Can Gluten Cause Problems With Celiac Pregnancy

Hi Everyone, I'm new here. I'm an atypical celiac who was diagnosed almost a year ago (after 5+years of thinking I was just allergic to wheat). My 2 yo son and brother have recently been diagnosed as well.

A restaurant mixed up my order a few days ago and I was sick for 24 hours, though not with diarrhea. I think it's ok, since I was a gluten-eating celiac my first pregnancy and everything turned out ok (other than his baby tooth enamel which is a bit weak), I just have a tendency to worry during pregnancy...

As an atypical celiac, diarrhea and weightloss are not major problems for me, I tend to gain weight and get constipated more often. My other symptoms are the most potent, (depression, anxiety, joint pain, thyroid trouble) perhaps because I don't get the gluten right out of my system.

Odd thing about this pregnancy, is my body is less forgiving of me, my celiac symptoms are much more pronounced, I'm much more sensitive, and my food allergies are enough to drive me nuts. My biggest goal is to avoid triggering my immune system as much as possible, but it seems to be on high alert. Just the opposite of my first pregnancy.

I think you and your baby should be fine. My G.I. dr. told me that I should not eat out until the baby comes. And that I should get my blood levels checked monthly for deficinces. My insurance would not pay for that so I never did the baby seems to be growing fine anyways. But I do try not to eat out. Of course it is hard and I do eat out at places that have a gluten-free menu. Congratulations by the way! I hope you start to feel better.

KayJay...is that your greyhound I have the exact same one. My Culver is male..and 10 years old in July. Anyway I am about to try to conceive my 2nd ...my daughter is going to be 5 and I got diagnosed last year with Celiac. I am looking for Folic acid and Calcium supplements...I have mild osteopenia any suggestions. As for symptoms I find that Milk products around my menstrual cycle especially will cause similar symptoms to gluten oopses. Good luck.

Virginia :)
