Thanks guys. I actually wondered where you have been Julie. I go for my 20 week ultra sound Monday so I'll update my info then...after it's confirmed to be just one baby.

Saskmommy, Looking forward to hearing about your update. Are you thinking you might be having twins? Wouldn't that be something!

I've been off the chat because we were doing some pretty extensive home renovations, so it was pretty all-consuming. Life is pretty much back to normal now in our "new" old home.

Twins are common in both in both my husbands and my family. My husbands dad is a twin, his maternal grandpa, my cousins and at least 4 sets in my grandmothers' siblings. I don't feel like its twins...but genetics are definitely in our favor.

We were doing home renos in August and part of September. It was pretty crazy. I just hated the disorganization. Then when it came to getting my house back in order I was feeling light headed and sick to the stomach. We replaced all bedroom carpet with hardwood and all lino with tile. In all about 1200 sqaure feet of flooring replaced and furniture moved everywhere...and mattresses everywhere just trying to sleep somewhere. Oh, and then the kitchen. I had a fridge and a microwave in my dining room for a few days. Boy am I glad that is over. But it was worth it. Having hardwood in the bedrooms is so nice. What did you do Julie?

Wow Saskmommy... we were going through the exact same reno in the exact same timeframe! How ironic! We did a complete kitchen renovation (gutted the cabinets, knocked out a few walls) and replaced all of our mainfloor carpeting with hardwood and ceramic. We are absolutely thrilled with the work, but it was quite something have a "kitchen" in our master bedroom!!! And, of course, we couldn't eat out anywhere (it's so funny how many of the contractors "assume" you're eating out all the time!) Our entire main floor was in complete chaos - it was just like moving! We had to remove all the main floor furnishings,, so it was a LOT of work! The kids did really well wtih it all because we kept calling the upstairs bedroom "the hotel", so they managed really well and we did our best to make it an adventure. Anyway, it's all over now and we've moved back in, so life is slowly getting back to normal... and I'm now doing my best to get caught up with everybody and what is happening on the Allergic Living chat It was great to hear your good news!

I kinda wish we'd done our remodelling before the babe was born. Having one's kitchen torn up when one has a babe-in-arms is less than fun.

But it's so worth it now.

Congrats, by the way!

I've been soy-free and gluten-free for awhile and was a vegetarian for years, but I started eating meat when I got pregnant. I needed calories and protein and it was just easier to get it from meat, given all my other allergies.

My brother and sister in law are expecting. Our families are closely connected since my brother married my husband's sister. We have a strong history of allergies in our family. Everyone in my immediate and my husband's has some allergic condition (asthma, eczema, environmental or food allergies). My mother and mother in law have asked our opinion about diet but not the pregnant couple. I told them that although there is no definitive answers about diet during pregnancy that if it were me, I would avoid nuts. I did that for my second pregnancy. It seems that most people here on the forum restrict diets too. Any opinions?
