Anyone else develop an allergy to food during pregnancy??

Last time it was bananas (although I already had problems with latex and I've heard those two go hand in hand). Just the other day it was watermelon. And I just ate some watermelon a couple weeks ago.

My stomach feels ichy on the inside and my throat and chest get tight. Nothing life threatening at the moment, just super annoying.

Hmmm... I don't know if it's an allergy, but I react badly to Tings now. :-( I get a funny feeling like I need to burp SO bad, like there's an air bubble pressed hard against the top of my stomach. It's quite painful, actually.

I think it's probably the nutritional yeast.

was it an organic watermelon? I get the same sensation from conventional watermelons but not from organic ones... I'm thinking it's probably pesticide related. (for me at least)

I reacted to banana's last time too! I've never heard of anyone else reacting to banana's. AND, I have a super sensitivity to latex and adhesives.

BUT, I love banana's this time and I'm not itching or throwing up from them.

BUT, I fear I may be lactose intolerant right now. I can't even enjoy ice cream without tummy cramping and nausea. Weird.
