During the third pregnancy your body was exposed with certain fetus's contents and that event could create a cascade of immunologic reactions. Since then, your body had new antibodies against the antigens that you had not had before the third pregnancy which can explain the spring allergy in the last couple years. Unfortunately, this sensitization is likely permanent.
