Anyone Else Exhausted All The Time?
0

6 posts in this topic

Hey all! It was nice to read through the forums and find so many of you who are pregnant. I'm due the month after all you October ladies.

I'm a month into my second trimester now and I've read (and heard) that this is when we're supposed to get our energy back. I am glad the nausea is gone (thanks mostly to acupuncture), but I would like to get out and take walks again. I used to walk 3-4 miles 4 times a week and sleep 8-9 hours a night. Now since being preggo, I sleep 10 hours a nightor so, and nap twice a day, for an hour or so each nap. When I do get mild excercize it just wipes me out.

I've been gluten-free for almost a year now and wondered if this had anything to do with Celiac Disease.

There's really not a lot of info out there on pregnant Celiacs who are tired, so I'm counting on your experiences and advice. Thanks! (and good night!) ;)

Hey there, and welcome! I hear ya about being tired. I would love to just sleep the next few months away if I could. I have two other kids aged 3 1/3 and 1 1/2 so my naps are few and far between. I still feel pretty tired despite being gluten-free and taking vitamin B-12 shots. I wish I could tell what symptoms are pregnancy and which are Celiacs! I wish I could offer you more advice, but I thought i'd just co-sympathize with you. :)

I think more than anything that is just from being pregnant. :rolleyes: I get tired some days and others not so much. Hang in there it will pass.

Thanks you two! I think you're right - the exhaustion is due to pregnancy and not to being celiac.

I honestly don't know how mom's do it! I can't imagine going through this with a child (or more) to look after.

P.S. -16 weeks today! Can't wait to start showing!

I'll tell ya how women do it again, even with small children. It's a phenomenon called" pregnancy amnesia", once they deliver they forget all the bad stuff and want to do it all over again! Congratulations, and pace yourself!~ ;)

I'm almost out of my second trimester and still waiting for the energy to come back. I've been gluten-free for nearly 5 years though so I'm pretty certain it's just the baby. The worst part is that I sleep so lousy now - constantly moving due to discomfort. I have a hard time staying asleep which makes it really tough to get enough - especially while working full time. That, combined with some other symptoms has prompted my dr. to put me on early disability. Everything with the baby is fine - they just want me to be fine as well....

The most important thing is to listen to what your body and your baby need. That will be the best guide to remaining healthy.

Good luck!

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
