    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Is There A gluten-free Bun In The Oven?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My doctor called today, apparently he ran a pregnancy test "just to check" and the results were "inconclusive". He said that after a celiac disease diagnosis and treatment, it isn't uncommon to have a rise in fertility (which makes sense to me because I'm not torturing my body anymore). He had me go in for more bloodwork today and said it could be from an ovarian cyst. I have been on the pill but apparently our hormones react differently when our body is running efficiently.

It's super super bad timing (grad school, NCO salary, 12 months of deployment spread over the next 18 months, etc) but we would be...ok...with it since we wanted 3 and were told we may only be able to have one (if at all- surprise surprise the gluten-free thing straightened out my girly bits). Has anyone else had anything similar happen? Are my hormones just rebalancing?

This WOULD explain the entire jar of pickles I ate in ...ahem... one afternoon :rolleyes:

Anyway, I'll keep you posted.

I hope you've got a little bun in there. After being told I would need an egg donor at 31, we gave up trying. At 33 I was diagnosed celiac, and now at 35, I'm pregnant for the first time. My body reversed the liver and kidney damage the celiac caused. Apparently, it reversed at least some of the hormonal damage as well. Even though it is not the optimal timing for you, I know if there is a bun, you will make it all work out for the best. Just think, Hubby will be home just after the baby is born and won't have to miss that first year while deployed. I'll be crossing my fingers and toes for you.

I have a bun in MY oven! And my last miscarriage was 14 months before this pg, with infertility during that time. Also had another year-plus of infertility before that miscarriage. Now, suddenly I'm pregnant, at 38! And so far this pregnancy is going well!

That's cool that you guys were both able to conceive after being diagnosed! I am waiting for bloodwork to come in, but I am still leaning towards the ovarian cyst. Also, I would duct tape that baby in there, I am NOT having a baby without my husband. I am too stubborn LOL. I dunno, we'll find out this next week (bloodwork won't be back til Monday and PCM said there's really no reason to have an U/S).

If you are preggers I do hope that you have a little one who is in no hurry to get here and can hold off till he returns. I had my first when my significant other was far away on board a ship. As I was laboring away a nurse cheerful handed me the phone saying 'this calls for you', while it wasn't the same as having him right there it was wonderful to hear his supportive voice. If your little one is born while hubby is deployed I hope you can do the same. If not know that he will be there with you in spirit.

Keep us posted and I will keep my fingers crossed that whatever are your wishes that is the way things turn out.
