I would talk to your doctor, tell him/her that you want to start trying soon, and ask for regular blood panels so you can see where your levels are.
gluten-free since July 8, 2009!

I would advise eating whole foods and taking a high level probiotic! My first pregnancy did not receive the right nutrition, and was subsequently a very high risk pregnancy. It was very scary and my lil girl has complications from it to this day. I think a year on a good probiotic and Gluten-Free sounds like a perfect amount of time!
I agree. Folic acid is very important the first few weeks after conception. I routinely check my blood levels with the routine labs recommended for women to check for any red flags.

I think, in general, your body will take what it needs for the baby. It might mean you lose your teeth, feel like you have to sleep 20 hours a day, go bald...but the body looks after the baby. It's you that will suffer and you already are suffering. So I'd talk to your doctor about this. On the one hand you have to think about needing more time to get pregnant but you also have to think about the impact to you and also the risk of losing a pregnancy.

I don't recommend not treating celiac and having 5 babies. I think the toll on my body is pretty steep. However, I guess it would be anyway with 30 years of celiac. I have these nice young people to show for it! They are worth it.
