I miss granola so badly! I was wondering if anyone had a recipe that was similar or anything that resembles granola? Thank you!

Fruits Vs. Rice Cereal

04 September 2008 - 12:42 PM

my son is 5 months old and I want to start soilds next month however I am in conflict what i should start him on. I want him to stay gluten-free until he's two or so and I'm making my own baby food. However I don't know if I should start him on rice or fruits first. I would like your thoughts, which is easier to digest? Besides the fact that fruits are sweeter than anything else is that the only reason that they say start rice first? Thanks

Celiac And Not Gaining Weight During Pregnancy

17 November 2007 - 05:21 AM

I am just wondering if anyone else is having trouble gaining weight while pregnant. I am 20 weeks and have gained 4lbs. I didn't lose any weight in the beginning and I feel like I'm eating a lot of food. I'm not holding back in my eating thats for sure. My doctor isn't worried but I was just wondering if anyone else is gaining slowly?


Link Between Celiac And Down Syndrome?

17 November 2007 - 05:02 AM

About three weeks ago I had the AFP test (or the triple screen test), which tests for spina bifida, trisomy 18 (Edwards Syndrome) and trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome). I only had this test done because if something is wrong I wanted to be at the same hospital as my baby and the local where I live can't handle special cases. All that to say the test came back abnormal. My odds were 1 in 124. I'm only 22 and this is my first pregnancy (we are having a boy).

I had a ultra sound and the only things they found were his arms (17 weeks) and legs (18 weeks) were behind his head growth (19 weeks). They also found a pocket of fluid in his brain. They said all these things were indicators of down syndrome, however if my blood test had come back normal
they wouldn't have thought twice about the things they found. Also, I am 5' 5" and my husband is 5' 4" and his side of the family is all under 5' 8". The doctors said it could also mean that our baby is just going to be short, but they could say for sure. We aren't getting anymore tests done.

I write all this to see if anyone else has gone through this and if anyone knows if down syndrome is all related to celiac disease?

Thank you all:-)
