[img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] (just around 32 now, and IL's *still* don't know.........) But then again, we haven't eaten at "Texas Roadhouse" with them either.

Which reminds me. While cleaning and reorganizing to make room for our new addition, I found some "almond body scrub" and "almond bath" products she bought me for Christmas a few years back (same holiday there were bowls of nuts, a catered dinner, and may contain crackers and dip everywhere) that I had been holding on to waiting for an opportunity to give back to her. (opened later than the party). Oh, and that was the party where she tried to make me promise I wouldn't ask any questions about the ingredients or preparation of the food from my SIL before feeding my child since she said my SIL had been soooooooooooooo careful and checked.

I went to that restaurant with my sister tonight because she wanted to take me out for my birthday and I wanted steak. There was NO sign on the door and I had never been there before. (Shoulda checked on here before we went) Anyways, they had the big barrel of peanuts by the front door and I asked if they were at everytable and she said yes. I saw shells and everything on the floor so I just said "I can't eat here." and we left and went to Mountain Jacks. I, myself, am not allergic but DS is. I couldn't imagine going there, getting all of the dust, oils, and so on all over me and then going home to my cute little man. I just got done emailing them and if I don't hear a response I'm going to drive by there in a couple of weeks to see if they have a sign up yet. If not I will call them and the health dept. like someone else on here said they did. I don't expect people to change their ways, just give a heads up!

I've known her for 19 years. I can't argue she's not consistent. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

April 19th. thank you. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I've never went past 37 weeks, (so I'm hoping by the end of March) and today the OB called to discuss some lab results. He mentioned the "C" word. (caesarian). Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm maybe I should reraise the "advance maternal age" thread........

Why a c-section Mammabear?
I am a c-section veteran, having had 2. Its really not so bad. I know that you already have 2 children, and yes you are in the hospital longer and recover time is longer, but within 2 weeks you usually feel pretty good. I was in for 5 days with the first and they told me that I could have gone home in 3 days with the second (I knew what to expect, so I was able to deal with the pain much better the 2nd time around).
If you do have a c-section a boppy pillow is a must for (1)feeding the baby whether you breast or bottle and (2)sneezing. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I'm discussing it with him on Monday, but as I understand it, and I could be wrong, due to several herniated and bulging disks in my back. Don't really know yet. Maybe I misunderstand him. Don't know if this is "proper" methodology or not. But I am experiencing neurological deficits in the lower extremeties now.
