  1. Thanks. We ended up switching her back to her original formula and everything is fine now. She seems to not be able to digest Enfamil, but Similac is great.
  2. My 3 month old has been having a lot of trouble with constipation. She doesn't have Celiac Disease as far as we know. We switched her to a soy based formula and that helped for a couple of days, but now she's back to how she was before. Any suggestions?
  3. Celiac And 4 Months Pregnant

    Wow... I've never met anyone besides me and my sister who has Celiac... That's really cool that your husband does too.
  4. Is Tylenol Safe?

    I have back problems and stopped taking my pain meds when I found out I was pregnant and it is hurting pretty bad... I was wondering if Tylenol was safe to take while pregnant? I have heard it is but want to be sure. Thanks!
  5. Low Progesterone Levels

    Just letting everyone know.... I just got a call from the doctor and my levels are up! My progesterone went from about 13 to 140-something. I'm sooo happy!
  6. Constipation

    Thanks for posting this! I'll definately try it!
  7. Pregnant And Hungry

    Hello there! I have been gluten-free for 5 years and have definitely found staples. I try to find "normal" things I can get anywhere b/c there isn't a health food store in my town. I, personally, love LUNA bars. They don't say they're gluten free, but they are 100% wheat free, and don't contain any gluten products (except for oats, which can be iffy). They don't bother me at all and I'm very sensitive. Some of the CLIFF bars Are ok too, you just have to read those carefully b/c not all of them are. I also love yogurt (yo-plait is fine), frozen yogurt, many of the Quaker rice cakes are ok, too. I'm about 5 weeks pregnant right now and was living on dark chocolate, bananas, and LUNA bars for the majority of the last two weeks but now want everything in sight! Cranberry sauce, carrots w/ BBQ sauce ( I know it's weird), meat, cheese.... It goes on and on! Also, if you're craving pizza Amy's brand has glutem free one that's really good. An amazing brand that I actually order online and have shipped to me is Sami's Bakery. They have the best gluten free breads, wraps, etc. And they're very reasonably priced. Google Sami's Bakery and it should pop right up. Not everything they have is gluten free though, so sift through it. ope that helps some
  8. Low Progesterone Levels

    Thanks! I just had blood work done yesterday and should get the results mon/tue and I'm going to go in asap for supplements. I'm just so glad it's not just me.
  9. Low Progesterone Levels

    Thanks so much!
  10. Hi everyone! I just found out I'm pregnant, but my progesterone levels are really low. I have a doctor's appt tomorrow to have it checked again. I'm really nervous that it has dropped and I'll misscarry... (Again. I have been pregnant 3 times in the past and they resulted in 2 miscarriages and 1 still birth). Has anyone else had this problem? Can they supplement the progesterone? Thanks!
  11. Constipation

    I have actually struggled from constipation for years. I have been gluten-free (with the occasional contamination of course) for about 5 years now but my GI tract is so damaged that I actually have to do enemas weekly... Probably for the rest of my life. I have tried everything in the past and nothing works except for magnesium citrate (which is herrendous) and fleet enemas. I just found out I'm pregnant and am concerned about this issue since I know it's not good to use enemas while pregnant. If anyone knows anything about this that would greatly help. Thanks.
  12. Celiac And Infertility

    I have never had a problem conceiving, infact, the two times I have I was on 2 different forms of bc... However, both ended badly (the 1st with a still birth and the 2nd with a misscaraige) and I agree that it isn't just conceiving that's a major problem, it's the pregnancy itself. At least that's what it is for me. We want to start trying soon and I have been scouring the net for info on Celiac and pregnancy and what might help. I wanted to also thank all of you who previously replied. You answered a lot of my questions as well
  13. Ttc?

    I was just reading through the resposes on here and wanted to thank you for yours. I had a VERY complicated pregnancy that ended in disaster. I was ingesting gluten (unknowingly) at the time and was sick from day one. It's soooo reassuring to hear that soemone else had a bad experience with their 1st pregnancy, but a great 2nd. Thank you so much for adding what the doc said in there, too. ~Melinda~
  14. Thank you! I will get definately follow your advice
  15. Hello everyone! I am new to the forrum and have a few questions.... I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 5 years ago (when I was 18). My husband and I would like to get pregnant in the near future. This is a major step for me b/c we had a VERY bad experience with preggos about 2 years ago. I was on BC pills at the time and was completely surprised. I tested neg until I was 7 wks along and at that time I couldn't keep ANYTHING down. Everyone told me that was normal and would pass in a few weeks..... It didn't. It only got owrse. They prescribed me Phenergan and B12 but it didn't help at all. I literally couldn't get out of bed. I ended up hospitalized at 4 1/2 months with a feeding tube, IV electrolites, an array of meds (all preggo safe) and was there almost 2 months. One night I started crashing and the next morning we found that I had lost the baby. It was coded a still birth and it took me several months to regain my strength again. Basically, I'm very scared. I'm scared of getting sick like that again. We just recently had a misscaraige (about 4wks along) and I had an IUD (non-hormonal). That is out now, lol, obviously..... OK... Sorry about the long winded post. I'm just nervous and hoping to find some info. Thanks! ~Melinda~
