i don't know if anyone can help me. I'm currently 16 weeks pregnant and read somewhere that if you have a history of asthma, hay fever, ezcema, allergies (which i do) you should avoid peanuts in pregnancy in case it increases the risk of your unborn child having these conditions. However, then I went to the midwife who said by avoiding peanuts it may actually make it worse as a child might react badly to peanuts etc. if they have never had them/come into contact with them before. So, now I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any advice/experience? thanks.
