Glutened While Pregnant
0

6 posts in this topic

Hello. I'm 6 months pregnant and I accidentally ate a stupid flour taco. Actually I only ate half of it before realizing what I was doing. Baby Brain strikes again. But now in addition to the massive headache I've had for 2 days, that Tylenol barely even helps, I'm having stomach pains.

My OB doctor isn't very familiar with Celiac, so he is worthless with this problem. Otherwise, I have a very normal and healthy pregnancy/baby so far. (this is also the first time I've accidentally eaten gluten while being pregnant)

My stomach hurts... more like my stomach muscles. But because everything is moved around because of the baby, it's tough to tell if what I'm experiencing is "normal" accidental glutened pains or if it's something else. :(

Has anyone else been glutened while pregnant and had pains that went away?

No. But you need to call your doctor back and yell him/her what's going on, and discuss whatever tests they can do -ultrasound, monitoring, etc. to ensure you aren't contracting in some way if your stomach muscles continue to feel odd. I always found my obgyn to be overly cautious if I felt odd on any way - and he wanted me to over-report, not tough it out.

Your muscles and ligaments are very stretchy and sensitive

during pregnancy, so yes, it is possible you feel a bit battered.

I would get a quick stomach muscle spasm if I bent over a certain way. Doctor simply told me not to do it again like that - problem solved. As I got bigger I couldn't have done it if my life depended on it :).

I also tweaked a ligament simply by turning sideways quickly -the soreness went away after a few weeks but I learned my lesson.

Hopefully you feel better soon!

I did not get glutened while pregnant, but I agree with pricklypear - you should go get checked out thoroughly if you are the least bit concerned about the pain you are feeling. They can put a sensor on your belly to check for contractions.

I got glutened when I was 26 weeks pregnant. I ended up severely ill and in hospy and even though they new it was wasn't to do with the baby they still monitored the bubs for awhile to make sure everything was ok .

I'd call the Doctor just to be sure.

I just wanted to leave an update.

I did go to the doctor today. I was monitored for 5 hours and had a ton of tests run. Everything with the baby is fine. I was having mild contractions but I'm not in pre-term labor.

The doctor said I either have a virus, or my pains are because of the gluten I ingested. :( Nothing for me to do except give it a few more days of rest to see if the pains go away.

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
