If there is no one else in the bloodline with an allergy it's safe to eat nuts.

My sister has a fatal nut allergy so I've been told to avoid all nuts but if, like yummy mummy says, you have no blood relative with a nut allergy you should be fine.
Having said that my mum craved nuts when she was pg with my sis, so perhaps it's best to eat them in moderation just to be sure!

its hard isnt it...My hubby has mild reaction to walnuts and mother in law to all nuts plus hubby brothers have asthma so i have avoided them throughout pregnancy
But on the other hand i was wondering whether i should eat nuts to stop allergies forming in my baby - who knows there is so much advice!
sorry no help!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
