God's hands are the perfect place to place your fears. Congrats, momma! This is great news. So many of my friends are pregnant right now, in fact, my best friend just found out she's having twins. A lot of blessings on the way!

Congrats! I'm right about where you are. We had an ultrasound last Friday based on my climbing hcg levels (doc said at 5000 they should be able to see heartbeat, I was over 4000 2 days prior to ultrasound) but it was too early to see a heartbeat. We go this Friday to hopefully see a heartbeat. It's very exciting and like Looking for Answers said I know tons of women that are pregnant right now. Baby fever is in the air!

I'm so sorry Rachel, I really hope you aren't having a miscarriage, but i will be praying for you either way.

I had a miscarriage last year and it was really hard. Let me know how you are doing. ~Sometimes life is really hard to understand - it's hard to see what God has planned in it all. I still have a hard time with it at times.

I'm sure it must be hard for you tonight... having to wait for the test results. I'll definitely be praying for you tonight.

~Sarah

Aaah Rachel,

so sorry that you are having to go through this! Trusting for God's comfort and grace!

It is good you have such a loving hubby. Hang onto each other right now. You two will get through this, even though it seems impossible right now.

Rachel, people will try to be comforting, but will say things to you like "maybe it wasn't meant to be" and "you're young, you can have another"...they mean well, they are trying so hard to say what's right to make you feel better ....(it only made me feel worse). No one "gets it" unless they live it. Truth is, THIS baby is important to you and you will need to grieve the loss. Take time to heal, rest up and take good care of each other.

I am so so sorry for your loss. My sympathy to your hubby as well. It is hard, I know.

You have strong faith, I can tell. :) That's a very good thing.

I'm so sorry. I have had 4 miscarriages and each one was heart wrenching. I put it in Gods hands though and it helped me handle it. Hug that husband tight :)

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
