3 Healthy Baby Boys 5, 3 And 1

:rolleyes:

Everyone is different. I have had C.D. for over 10 years now and I am pretty healthy considering I have not stayed on my diet faithfully. I had three pretty normal pregnancies in which I was blessed with my little baseball team of boys.

One problem I had was Early Labor with all three. About 7 months into the pregnancies, I would go into labor. If there are any of you that would like details, I would be happy to share.

I have not tested my kids yet because they have been growing well and look wonderful.

Had no problems at all conceiving or being pregnant and I cheated on my diet alot during cravings. :unsure:

Maybe you should test the boys. My brother went through most of his life symptom-free but had Celiacs the whole time. It would have benifited him (and myself) to be diagnosed at an early age rather than the latter.

You had all three of them at 7 months? Maybe it's something unique about you.

;) you are so very blessed missingmybread---my sister and i both had difficult pregnancies--she lost her first baby at fullterm, her 2nd was born 6 wks early, the 3rd was 4 wks early-----my 1st was a normal pregnancy, but the other 4 were all difficult--i was sick most nights--the last 2 were the worst--and my last baby, my daughter, was born with a dislocated hip, or so we thought--during surgery they found that she had no hip socket on that one side and now, i realize it was probably because of the celiacs that she had that birth defect--i didnt gain anything when pregnant with her, i lost 40#----i know it wasnt my fault, but i still hurt for her cause she has had a life of pain with that hip and she always will---you are so blessed to have healthy babies--always remember that---deb

    • Push for the endoscopy.  My GI said at the initial consult that he didn't think I had celiac but wanted to do the scope to "rule it out"  When he saw me immediately after the endo, while I was still in recovery, he saw enough damage to change his position and sure enough the biopsy came back positive.
    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
