Congrats to you and your hubby! I found out last week I am expecting #2 and am due 8-9, so we can be gluten free pregnancy buddies! Just yesterday the urgent need to eat (or otherwise vomit) kicked in, so I have to make sure I have plenty of snacks with me wherever I go . Best of luck to you!
Don't know about a connection, but I was also told I had it this summer right before I decided to go gluten free. Mine was a pretty mild case, but my symptoms seem to have gotten better. The eye doc told me it was likely caused by wearing contacts too long, which I had worn probably an average of 3 weeks longer than I should have. I must have lost brain cells when I had my baby, because I can never remember to change my contacts or give the dogs their heartworm meds on time
