I'm so excited to share with you all that my husband and I are finally pregnant! I give all credit (well, most, we did do a *few* things to contribute ;) lol) to kicking the gluten out of my life. My husband and I decided back in May (before we got married in June) for me to discontinue my Depo, knowing that it could take a while to get out of my system and that we were on a somewhat more limited time frame than most couples are (I'm 35 and he's 40.). I had my annual in August and my obgyn was concerned about me not having started having periods after the three months off the Depo. She wanted to give me a shot immediately to trigger periods (not ovulation, just periods), but I wasn't yet ready to go that direction. In mid-Sept, I went gluten free right after my colonoscopy/EGD (which was done incorrectly so I still have no 'official' diagnosis, but I feel completely confident in saying that I have Celiac w/ DH). By mid-Oct my period started. My obgyn suggested I get an OPK just to see whether or not I was ovulating, telling me not to worry too much about it as I probably would not ovulate for a few months (at least), but that this would be good information to know. Well, low and behold, I was ovulating from the get-go. That first one was a miss, but I ovulated for the second time right after Thanksgiving. Thinking it was probably still a few days to early, but just feeling a very strong urge to do so, I did a home test yesterday afternoon. Again, I was thinking that it was too early and that since I was not using my first morning urine, I would likely get a negative even if I were, in fact, preggo. Immagine my surprise when I got not only a positive, but a VERY STRONG positive! I had to do a double take and then check the thing to make sure that I was reading it correctly! Words cannot even begin to describe how thrilled we are, though it still seems a bit surreal to me right now.

Congrats to you and your hubby! I found out last week I am expecting #2 and am due 8-9, so we can be gluten free pregnancy buddies! Just yesterday the urgent need to eat (or otherwise vomit) kicked in, so I have to make sure I have plenty of snacks with me wherever I go :). Best of luck to you!

Thank you everyone! The reality is just beginning to sink in. The positive home test is still sitting on the bathroom counter. I know I should throw it away, but it helps me to look at it to know that I'm not just dreaming. I did get a positive confirmation from the blood test at my doctor's office yesterday. They want me to have my first maternity appointment within the next two weeks at the latest, given that I'm officially of "Advanced Maternal Age"...gotta LOVE that phrase...lol I'm only 35, not 90!

I've been having the strangest dreams and have been waking up earlier than normal. I've had weird headaches. I've been *really* indecisive about what I want to eat. Looking forward to the next nine months!

The weird, vivid dreams are normal, as well as any other weird thing that you think, crave, etc. Pregnancy can be quite funny if you keep a certain perspective.

Don't force yourself to eat anything that turns your stomach, just keep up with your supplaments and remember everything will pass and soon enough you'll be meeting him/her and the adventures will begin.
