Pregnant And Worried
Posted 01 July 2012 - 04:21 AM
This is my second pregnancy. I first started noticing symptoms after the birth of my first daughter while fighting candida. I had thrush for months and had to completely change my diet. It was during this time that I realized my real problem was gluten.
Now that I am pregnant again, it seems as though I can't tolerate even the slightest bit of gluten. I have been more careful than usual because I have become very sick during this pregnancy due to eating it. I am on the right track now and committed to the lifestyle but I am still very worried about the baby. Could I have done irreversible harm? Is the baby not getting the nutrients it should be? Wondering if I should see some sort of specialist. I am taking a prenantal but haven't been consistent. Any advice would be appreciated.

You might talk to your doctor about testing for B12, vitamin D, and iron as those are most commonly low. Obviously you need to be more consistent with the prenatal and if there are any deficiencies in the blood testing your obstetrician should be able to sort it out.
If you had obvious DH you are definitely celiac. I'm glad to hear you will be gluten-free now. It's much better for you.
