & so far I don't know if Nicole has PA. They are going to test her soon.
I remember eating PB&J sandwich 1 time while I was pregnant(Maybe Reeses alot, I always use to eat them).
With Nicole I did not remember if I ate anything with peanuts. It wasn't until I was 9 months pregnant when I found out about Bobby's PA.
Take Care
Ronna

AmyR., now that is an AWFULLY GOOD question - are you going to ask it or what? Please? I must say, it is excellent and I would be very interested first of all in posting an answer and second of all seeing how the discussion went. C'mon, please cut me a break with thread starting!

Oh, and I just wanted to say to those of you who didn't know if your second child was PA or not because they have never been exposed to peanut products - I was in the same boat too until two months ago when I had my daughter tested. Otherwise, my answer would have been the same as yours. I had her tested, at just over 3 years of age, so I would know whether she was PA or not before entering the public school system at the age of 4. I just found out at the end of October that she was not PA (and I should reservedly put in, "at this time", but I'm not going to, I just simply feel she isn't - I do understand you can develop an allergy at any time and I'm going to leave that one be, rather than doing overkill because her brother is PA, like having her tested again and again).

Both of my children, girls, are PA. The younger one has never had a reaction or an exposure, but has tested positive.
