I am 7 weeks pregnant and got diagnosed with Celiac the same day I found out I was pregnant (3 weeks ago). I am really nauseated, and being new to the world of Celiac, I don't know what to eat that might help alleviate the nausea. Any advice of foods, brands, etc. would be much appreciated!

Have you read this thread?

Wow, I can't imagine hearing two life altering dx's the same day. Wow.

Well, if you look on the main page of Celiac.com you'll find lots of links on the left banner - just start reading. There's a list of safe/unsafe food ingredients that will help you at the grocery store.

You'll probably develop your tastes around what is available in your area. I suggest raiding the local grocery stores first, then go to a Whole Foods or natural foods store.

Shopping can be a bit challenging at first til you learn the what's/wheres.

Read through the forums, ask lots of questions.

And CONGRATULATIONS and welcome!

When I was pregnant, small, frequent snacks helped keep things at bay as did "dry foods" - many of which I couldn't have now. LOL Maybe dry gluten-free cereal if you can have that? Baked potatoes and scrambled eggs helped me too. Ginger tea is nice too - you can drink it warm or iced. I lost a lot of weight the first trimester because of morning sickness so I snacked whenever I could.

Congrats!!

All three pregnancies I struggled with extreme nausea and looked and felt like I had the flu my entire pregnancy. My doctor had to put me on Zofran so that I could keep down food and not feel sick all day. None of the other suddel remedies worked for me. Hopefully it will pass for you.

Make sure you pack snacks from home every time you go somewhere. Nibbling on food definitely has helped me combat the sick feeling. Grapes have been good for me or rice crackers with peanut butter. Being pregnant and gluten-free, you (unfortunately) need to find some processed gluten-free items at the store like crackers and bread. I have been eating udi bread because I have been constantly craving sandwiches. I also eat Lara bars and keep them in my purse. You can make them at home cheaper than you can buy them. Just google lara bar recipe at home. I make sure to make things like gluten-free muffins and oatmeal cookies and pack those too and have them to grab at home when I am starving. Let's fave it- pregnancy makes you crave carbs. Good luck and hang in there. It will get easier with time. I too, realized with this pregnancy that I cannot tolerate ANY gluten and I suspect celiac. I had been almost gluten-free before I became pregnant but cheated once a week. Now I can't cheat at all without serious consequences.

I am 10 weeks pregnant and there are a few things I always have handy. First is ginger ale. This is a life saver and has helped me soooo much! Second I have snacks on hand all the time. It seems that grazing or munching on small bunches of food helps than trying to eat meals. I usually have rice cakes or trail mix on hand. I like the trail mix because it gives me some protein so I usually feel a little fuller without eating much.

I was nauseated most of my pregnancy most of my waking time - and I am wondering, if it had anything to do with glutein. The thing I could handle was fruit. I love cucumbers, and coudn't even look at them, when I was pregnant. The thing that helped a bit was sucking on the lemon, but it can't be good for the teeth, so rinse them often...

Others have given all excellent advice -- one other thing that helped my extreme nausea during my pregnancies was wrist bands you can purchase at the pharmacy -- they are called "seabands" and are made to prevent sea sickness by putting pressure on a point inside your wrist. I wore them 24 hours a day once my husband brought them home - didn't prevent all nausea but I was able to keep some food down.

Small dabs of protein helped my nausea at bay. Also, the delivery of a healthy baby cured me of it. This too must pass I used to tell myself. I didn't enjoy the nausea, but I was sure glad to have the baby. Five of my extremely nauseating pregancies ended with the birth of a healthy baby. It is uncomfortable, you are sick, but all can be well with the baby inspite of it. I use to worry the baby would be damaged by my inability to eat, but they can be fine and healthy and I don't understand it!

Get well soon, and I would like to send you some flowers.**************** There.* Get well soon and have a great brithday party one day.

multiple meals a day instead of 3 big ones helped me a lot too, like krystyn.

7 weeks as well.  I had two miscarriages this year.  After being gluten free conception as easy and now I feel TERRIBLY sick, and dizzy, and out of breath.  And I am thrilled.  Just remember that the nausea is a sign that your hormones are going crazy to facilitate a life growing inside you. And this makes you feel icky.  I have found that citrus had been helping me.  and Juicing.  Good luck.  and congratulations.

I guess the original post here, the baby has come by now.  My Functional Medicine, health care nurse told me that nausea and vomiting in pregnancy is due to low magnesium.  Any of us have that?
