Prego

So I've been prego before, only for a few weeks. This time I'm a month in.

But...I took one of my L-glutamine pills to help heal my intestines and had a bad reaction. I had avoided taking them for a few days but tried one today :P

and this is what happened:

hot/cold flashes

nausea

dizziness

sweats

fainted

migraine

freezing cold hand (blue/white)

SO...conclusion, when it says "Consult a doctor if pregnant.." I'M GOING TO DO IT!

Sometimes (shakes head) I just slap myself.

I will be getting a doctor soon.

Yeah when taking medicine ask the doctor. Also if you don't have one yet you can ask the pharmacy they can help to.

Congrats! Yes, a doctor makes sense. I'd skip taking anything but prescribed prenatal vitamins and any medications you and your doctor decide are absolutely essential if I were pregnant.

So I had posted a reply about L-glutamine. But looks like that was erased by the website wardens. But L glutamine is a supplement perscribed by my doctor. It's not to be taken while pregnant, I had a bad reaction. I'll try and "keep it simple" for the wardens.

I hope you're feeling better now.

Well the pregnancy test said I was still prego, but I've had three gluten episodes in a row since my fiancee brought oatmeal into the house. My belly has been way swollen and painful. I'd like to feel better. But first someone is getting a talking to. lol

Oatmeal that isn't steal rolled is never allowed in the house. Too much dust. So unfortunatly I don't think the babay will survive, again. :S

You said in your first post you would be getting a doctor soon. I hope you have seen one by now. If you don't have insurance get to a clinic and if you are low income check and see if you are eligible for Medicaid if you are in the US.

I'm so sorry to hear that. :( I hope you don't lose your baby because of gluten. This disease is so miserable sometimes... Sounds like you need a complete ban on oatmeal, not just steel-cut! Some people with celiac (maybe 10%?) have a full gluten reaction to oats.

Yeah! That's what happens. On the bright side, when they are 12 and you are " the meanest mom evah!" you can remind them of what they did to your cute figure. :)

Seriously, a lot of times it will go back into place. Glad the baby is doing good.

Yikes it's almost time! Now nine months prego and the day is literally around the corner!

I do have some concerns, I've had a couple cross contaminations with gluten (darn potholder was sitting on top of the steamed vegetables) you can probably guess that wasn't fun last night.

My question is, since celiac disease does indeed throw off my hormone balance each epsidoe that I have (usually delaying my period), would it throw off the hormons necessary to trigger the beginning of labor?

I do believe baby is getting a steady supply of nutrition from my stores of fat and shouldn't be delayed in his growth if I have a gluten episode, but...will he be able to come out on time if my hormones aren't signaling the time for labor is due?

More of a test study question than something people could easily answer I'm sure, but that's kinda on my mind.

I think it is unlikely that these particular hormones will be thrown off. It's a combination of a number hormones, including ones that baby and placenta produces.

That's good to hear, I'm overdue though but it is my first one. I'm told that it's pretty typical for the first. Although I am trying to naturally induce with several different methods that the midwife has suggested and I've found on a pregnancy website that's pretty legite. I think I just need to practice patients with this one and let the good Lord pop him out when he's ready lol It's so hard to to experiement or theorize what could be going on, I'm kinda like that with everything it seems. Just a bit of a scientist in the blood. ;)

I am thinking that the babe has arrived, d/t no postings in a while...everyone needs to remember that 9 months and 10 days is a MEAN. If your mom ran late, so might you, and the reverse.

    • Weird Reaction
      I think, if all this is caused by glutening, it could be that it takes a while to work its way out of your system. I should explain about what I said about organic broccoli.   I don't have a problem with organic food,  in fact, I buy organic milk and carrots all the time, but I don't want to try organic broccoli in case it is the broccoli that is the problem, not the insecticide.    I meant to ask, are you a coeliac or is it non-coeliac gluten intolerance that you have?   I wonder what sort of support you get in Australia for these conditions once diagnosed?   Here in the UK I think the understanding that if new gastro symptoms have lasted for more than six weeks it needs to be investigated.   I have found this very helpful advice because I do get odd twinges of pain and sometimes changes but they rarely last more than three weeks.   If they do persist I mention it to my gastroenteroligist and he follows it up.  I recently had a sigmoidoscopy for left sided pain and they found nothing.  Turns out it was to do with lactose intolerance, but I always imagine the worse!  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??

      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
