I can't believe it took me this long to realize this board was here!

Anywho, I'm Sara, 22y/o and 29 weeks pregnant with my first I have horrible, life threatning allergies to seafood and iodine. I have gone into anaphylaxis (throat closes, mouth and tongue swell, can't breathe!) quite a few times through the years. The latest incident was in October when I ordered chinese food and they gave me a shrimp eggroll by accident. Needless to say I took a couple of bites and had to call 911. The reaction seemed to stay with me for quite a few days because I was back in the hospital about four times with reoccuring symptoms. Thankfully I have an epipen with me at all times now, but it's still extremely scary... I don't even go out to eat anymore to places that serve seafood in fear of cross contamination

I am very worried that I will pass my horrible food allergies along to my daughter... luckily her father has no allergies what so ever, so hopefully she will be like him!

I look forward to chatting and getting to know you all

hi and welcome! sounds like you went through quite an ordeal. i'm allergic to seafood also, but fortunately don't have reactions to it very often, so i eat it anyway (i know, i'm bad!)
i hope your baby doesn't get your allergies, but at least if she does, you kinda know what to expect!
hope to see you around here!
