mommy2be added a topic in Celiac Disease - PregnancyBreastfeedingI am exclusively pumping my breast milk and feeding my baby. My question is...if I were to accidentally ingest gluten, could I "pump and dump". If I can, how much should I dump? How long should I dump? How long does it take for the gluten ingested to enter into my milk and effect my baby?
Any information on this would be much appreciated.

mommy2be added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pregnancy34 Weeks And "mildly Positive"*hanging my head in shame* I am 34 weeks today and I have not been 100% gluten free. My baby girl seems fine. She is very active and everything reported normal on my 19 week ultrasound and my prenatal bloodwork (didn't show I was anemic) I was diagnosed from my bloodwork as being mildly positive(whatever that means) two days before I found out I was pregnant.
I go for a couple weeks going gluten free(could possibly be cross contamination in there but I'm not really sensitive so I don't know for sure) and then I cheat. I read all the time on this subject but I guess wanted to get some input from other Celiacs.
Do I have reason to be concerned that my baby girl will be born with problems? I am a nervous wreck about this and I am so scared that my lack of self control on eating gluten could have harmed my first baby...I am so frustrated with myself that my constant concern for the well-being of my daughter has not completely kept me from being totally gluten free:(
Thank you for your time.

mommy2be added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsBlood Test Results OpionsI wanted to post my blood test results to see what other opinions are. I'm not sure how I can be "mildly" positive so I was hoping for more insight
tTG IgA (U/mL) range 0-15 result: 25
Gliadin IgA (U/mL) range 0-15 result: 1
Gliadin IgG (U/mL) range 0-15 results: 1
IgA, Total (mg/dL) range 69-309 results: 397
I found out I was pregnant 2 days after receiving these results and I'll be honest...I haven't gone 100% gluten free. My pregnancy has been going well and my baby girl seems to be fine. I'm currently 28 weeks.
Thank you for your time!
