I have not had hormone changes since going gluten-free (that I have noticed) but it definitely takes your body longer than 2 months to heal itself on this diet.  I was on it a year before I stopped completely having symptoms and gastrointestinal problems.  Give your body time to repair and prepare for a pregnancy.  I've been gluten-free now for about 3 years and was worried about infertility.  But I am pregnant now - and it only took us 3 months once we started trying.  I credit being careful about the diet and allowing my body to do what it needed to do.

Thanks so much for all these tips!  I am traveling to Frankfurt and Heidelberg next week and will definitely need access to safe gluten-free snacks since I'm pregnant and can't take the chance of contamination. 

In Topic: How Do Pregnant Women Stick To This Diet?

I can completely sympathize with your cravings because even though I'm newly pregnant I've been trying to stick to a very strict gluten-free diet for months now to prepare my body for pregnancy. 


I would definitely recommend trying Pamela's gluten-free baking mix - it's great for pancakes and waffles and I think your kids might like it, too. My spouse loves it and the taste and consistency are just like regular pancakes.  I'd also recommend getting some of the frozen gluten-free English muffins (again, good consistency, not powdery).  You can also make gluten-free cornbread with regular (not self rising) cornmeal by adding some baking powder and salt along with oil or buttermilk.  When I need a sweet snack or quick breakfast I just spread some jam on the leftover cornbread.


Best of luck with the cravings!  I am not looking forward to that part of pregnancy because I have very little willpower.

In Topic: Very Nervous About Trying To Get Pregnant

I found out today that I am pregnant, though only very early, about 2 weeks.  I'll definitely be sticking to a fully gluten-free diet and will be alerting my doctor to some of the complications that can arise from a pregnancy in someone with celiac. But at the very least, I know I can get pregnant and that's a good sign for someone who's had this condition as long as I have.

The Prenatal + DHA vitamins from Nature Made are actually labelled gluten-free on the front.
