I’m not pregnant, but I’ve defintely have allergies develop/ worsen over time and with repeated exposure.  I had no allergies as a kid but now I take several medications to keep my allergies under control (and try to limit contact with known allergens etc).

When I was pregnant, I found out I have some metal allergies (I can basically only wear 14k or higher yellow gold).  I never had a reaction to non-gold metals before, but I had to stop wearing my wedding ring (white gold) when I was about 5 months pregnant because I broke out with this funky rash that would not go away.  My doctor said that I probably always had the allergy, but repeated exposure and pregnancy might have made it more severe.  I haven’t tried to wear my ring since having Addie; unfortunately, I lost it when I took it off in February.  Frown

Lol, thanks!  In other news, I think my husband might have bought me a new ring for Christmas.  🙂  He was being very sneaky yesterday.
