In Topic: Pregnant And Nauseated - Help!

7 weeks as well.  I had two miscarriages this year.  After being gluten free conception as easy and now I feel TERRIBLY sick, and dizzy, and out of breath.  And I am thrilled.  Just remember that the nausea is a sign that your hormones are going crazy to facilitate a life growing inside you. And this makes you feel icky.  I have found that citrus had been helping me.  and Juicing.  Good luck.  and congratulations.

I'm seven week and feel icky REALLY icky.  I don't stop feeling sick until 1pm.  One thing that is helping is using my juicer every day and juicing carrots, oranges or apples, and some other veggie like cucumber or beet.

I'm at a total loss right now and feel completely defeated.

I got through 2 pregnancies as an undiagnosed celiac. My first son was born 7 weeks early for no known reason and I was on constant and complete bed rest for the majority of my pregnancy with my second son. He was not premature, thankfully, but a little underweight.

I am now offically diagnosed with celiac disease and 10 weeks pregnant... totally an accidental pregnancy as I really didn't have plans to have any more kids... and I'm trying SO hard to stay gluten free but it's as if my motivation has completely left me. I have awful morning sickness and can barely keep anything down... except bread. And muffins. Pancakes. Pie.

It is all. I. Want.

And I feel like a total failure as a mother because I know I'm making myself sick and probably hurting my baby as well. I've tried gluten free substitutes for these things, but they make me violently ill. I just don't know what to do. My skin looks terrible... I have bleeding sores on my face and scalp. I'm hugely bloated... I swear, I look 5 months pregnant. And it just feels like a repeat of my last 2 pregnancies when I really hoped this one would be different. I just KNEW that if I could do it completely gluten free, it would be so much better... but I suck at this.

How do people fight the cravings and aversions? I'm completely miserable!

I am right there with ya!  It's the texture!  I have been craving a grilled cheese with avocado and mint chutney.  I almost threw up after a few bites.  It was like the gluten-free bread grew in my mouth.  Not sure how to explain it.  I have normally liked the bread.  If you do find gluten-free things you like good luck.  Honestly I have found 1) oranges are helping me not want sweet breads.  And 2) Juicing every morning is helping with cravings as well.

"Gluten sensitivity is NOT an allergy, although some people (including some with celiac disease) have an allergy to wheat."


Thanks for the clarification.  I think I continually use misuse the term "allergy"  That also explains why all the Allergists tell me I am not allergic to anything even thought I seem to always have allergies.
