That's right, I have NOT had confirmation that it is allergies. The reaction I had to the peanut oil could very well have been a non reaction, more of an anxiety related thing. Don't know, maybe never will?
I am seeing an allergist on Friday, and hopefully he can shed light on this.
Interestingly, shortly after I had my son, I was completely lactose intolerant. I could not eat ANY dairy without severe discomfort for a while. It went away. Pregnancy does some very odd things, that is for sure...

Hey there....are you sure it was lactose intolerance?
It is not unusual to get gallstones while pregnant or immediately after pregnancy.
Dairy has a lot of fat in it...and it could have been gallbladdder attacks.
Anyway, I had a gallstone out 8 months after my first baby and it was cheese that set off the last attack that forced me into surgery.
Just a thought

Well, the only dairy I have really is skim milk, but I suppose that could have been true. It went away after a few months, though, and I have not had a problem since.
How do you get checked for gallstones?

If you don't mind my jumping in, one of the more positive things about having food allergies is the fact that because reading food labels is essential, we find out how much junk is in our food. It's refreshing to read a food label, see that it's safe for my daughter, and that it doesn't have tons of chemicals & preservatives (not that all food is like that!). Then I'll buy that food more. The food companies don't realize how discriminating this group of consumers are.

I have a son who is PA and I think it would be scarier for an adult to become PA because it is something new and shocking. With my son he knows no different, he basically has had it all his life and he knows it is just part of him like having red hair.
Once you find your comfort zone you will find life will get easier. You will know which products are good and ones that are not.
Good luck with the baby
Keep us posted on its birth
