  1. My fav was my first GI visit 12 yrs ago. A quick behind glove test, and then back to his office for the results. Dr.: "Stop stressing out, and this should go away" Me : (nearly crying from being so sick) "ok" not knowing better back then Dr: "you may also want to pick up some Benadryl for those hives and rashes you have on you skin'" So stress causes celiac and Benadryl solves DH?? wouldn't that be grand. Wish I had known better back then. On a positive note my dr now rocks and the medical community is finally starting to handle is seriously.
  2. I have been searching far and wide for actual scientific information on pregnancy nutrition, especially for people with celiac. The problem is that there is so much woo(pseudoscience) mixed in with most pregnancy sites. The baby is too important to chance on some non professional just saying yea this worked for me. I am in my early 30s and the disease took away any pregnancy chances in my 20s. I am not going to get many more chances/years so lets make this count. Hard science only and I will be very appreciative for your help! I am coming to the community for help in finding papers and resources I can trust in developing my meal plans. Finds so far: Mayo clinic pregnancy nutrition site USDA Supertracker food plan organizer / tracker
  3. Going To Start Trying Soon!

    I have had no issues with the Natures Bounty Prenatal tablets. They are labeled as having no: artificial flavor, preservatives, sugar, milk, lactose, soy, gluten, wheat, yeast, shellfish and sodium free. Not pregnant yet, but trying. I also agree with others that say to throw away your non food items for gluten. I ended up having to throw out all my makeup and start over. Even my favorite Burt's beeswax Chapstick isn't safe. Same thing with my soap and shampoo. Who would have thought (vital wheat gluten) was a hair care product. Dove soap, carmex have been good replacements for me. No sense in possibly compromising your kiddo.
