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!

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

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.
