Hi Ladies!

I was just wondering if any of you have had a similar experience.....My baby is normally a pretty active little guy. But any time I have any kind of stomach distress, he quiets down and barely moves....sometimes for several days. I think my family thinks I'm just being an alarmist, but it really does worry me every time it happens. I have had 2 gluten accidents (both times he quieted down for several days) Now I'm having a lot of trouble with C, despite a high fiber diet, drinking lots of water, etc., etc. My Dr. prescribed a geletin suppository (I know...ewwww :blink: ) I did it last night, and as soon as I did, he once again quieted down. I really think he is probably ok in there.....the last 2 times this happened I got really worried and went in for a fetal heart check and he was fine. Plus he has moved a little, just not very much. I was just wondering if any of you have experienced anything like this....and if so was everything ok?

Hi Christine,

I'm pregnant right now too, and she is usually very active also. I have noticed though that her activity is very related to when and what I eat. I think because of the nutrients being transfered. It could be that when you have a gluten accident, that those nutrients are not being transfered because your body is having a hard time, or he could just be lulled to sleep by all the gurgling going on in your belly. :P

I had my last daughter before I knew I was celiac, so I was eating gluten junk all the time. She was a little small but otherwise very healthy. I don't think there would be any serious repercussions for your baby from a few accidents.

During my first pregnancy, the baby barely moved. MAYBE once or twice a day. It was so nerve-wracking. (Now, at 3-1/2, she's like a little whirling dervish. :lol: )

I ended up renting a fetal doppler from a company. It's just the little gadget they use to listen to the baby's heartbeat. It was great because if I was ever worried, I could just find the heartbeat and know everything was okay. It was $20 a month, and it was well worth it to me not to have to worry. It also cut down on my stress level.



PS - Hey Patricia, I got your PM, but the reply feature isn't working, so I'll PM you when that starts working again. :)
