waine30 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsAwaiting Diagnosis - Think Pregnancy Triggered It?Hi,
I am hoping for some advice and maybe see if anyone has been in the same situation.
When I was pregnant with my 3rd child - I fell very ill during the last trimester.
I did not gain any weight, had extreme tiredness to the point I was in bed for two weeks (it was not just tiredness from pregnancy) drying my hair tired me out.
I was sick, then had bouts of diarreah.Severe heartburn and from the beginning of pregnancy i was slighty anemic.
I was put on tabs for heartburn and doc prescribed iron tabs - which i stopped taking as she thought these could be causing the sickness,
My daughter was born 4 weeks early which they think was triggered by placenta abrubption.
I was convinced that me being ill and my daughter being early was linked - but docs said that I just unfortunately had a bad time of it,
I have two other children and sailed through the pregnancys with them!!!
After the birth I was still getting abdominal pain and severe heartburn - so doc sent me for an endoscopy which showed I had a hiatus hernia, the consultant mentioned a wheat intolerance so took some biopsies - the results showed inflammation in my duodenum 'COMPATIABLE WITH CELIAC' which has confused my doc!! She did some blood tests which were EMA - Negative and IGA - Normal.
she has referred me back to the specialist to maybe have a genetic test and to discuss symptoms.
I do not feel half as bad as I did in pregnancy - still have heartburn and nausea. Have not been sick! Sometimes have dizziness and bouts of constipation/ loose stools _not exactly diarreah,
I am hoping someone can advise me on what they think!!!!
