Does anyone have experience to share about corn intolerance and pregnancy?


It's my first pregnancy and it's been a struggle. I am VERY sensitive to anything corn-derived and have to get my medication compounded. Being pregnant has been complicated: finding corn-free prenatals (couldn't find any, I'm taking separate vitamins), dealing with cravings on a restrictive diet, pregnancy symptoms vs "glutenings", corn in glucose tolerance test, corn in IV... 


I am the only one having to deal with this? Doctors don't seem to understand and it's frustrating.

I am not pregnant but I stay away from corn- I test allergic and it upsets my stomach. I also have celiacs so I'm used to avoiding things.

You have to figure out what you CAN eat and then keep snacks with you so you don't get caught hungry and have to scramble. I make most of my own foods. I go to grocery stores like wegmans and whole foods and take my time reading through ingredients and I find what works for me and stick to it. When eating out I stick to grilled lean proteins and veggies.

I am sure corn free prenatals exist but it will take some searching through the ingredients on your part bc it isn't a common allergy. Talk to your doctor about the glucose tolerance test- there may be an alternate test you can take.
