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.
