Gf Pre Natals
0

5 posts in this topic

Hi there. I've been having a "whopper" of a prenatal problem. First I was on a regular nature made before I found out I was preg. Then I went on the GNC gluten-free prenatals. Made me sick to my stomach all day. Now I have got a perscription from my GI dr. called penatal plus by teva. Has anyone heard of this one? I'm hoping it works. I think I am feeling better, but I'm at the point where I just want to go back on my regular nature mades. I'm 9 weeks along, and this new rx is making me constipated. It's always something.

I was happy the other day though. I local super market has an AWESOME gluten-free section and I got a lot of great new foods!!! All ready made mac n cheese, blueberry muffins, brownies, soups. I can't wait to eat them all!!! But for some reason, I'm really missing oatmeal!!! I've heard that that is questionable. Has anyone tried it?

Thanks a bunch!

congrats to you! I am 10 weeks along and have been super sick also. I am taking Celgan (I think) I am at work right now but I will check and see when I get home. It doesn't make me sick at all. I know that because I took it for along time before getting pg ;) I will look it up and let you know. My GI dr. told me not to eat out at all the whole 9 months and he told me to get my blood tested every month to check my calcium and iron, and other vitimin levels. Do you think he is going overboard or is that a good thing? I can't tell.

good luck I hope you feel better soon.

Hi,

I have an almost 5 yr. old, almost 3 yr. old, and a 5 mo. old baby. My 5 mo. old was the first baby I had while knowing I was a celiac and while I was on a gluten-free diet. I took Stuart Natal prescription vitamins - they are gluten-free. While I did not have any morning sickness throughout any of my pregnancies, I always got extremely nauseous if I took my prenatals without food. Even if I took my vitamin 2 min. before the food I would get sick. I had to take it WHILE I was eating. Also, I've heard some people take it at night with a little bit of food, right before bed. That way they'll sleep through it if it makes them sick. I still take Nature Made prenatals since I am breastfeeding and I still get sick if I don't take them with food.

Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy.

Rachel

Prenatal vitamins (any vitamins really) can make you sick and/or nauseus during pregnancy. Try another brand, try it with food like s.o. else suggested, or maybe just stop them for a few weeks and try again. They may not bother you once you're out of the first trimester.

Best wishes,

Merika

I know I'm coming in to this discussion late but I wanted to recommend Good Earth vitamins as well as remind women that you don't always have to take a prenatal - regular vitamins plus folic acid are often enough. I actually process Iron incredibly well and have landed in the ER 3 times with Iron overdoses while taking traditional prenatals. I am 18 weeks pregnant now and have been taken Good Earth iron-free vitamins plus folic acid every day with no side effects. I take them in the evening with supper and have had no nausea. Good luck!

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
