Hi! I'm sure many of you are new enough to not remember me. I've lurked a bit, but haven't really posted much for quite a while now. I've been busy visiting the boards at Babycenter.com! I'm now 36 weeks pregnant and give all the credit to going gluten free (and, thereby, to you all here as well for all of the help and support you gave me in doing so). If anyone is interested, I can share the whole testimonial (I have posted it on the pregnancy board here...), but there are definately too many things to think it's coincidence. Hubby and I have a little boy due August 19 who looks to be developing 100% perfectly, despite my age and a few other potential issues. I'm also maintaining iron and other levels even throughout the pregnancy better than I have at any other point in my life. I have had severe morning sickness and am still on prescription meds to keep it under control. We're totally looking forward to meeting our new little man in just a few short weeks!

Congratulations and welcome back!! I do remember you. I'm so happy for you and your husband. You are going to be so busy now you won't believe it! But feel free to post your testimonial because you had quite a road as I recall and it may be of help to someone who is struggling like you did. Hope all continues to go well for you and thanks for letting us know how you are doing!

Congratulations! Fertility issues is the main reason that keeps me going gluten-free with my silent celiac dd. So glad it all is working out. I hope you will try to breast feed. There is a lot if research that shows that may help protect the development of celiac and type 1 diabetes. I did not do it with my 1st and she got celiac. I did for a year with #2 and she is fine despite still having the genes. So just try! No regrets like me!

I'm very pro breastfeeding and think it was the best choice for both of my boys. I cherrish the times we had alone bonding. My youngest son would nurse and play with my hair. To this day when he is tired or not feeling well he plays with it. So sweet.

Well, I breast fed my celiac son for 16 months. In hindsite I think he had celiac as a baby but didn't show positive on blood work until he was almost 6 years old. He was first tested when he was 3 after I was diagnosed. All his symptoms as a baby and toddler make sense now. I was unknowingly gluten light while breastfeeding for the first 10 months. I avoided dairy, rice, oats, and tree nuts. He reacted to all of those. I ate a lot of fresh fruit/veggies and meat but was not gluten free. I also fed him barley cereal.

Oldest son was breastfed for 14 months. He is not celiac but is non celiac gluten intolerent.

    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.
