Can anyone help????
Even if the chances of another baby having celiac WERE 99% (which I seriously doubt) I wouldnt let that stop me from having another blessing!
Honestly, avoiding gluten is not the end of the world! It gets easier too and I dont know how long you've been dealing with this with your child, but I PROMISE that it will eventually become second nature and not nearly so overwhelming.
We discovered after a year of sickness that our then 13 yr old son couldnt handle gluten or soy. Now, 3 yrs later he is doing really well!
Now, it's our daughter's turn. She is 12 this year, and has been sick over 3 months. Of course, my first thought was "GLUTEN!" since she has not been eating gluten-free like our son.
We took her off gluten for a month and she remained sick, with a FEVER every single day. It didnt seem to make a difference, so we gave up on the gluten idea and started going to doctors. Four doctors couldnt figure out why she has a fever every day... Finally, in desperation we took her off gluten again, and all the stomach issues cleared up but she is still running a fever DAILY since the middle of March!
I am hopeful that it is just taking her longer to recover from the gluten and that the fever will eventually go away.
The good news is that it didnt freak me out to think she'd have to be gluten free too as I had already gone through all that with our son.
YOU CAN DO IT! Even if your next child is gluten intolerant/celiac, it's not the end of the world.
