Pregnancy and Allergy Development AKMommy1013 2 kids; Valdez, Alaska 31 posts

I'm looking to see if anyone has any information or experience with developing allergies during pregnancy.

My first pregnancy (my son was born c-section 12/05/2010) I developed mild allergies to Zofran (made me sick) tuna (itchy) and citrusy fruits (itchy). Most of the food allergies went away a few months after birth. I didn't worry to much about it.

My second pregnancy (my daughter was born c-section 3/22/2013) I developed mild allergies to chicken, and a hand full of veggies (both caused itching) so again, I didn't worry. Well... Until after my 2nd C-Section when they gave me Morphine and my throat swelled shut. It did the same thing with Darvocet when they tried it instead. Both painkillers were ones I'd had safely with my first C-Section.

I've been googling for info but I can't find anything about this. My anasthesiologist said he'd heard of it but its rare. I'd like to read what I can on it so I know what to expect in the future! And if I can expect to eventually get over the allergies to the medications.

I developed an allergy to my wooden toilet seat with during this pregnancy. Pregnancy does some bizarre things!

I didn't have a reaction to meds or foods or anything...but when I was pregnant my hands would break out in hives and get swollen if I touched dishsoap. Didn't matter what would always happen.
3 1/2 months later, it still happens sometimes, but not as often

Hmm... Well it's nice to know I'm not alone! Wish I could find info on it though! :) glad to hear that most of your allergies went away. That gives me hope.
