Feeling Your Baby Move?

23 October 2009 - 03:43 PM

hi all,

so I'm almost 13 weeks pregnant with my first baby, and I really think that I felt the baby move today. It was really light, but most of the baby websites say you wont normally feel it until about 16 weeks.

My question - do you think that having Celiac's (been gluten-free for 6.5 years), and going through all the stomach issues you can tell the difference earlier in pregnancy between baby movements and other things going on in your tummy area? What just happened is not a normal feeling (that I've felt in my lower left tummy anyways), and I'm just wondering if it's because with Celiac's I'm so conscious of what is happening in there, that I know what's 'normal' and what's not?

Just curious - am I even making sense?

Thanks all!

gluten-free Ingredients In German?

09 June 2009 - 03:06 PM

Hi all,

I'm traveling to Germany for my sister's wedding in September, and we're having difficulty with the catering company. They want a complete list of the ingredients that I can not have (fortunately gluten-free only), and said the restaurant cards didn't have 'enough information' as to the ingredients they should avoid.

I've asked for just a 'plain' meal, with no sauce, coating, spices or either grilled fish or chicken with steamed veggies and rice, but they won't cook it in the kitchen without a list of ingredients.

Can anyone here help? I'm looking for a list of commonly used ingredients that are either already in German or that we can translate - are there any common spices / ingredients that contains gluten but not clearly labeled?

We contacted the German Coeliac Society and they told my sister she has to pay 50 Euros to become a member to get the list.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much!
