ONE TRY??? Were you testing ovulation and stuff? Or did it 'just happen'?

CONGRATS

I hope I am as lucky as you!

Mine were all many years ago when I had mild to moderate Celiac Disease symptoms that I didn't know were Celiac Disease yet.

I actually think my honey's swimmers were more of a problem than my health -- he quit drinking and I was pregnant one month later (we'd been married, but not trying - just a few accidents for 5 years)?????

On average - for everyone:

* 25% in the first month

* 60% in six months

* 75% in nine months

* 80% in twelve months

* 90% in eighteen months

Reference

I think charting helped by my friend and I conceive as quickly as we both did.

Ummm...we got pregnant on the first try, but it was before I think I started having gluten problems. Actually, I think my pregnancy triggered my problems with gluten. We didn't do any ovulation planning or anything. We just "tried" every other day for the 2 weeks when I thought I might be most fertile and well...now we have a 2 year old little boy! :) I hope it's as easy for us the second time...we're planning on trying again next fall when I'm healthy again.

I didn't know how to vote on the first question because I never ever TRIED to get pregnant. I was almost always using some form of birth control but it never seemed to matter....I got pregnant anyway! :rolleyes:

Is this abnormal for someone with celiac disease?

I got married at 18 and had all four of my children by the time I was 25....I didn't have severe celiac symptoms until after my last pregnancy (my son). Perhaps four pregnancies in 6 years helped the celiac disease get worse? :blink:

I had been charting for a while just so I'd know my cycles, which were super long. Technically there were some months in there where we weren't specifically trying that things ended up being timed so that I could have gotten pregnant (and secretly I hoped I would be). However, I waited until I defended my doctoral dissertation. Then we timed everything properly and used pre-seed, and I was pregnant that first month. I finally "gave birth" to my diss (after a 24 month gestation) and then immediately got pregnant!

My first two babies were unplanned, and that was pre-diagnosis (and really pre-acute-symptoms). I did have trouble growing a properly-sized baby the first time, and I wonder whether that might have been due to my otherwise asymptomatic gluten problems.

I just got confirmation that I am now in fact pregnant after fertility treatments. We started trying 6 years ago. But that's not a fair number because we really only tried for 3 years before hubby had to have his prostate removed due to cancer. And then we of course stopped trying because no prostate = no tadpoles. I just got pregnant on my first IVF attempt. It's been a long road. As far as I know, my Celiac had nothing to do with why I didn't get pregnant when we were still trying the old-fashioned way, although by then I was definitely symptomatic and still no clue as to what was wrong with me -- we had some significant sperm-quality issues prior to the prostate-cancer diagnosis. Thankfully, the urologist we were seeing to try to resolve those problems caught the cancer very early -- much earlier than our regular doctor would have done, I'm sure. So our infertility may very well have saved my husband's life... or at least his long term health.

Anyway, I didn't vote because none of the answers really fit my situation.

My other kids are now in high school. We didn't quite mean for them to be THIS far apart, but we're obviously thrilled to be expecting nonetheless.

It took 6 months to get pregnant with my 1st, no period, so I had no idea when I was ovulating (or if I was at all!). I had mild symptoms at the time...

His pregnancy was rough on me... and labor and delivery were even worse, ended in emergency c/s.

He was born with a myriad of food allergies and intolerance... dx'd with Autism at 3 y.o.

2nd time, ONE try. 1st was only 14 months old, lol. I was also nursing, but I was gluten-free for my son for several months and that may have helped!! VBAC baby, very little food issues (just some minor ones). Only delay is speech thank goodness.

All my kids were born many years before my celiac diagnosis. The family joke was that all my husband had to do was PHONE HOME and I got pregnant!! ha ha

When I got pregnant with my first, I had no gluten issues and got pregnant after a couple of tries. My daughter is almost 7 and I found out I was celiac about a year and a half or so ago. I have been off birth control for about 2 years and found out this morning I am pregnant!!!!! I am sooooooo excited but very nervous at the same time as it has taken me so long to get pregnant.

Almost 5 years, including unsuccessful fertility treatments. Got positive blood test for celiac October 13th, still was eating gluten (doc's orders), but cutting down a bit as it was triggering major asthma. Got pregnant October 24th, found out November 7th, gluten free as of November 9th (again on doc's orders). Officially diagnosed with celiac disease on November 11th by the specialist (said my blood test was crazy high, and, along with my medical history, was sufficient for diagnosis - no biopsy needed especially since I was pregnant).

I'm due July 17th, and all is going well.

I absolutely believe that if I'd known about the celiac disease earlier and gone gluten-free years ago, I'd have gotten pregnant much sooner.

My first took over 10 years. I was only trying for about 2 years and then gave up but never used BC after that and thought I couldn't have children. My second was concieved within 6 months. Both were concieved prediagnosis.

We weren't trying at all! There was a screw up with my pill prescription and I was off it for about 3 months. We knew it was a possibility but didn't think it would actually happen in that short amount of time. I've been gluten-free for several years. This is our first. I'm at 13 weeks and so far everything is going along very healthily.

It took me 7 months to get pregnant, miscarried at 6 weeks, got pregnant the next month and had a chemical pregnancy. Been trying ever since. We originally started trying last february. I just found out I may have celiac disease, or a gluten intolerance. I am gluten free now so we will see if it takes much longer to get pregnant and if I get to keep the next one, which would be nice :)
