mandigirl1 added a topic in Celiac Disease - PregnancyRecomendations For A Good Pediatrician In Ny?I know I might not get many repsonses from this, but I thought Id try, you never know...
I live in Queens, NY and looking for a really good pediatrician, one who is patient, caring and takes the time to listen. Also, one who has experience with children with food allergies or a GI background. Im anticipating having difficulty with my baby once hes born regarding feeding. I have celiac disease and hes lived off my gluten-free diet in the womb for 9 months. Im concerned what to feed him and when to test him for celiac disease. Therefore, Im looking for a good, recommended experienced pediatrician.
If anyone can help, please do, I would really appreciate it!

mandigirl1 added a topic in Celiac Disease - PregnancyWhich Formula Is gluten-free?Thank you to everyone who has answered my questions in the past 9 months, regarding pregnancy and celiac disease.
My latest concern is what to fee the baby once he's here.....
which formula is gluten-free? How will I know if my baby has celiac disease and reacting to formula or doesnt have celiac disease and just doesnt take to the formula for other reasons?
Im not going to breastfeed, although Ive heard its the best thing for the baby.
If the baby ws used to feeding off my gluten-free diet for 9 months, why should I introduce non gluten-free foods at all? Wont that get him sick because he never had it when he was in the womb? Does anyone have any ideas? Much appreciated.....Thanks

mandigirl1 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pregnancy8 Months Pregnant---need AdviceHello,
A few moths ago I posted a question regarding when and how to test your newborn baby for Celiac....I didnt get a lot of responses though. Im hoping that more people will read this post and have some advice/suggestions....
Does anyone have experience testing their baby for Celiac? Im 8 months pregnant and wont be breastfeeding, so Im wondering what kind of formula does the baby need? Which one is safe? When do you test? How? Im wondering if I should contact Colombia Univ. Celiac Center (I once saw Dr Green for a visit when I was diagnosed 10 years ago) and see if they could help.....Any opinions on this?
Also, does anyone know of a NY pediatrician who has experience or specialty in Celiac? Or, in general, does anyone have a good pediatrican they can recommend in the NYC area? Im trying to find a doctor now before the baby comes, but I find it difficult to chose one? Obviously Id like to get a recommendation and am asking friends/family members too. I figured Id try here to since this is a helpful website with other caring Celiacs, who can and do, really help one another.
Thank you for any help at all!!!

mandigirl1 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pregnancy6 Months PregnantI have known about my celiac disease for 10 years now. Ive always been on the thin side. Ive never gained a lot of weight. Now, naturally, at 6 months pregnant, Ive gained weight. Ive put on 35 pounds already. Im just hungry all the time! I must admit I do eat sugar, such as rice pudding and chocolate, such as Reeses PNB Cups. I have a gluten-free bagel every morning with cheese. I eat a lot of carbs, not much protein (Im a vegetarian, but eat chicken and eggs to be healthy for my baby). Are there any other pregnant Celiacs who have put on a lot of weight? Or are hungry all the time? Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to eat thats satisfying (filling?) Is it "normal" for a pregnant Celiac to gain so much at 6 months? Does this mean more weight gain over the next few months also and delivering a bigger baby?
I also stopped exercising at the gym since Ive been preg. due to sheer laziness and bad naseau in the beginning. I am active though, since I am a 4th grade teacher, on my feet and up and down 4 flights everyday!
Can anyone shed some light/advice? Thanks!
Also, I have posted a question on here about when to test your baby for celiac disease. So, if anyone also has info on this, that would be great too!
