I haven't been on this board very long so don't really know many people, but I saw your post and wanted to send big hugs to you. I'm so sorry to hear your news. Take care of yourself and give yourself time to grieve. Things to happen for a reason but when you are in the midst of them, it still sucks! So big hugs to you and definitely get some pampering!

We lost the little bun in the oven :( We'll start trying again when the man gets home from his deployment .

I'm ok, just eating frosting out of the container LOL. It's hard but I am thankful for the gluten free junk food you guys have showed me XD.

My thoughts and heart go out to you! I lost a baby before I had my son and daughter....((((((Hugs)))))


How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.

Thanks for all the help coping, guys. Making the phone calls was SO hard...Especially because my husband was gone. But we talked about it and if we wait until May, between his class date and deployment we can get pregnant and I'll only be alone for the first 6 months. I can handle that.

So hopefully it works!!


Diagnosed with Gluten Allergy April 2010. Family history of Celiac disease and bowel cancers. Already feeling a billion times better since going gluten free.

Thanks for all the support! We were pretty disappointed. It was worse on me because I saw it yesterday in an ultrasound and then today it was just gone. I have some GREAT pain pills and my husband took it pretty well (although he wants to try again when he gets home and so do I and we know it's just our parent sides being impractical). Anyway, I was asking the doctor if maybe my Celiac had something ot do with it and he said that being diagnosed could have messed with my hormones a bit. My body had to make some adjustments. So I am staying off birth control to let my body adjust. I told my husband it's HIS turn to worry about birth control LOL.

Thank you all so much. I am sure once my percocet wears off and my Pamelas Ginger Cookies are gone I'm going to be pretty sad. TOmorrow I booked a massage and I'm going to spend the day pampering myself while my son is at school. It's messed up that I still will have symptoms of pregnancy for up to a week. ALso, I have a baby bump (it's tiny but there) and I get sad whenever I see it.

Hmm...I think it's time to move onto snickers LOL.

Hugs, K8ling. You are doing the right things, taking care of yourself. Chocolate and massage help soothe many problems.


Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.

Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.

Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)

Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

So sorry for your loss:( I also lost one after my daughter was born and it was not easy, but what helped me get through it was I was also happy that as a women my body did exactly as it was designed to do. Our bodies knows when things are not right. Enjoy your frosting and massage and look forward to trying again. Good luck
