Miscarriage Question

Recommended Posts

I found out in 2011 that I couldn't have gluten anymore. Now I admit for a while I wasn't perfect following it; but I have been now for a while. I got married this past october and haven't touched gluten in a long time. But at my wedding I did get contaminated accidentally with the gluten free cake getting mixed up with the regular...long story there.anyways I knew with a couple minutes after eating it I got contaminated.i got medicine in me so I wouldn't get sick but I know there was still damage done of course. I got pregnant back in November and in January I found out the baby died a little over 10 weeks. I'm just wondering is it possible that the cause of the miscarriage might be because I got contaminated then and I might not of been healed yet? I had to go to the er in december cause of bleeding.i guess the baby wasn't healthy from the beginning really.i didn't know that till after it happened tho.im just wondering if maybe the gluten might of caused it?

I doubt that little bit of gluten did that.

"Will exposure to gluten during pregnancy cause any problems with the baby?

Stay gluten-free during pregnancy and rest assured nothing gluten-related will happen to the baby. Inadvertent, minimal exposures (if not repeated) are meaningless for the health of pregnancy.

In women with undiagnosed celiac disease, however, gluten has been related to an increased risk of infertility and miscarriages."

I am sorry for your loss!

I think too, that one glutening would not affect a pregnancy. I would strongly advise remaining gluten free. It is the only "cure" for celiac disease. Get yourself back to being really healthy! Take care.

Sorry for your loss.   :(

 

I agree that the small glutening didn't cause this.  It was probably not meant to be .... Doesn't make it any easier though.
