12 weeks pregnant. Husband is allergic to peanuts?

I am 12 weeks pregnant. My husband is allergic to peanuts. I read somewhere that if the father has a peanut allergy that the pregnant woman should not eat peanuts during pregnancy or while breastfeeding because it could cause the unborn baby to have a peanut allergy too... Is there any truth to this?

I'm sure with the father having a peanut allergy it makes the baby more susceptible to having that allergy.  I don't know how accurate it is but you may just want to avoid it to be on the safe side.  Good luck.
