Trouble Gaining Weight

3 posts in this topic

Anyone else having trouble gaining weight? I am 19 wks now and I think I have only gained a pound. I don't even look pg yet. My doctor seems a little concerned but I had an ultrasound last week and the baby looks good she is growing and seems to be right on track. And it looks like a little girl!

But, I know I am not eating any gluten and that I was sick until week 17 so that is why I haven't gained much weight. I was just wondering if anyone else seems to have a problem gaining weight and getting a belly?

Hi KayJay! Is this your first baby? I am 11 weeks with my third and during my first pregnancy it took me forever to gain weight. I still have not gained anything yet with this little one. I was still wearing my normal clothes at 4 months. Here's the good news, I ended up having a healthy 7lb 8oz girl. I gained 20 lbs in the end, and I didn't put on much weight until I was around 7 months. My doctors were concerned with both my prenancies because I measured really small right until the end, but both my girls were over 7lbs. My Ob said he has no idea why, but tall thin women seem to hide pregnancies well. If baby looks fine on the ultrasound then you are doing great!!

Keep us posted!

Thanks I feel like I gained more weight this week than during this whole time. I am almost 6 months now and still in my normal clothes but I do see my belly growing now. I am only 5' but I am thin. One lady told me I was carrying the baby in my butt :lol: Not that I have grown there either but she said that if you don't have a belly that is where you care the baby!

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
