In Topic: Newly Diagnosed With Dh And Infertile....

11 July 2007 - 10:14 AM

welcome to my world. I also was diagnosed with low ovarian reserve. I was gluten free for one year before I got pregnant with the help of a fertility clinic. I did Follistim (an injectable drug) plus IUI.

I am currently trying to get pregnant again & we are on our 12th cycle. I am just not responding well at all.

let me know if you have any questions.

In Topic: To Take Progesterone Or Wing It?

02 July 2007 - 07:23 AM

I was diagnosed in June 2003 with celiac disease. I was on progesterone suppositories twice trying to conceive. When I became pregnant I was on them for 10 weeks. I am once again trying to get pregnant and on them every cycle.

I have had NO problems with constipation or reactions. It is worth the "messiness" for sure!

In Topic: Breastfeeding With Celiac

My daughter was born in March of this year. She was full term & just under 7lbs. I have been "glutened" once since her birth. That day & the next my production was WAY down. She ate constantly & never got enough. it was so very sad.

Pump, drink TONS of water, and eat right - that all helps temendously. So does Mother's Milk tea.

In Topic: gluten-free Meds Used In Labor & Delivery?

19 August 2006 - 07:06 AM

I had our first baby in March. I would suggest getting a hold of the dietican, Labor/Delivery Head Nurse & anesesolgy (I know I butchered that spelling!) ASAP. They need to know BEFORE you get there. I was told to bring my own Tylenol & Advill - they use generics that are NOT gluten free & may not have gluten free on hand. They will not let you use your own unless it is previously established with the L&D head prior to arriving at the hospital.

the actual epidural & pitocin & nubain are all gluten free. the tape is not - so I just had to deal with a minor rash.

Good luck!
